7 Quick Takes – !!!! Edition

1 Apr
1) Yes, another post from me. Two. In a night. Get over it. It’s happening.
2) It isn’t officially Finals week, but it’s almost worse – a huge, huge, huge paper, like, more important than senior paper, is due. . .TOMORROW! I’ve just got some revising and citations and things to do, but the dorms have had fire alarms, I have had an obscene amount of coffee (no, really. Viewer discretion advised), and it is really, really unlikely that I will, at any point before this afternoon, get sleep.
3) I actually have decent sleeping habits. I get no less than 6 or 7 hours of sleep every night. . .but at this time, every single semester, I turn into a crazy, wild-eyed, lazy, procrastinating college student. And I relish it. I love this time of the year. The stress, the deadlines, the lack of sleep, the giddy delirium, the crash after. . .
4) That was not an April Fools. I’m for serious.
5) I love coffee made in a French press. Except for the last cup of coffee you get out of a brewing, when the coffee sludge is all in the bottom of your cup, and you just have to take it like a shot.
6) I mean, so I hear. About the shot thing. And. . .all. . .
7) I’m glad I decided to write 7 Quick Takes now, instead of a couple of hours and a few pitchers of coffee down the road, when I’ve hit the panicky, paranoid, shaky stage of my annual epic all nighter.
I. . .don’t know. Just, visit Jen for more lucid quick takes.

    Success! I hope you make your deadline. Think of all the things you can do after you finish: sleep, cook, eat, clean, sleep!

    AHAHA! I love it. I hope your birthday was awesome, and good luck with all your papers. You can do it!! They always get done… eventually. My roommate and I drank A LOT of coffee our senior year. I’m still recovering.

    Caffeine and sugar, that’s the ticket! I hope your paper got done and you got some sleep. See you tonight! Love you much…

    This is hilarious and totally made my day! I’m glad I’m not the only one who thrives off the adrenaline rush of last-minute paper writing. (My master’s thesis is due in 2 days and I’m STILL finding new books to cite.) But my hair never looks as good as that picture at 2am.

    I LOVE FINALS!!! I haven’t met many people who like finals. Most roll their eyes and want to stab me with something. Wooot!

    Love the photos. Good luck with finals. That time always made me crazy. And then vacation came and every time I’d get sick.

    I hope this isn’t a totally weird comment, but you are like really, really pretty. Pretty people intimidate me, just a little. 🙂

    I know you’ve had a rough Lent, so we’ve been praying for you! The day is almost here! 🙂
