rescuing a lost weekend

It’s been a great week, generally speaking. I have a ton of reading to get through, as usual, but more on that later. I saw Frida one last time this past Friday with a friend. I had a really nice time (though I was surprised that we go through the exhibit in an hour, I took 2 hours my first time there) and it was so good to meet up with her. And then I sat in Mount’s Hedwig lecture. I can’t remember how he did it during first year – but everything he said was so easy and obvious to me. I suppose that is a good thing – that I did some growing.

I worked till 9pm on Friday but didn’t get any work done because I was chatting with co-workers. One of the things I love about my job is that most people there are thoughtful and have interesting things to say (since we’re all nerds by default).

And then the lost weekend began – rather than prepping for my exam and doing readings for my other classes, i watched 3 seasons of Mad Men. Do I regret it? No, but I feel terrible. So I’ll have to do my best to catch up now. Sigh, just thinking about it all is depressing. One thing to keep me upbeat is my dinner at Canoe! i can’t wait!!

PS. The Australian Open is happening and i’m rooting for Roger, obviously.

PPS. Made plans for Reading Week, eeeeek

PPPS. I managed to write poems this week – oh, how i’ve missed it so!

my brain and my will, that is. to cheer myself up, here is my TO LOOK FORWARD TO list after exams:

– THE HOBBIT

– SKYFALL (dad wants to see it)

– infinite trips to Frida & Diego (at the AGO, so sublime!)

– SLEEP

– ALL THINGS ANTHONY BOURDAIN

– some sort of massive steak dinner, i deserve it!

– READING FOR PLEASURE (i love reading plato, but it’s nice to read stuff i won’t be tested on)

– ANNA KARENINA (I know Keira is a bit hit and miss, but i love her and Joe Wright. All his films are to my taste)

– seeing friends (i’ve been the worst about meeting up. i simply don’t have time!)

– working out!!!

– geeking out w/ shakespeare fans!!
