A Weekend to Work

--Grade at least 10 papers before bed.
--Mop the kitchen floor
--Clean up the cat puke... she is seriously amping up her game. I'm thinking she's dying... or it's spring hairball season.
--Organize my bookcase and vacuum my room
--Clean and mop bathroom

Saw Limitless yesterday. I liked it, except the ending. Like all of a sudden all of the loose ends were tied up. BAM! Finished, over, the winner clearly victorious. Wut?

The other thing I had a hard time getting past was the implausibility of the opening. This guy, who had never written ONE page had a book contract. They didn't allude to his writing for a magazine, a newspaper, nothing before this. So they gave him a book contract, with a New York City publisher based on... a good idea for a work of fiction? Yeah, basically this has never happened in the entire history of the world. For non fiction, maybe.

Other than that, it was pretty good. Some tense moments. One scene where I knew what was going to happen, and I just plain couldn't watch.

Back to work.

Spring Cleaning

This time of year there's an innate desire to open windows and vacuum, dust, reorganize... and not just in the house. I begin to prioritize my life, wanting to clean all of that up a little too. Oh, and for some reason, I just want to sleep. So these two desires struggle with each other, and I don't really feel happy when I'm doing either because it means I'm not doing the other thing.

Ya know?


Hmmm...

I do think it helps to do things we don't feel like doing-- things we know are "good" for us like going out with other people, cleaning, exercising, eating better. Seems like all of this could help combat, even though they are pretty much the EXACT OPPOSITE of what you want to do.
