“Night Walk”: “Hermit”

3:50 AM I was looking through some old messages between some good friends and I on Facebook. I realized just how little we had talked to each other, or hung out, over the last few years. Unfortunately, it's been that way with about 95% of my friends, since probably 2013 or 2014. There are 3 … Continue reading “Night Walk”: “Hermit”

Spring Semester Wrap-Up and Summer Break

It is 3:45 AM, the Monday after Finals. I am still waiting on grades from 2 classes. Here's what I know and what I'm guessing on (in red): Intro to Supply Chain Management: I don't know what I got on my Final but it was not good - my semester average dropped a fraction of … Continue reading Spring Semester Wrap-Up and Summer Break

The 12 Days of Finals: Day 12 (and 13)

That picture sums things up. Day 12 (Thursday) The lesson for Thursday: don't battle on two fronts when your reserves are nearly spent. The "reserves" in question were the energy levels. The "two fronts": a project and the body. My plan was to go to Planet Fitness late morning, then come back home and wrap … Continue reading The 12 Days of Finals: Day 12 (and 13)

The 12 Days of Finals: Days 7-9: “It Begins!”

Day 7 (Saturday) To use a Track and Field phrase, I "could not get out of the blocks". The physical exhaustion finally caught up with the mental exhaustion. I managed to get another unit of Discussion Board posts and responses finished for my Systems Thinking class... but that was at about 11 PM, at work. … Continue reading The 12 Days of Finals: Days 7-9: “It Begins!”

The 12 Days of Finals: Day 3

Supplies are fine. Main enemy - the Web Site Project - not engaged today. GOOD. Sleep... 2 attempts at naps, 2 failures. I had hoped to spend time at Team Trivia this evening, as 'downtime', but could not get enough to field a team again. Since I probably won't be there next Tuesday, it will be 4 out … Continue reading The 12 Days of Finals: Day 3

“Night Walk”

A Night Walk is not a good idea, right now. There's the whole "not particularly safe" clause. And the foot issues. Instead, since it about 1:25 AM EST, and I can't fall asleep, a mental "Night Walk" will have to suffice. The sleep issue goes back a while. I sometimes have nights where the mind … Continue reading “Night Walk”

Balance

"No... sleep... 'TIL BROOKLYN!!!" -The Beastie Boys   Any room on that scale for Elliptical Bike work? I've heard somewhere before that "life is a balancing act." Well, the Fall semester of 2016 has been a balancing act for the ages. I'm now getting hours at Kinetic again, working at TRIMARC (a traffic monitoring place, under … Continue reading Balance

“Inside The Terrordome”: ‘No Gorillas or Presidential Race’ Zone!

When I started a draft of this blog a few days ago, I never would have imagined that I would be adding the following sentence to it this weekend: "Muhammad Ali has passed away." My hometown - Ali's hometown - is still in various degrees of shock, stunned, sadness, and acceptance. Whether you watched boxing or … Continue reading “Inside The Terrordome”: ‘No Gorillas or Presidential Race’ Zone!
