Working on my end-of-the-semester projects again. I have my first-ever literature review due on Monday, a take-home exam (I have no idea how to find the information I need to get) and the final bits of a website project due on Tuesday, and an agonizing sit-down test on Thursday. I want to die. Or throw up, I'm not sure which. It'd be easier if I had my laptop at home and could just jump in and out of homework, instead of several-hour-long stretches in one of the computer labs. (Even a typewriter, for god's sake!)

My literature review is on censorship in public libraries. I'm diving it up by themes, one of which is on what is appropriate for children. I'm so far gone that I'm trying to find a legit way to include the line "Think of the children!"

As I'm writing the review, when I get stuck I write in and then erase lines like, "I'm running away to Canada now" and "I want to drink tea until I'm in my happy place." Seriously, I write much better when I have a cup of tea.

Edit: I've been in the computer lab a bit less than two hours. My brain is fried. I wanted to write at least 1,000 words on the lit review tonight. I wrote around 450. I am now going home to indeed drink tea until I'm in my happy place. Or I'll get out the liquor. I'd rather be working on yuletide.

Oh honey. Here's my prediction: you'll get through more than you think you will, and in a couple of days you'll be sitting pretty. There's always a moment where it feels crazy, but things tend to get better fast this time of year!

I'm much better this morning, after deciding to leave when I knew I wasn't going to get any more work done. Slept well and that was nice. Things will start to improve after Tuesday.
