Well, self… I’m back!
I’ve taken a few days to myself, and within that period, I’ve been very productive… Drinking that is. One thing that I do know about myself, is that I work best under pressure. I KNOW I got this habit from my mother, unintentionally of course.
I can remember being very young and going to work with my mom and it seemed that every corner she turned (I know because I was right under her feet), someone wanted something of more importance than the last person. On top work stress, she had to deal with raising four boys (My dad, younger and older brother & myself). She handled everything gracefully while exuding strength, but the poor thing never rested. She is a very strong woman and the sole reason I’m great at multitasking and waiting until the last minute. But I can’t blame her. Growing up observing her stress levels I noticed there were never any previous minutes, only the ones we were missing. So, this is exactly why I thrive under pressure, even if it’s self induced.
With this, instead of preparing for the spring semester or working twice as hard at my jobs, I’ve been drinking. At least I’ve been able to connect better with Amy Winehouse. That’s a plus, right? She turned out okay. Well, until she died. Regardless, I’ve enjoyed myself. But, alas it’s back to the grind. I start school on Wednesday and thus ends my social life. But I won’t let it get me down, because much like the late Amy Winehouse, I’ve stocked up on tons of cocaine… Okay, so maybe I’m not quite in the right mindset, but I’m working on it. The mere fact that I’m putting this much attention into a blog post gives me hope… So does adderall.
In conclusion, I’m looking forward to another exciting semester of learning. I’m especially excited about my Diversity class this semester. I’m still finishing up my 2012 bucket list, even though I’ve already started knocking things off! Hopefully by the end of this week I’ll be more focused and driven, just in time for the 2012 Baton Rouge Art Gallery Surrealist Ball (can we say parrtay)!
