The Vortex of Time and Space…Monday, September 20, 2010
Also known as…my house.
As many of you know, I’m studying for my boards right now. I am working a little bit, but most of the time I’m home studying. This means I’m living on this whacked out schedule where most days I have nowhere I have to be. And I have
very little no concept of days, dates, or time…
I know you’re probably asking, “What’s the problem again?”
What’s happening is I’m staying up way too late every night and then sleeping in too late in the mornings… Then I stay in my pajamas until 3pm, ignoring all basic, human hygiene rules… Shower? Toothpaste? Pants? Nope, nope, and nope.
My thoughts exactly…
This might be fun for a weekend, but this has been my routine since we got back from Italy and will likely remain my routine until I sit for Boards. Any pre-planned social activities, I arrive over-accessorized and smelling delicious in an outfit I planned three days ago.
[Yes, I know I can leave the house to study and have even done so a few times… But I’m just not THAT disciplined right now. Leaving the house when I don’t have to gets really complicated… I have to, like, brush my hair and put on pants and it’s just so much easier to study with nappy hair…]
Lord help me if I even step foot in my basement—that windowless haven where daylight does not exist and any concept of circadian rhythms or an internal clock vanish. I’m bad enough as it is…
I think the neighbors are already talking about that new chick in the neighborhood that never leaves her house and only emerges to water the plants in her pajamas and sunglasses (with a giant crater on her cheek because she isn’t washing her face enough…).
I AM filling my head with priceless knowledge in order to keep working to better the lives of special needs children in our nation’s capitol.
That makes it okay, right?
