Schedule Rotation

I don't have class on Monday (I guess that's today now) for the first time and already my sleep and work schedule has rotated.  I went to bed last night like normal (around 10:30 p.m.), woke up at 2:30 a.m. and started to work.

More than anything else, I think this reflects the fact that before going to bed last night I truly realized for the first time how completely fucked I am trying to finish the papers and presentations I have due Wednesday, Friday, and next Monday.  Basically, I need to work every single moment that I possibly can and this morning at 2:30 a.m., working was possible. 

(Last night I also realized that I had failed to put Wed. morning's seminar on my Big Calendar of Doom, which features for April a rabbit who is surprisingly non-disapproving*; rather he seems to look more and more concerned as the month marches on.  Yeah, me too, little bun.  I have all my deadlines through next Monday laid out on this month's page, so Worried Bunny will be my companion until May 8.  Then no doubt he will be replaced by a more traditional rabbit who will disapprove of my unrealistic optimism as I plan to get a ton of work and fun accomplished over the summer break.)

* The calendar is not specifically a disapproving rabbit calendar but it's still a bit surprising to see a rabbit who looks so free of disdain for the dumb-ass-ity of humans.

Now I'm going to take a shower so that when Robert's alarm goes off, I can join him for breakfast (I am really hungry) then immediately return to the paper I'm working on.  Well, I guess before returning to work I should check that Worried Bunny has not committed suicide so as to avoid watching my academic career go up in flames...
