So I have this habit of not wanting to sleep when I have things to be doing. But not sleeping doesn’t increase my productivity really, well when it’s past 2 or so. So I just end up depriving myself of sleep, when it probably would have been better for me just to go to bed at 23:00 and try to work in the morning.
Needless to say, I haven’t finished my thesis yet. I have just a bit more to write, and it is the simplest part, but my brain is just done. It doesn’t want to deal with this anymore. Not really an option I’m afraid. I woke up this morning at around 09:00, tried to write and then cram for my Global History final at 13:30. I’m a little disappoint in myself. All year I’d been really good about being prepared for my history class. Doing all the readings, paying attention. But the past two weeks or so I completely failed to do anything. And to my disappointment, the final wasn’t as comprehensive as a would have hoped for. The majority of the questions and essay topics were on the more recent material, so I’m not to happy with how I think I did. However, it’s over and all I can do is wait for the grade to be posted in a week.
My parents came to the residence this morning, and dropped off a couple of things. Although 2 out of 3 are rather useless: (1) My mother bought the wrong prescription contact lenses for me so either I have to walk blindly across the stage at graduation or with glasses; (2) The inflatable mattress I needed for my visiting-Una doesn’t have its electric pump so I don’t know what to do; (3) Graduation shoes!
I know the shoes are rather ridiculous, but I really like them. What do you think? ] I must learn to walk in them before graduation though, so I’m not that girl who trips and spectacularly falls when getting her diploma.
