a) a quiet office and
i get soooo much more work done on my crazy schedule, because i'm not constantly dealing with a barrage of phone calls, e-mails, and visits from co-workers and students. also, i don't have to listen to/deal with/look at tg. bonus! i get 3-4 hours alone in my office every night and it goes by so quickly. also, i can online shop and play web sudoku without fear of my boss coming in behind me and surprising me.
i am also one of those super annoying, perky morning people. an ex-boyfriend who i've remained close friends with and i still believe that the underlying reason we couldn't make it work is that he is basically a vampire and doesn't really become functional about 2pm, whereas i am up by 5:30am, ready to roll. with crazy schedule, i can wake up early, do a work-out, take the puppy boy for a walk, make myself a nice breakfast AND lunch, and laze about the house or in the yard until 1pm.
or do what i did today: catch up on movies. i joined the year 2009 and finally watched slumdog millionaire. i'm no film critic, so i can't speak to whether or not it deserved all those oscars, but i loved this little movie. i'm not sure i'll ever watch it again, because the abject poverty those children live in is very real and very upsetting, but it was worth sitting through it for the last 30 seconds of the movie. when he kisses her scar, i. MELTED. literally, just became a crying pool of yoga pants and self-tanner. have y'all seen it? what did you think?
happy college friday, buttercups!
