Can't... take... much more...

Lately I've just had SO MUCH to do that not only do I not get much time to relax, but whenever I do get to take a break, it's usually not actually that relaxing because I still end up thinking about the stuff that has to get done soon.

As I mentioned a while back, I've been working on that physics research project as a part-time job. The conference that I have to attend is coming up soon (it's from March 31 to April 2), and at some point before that (probably THIS WEEK), I'll have to completely wear myself out putting together the information for the poster so I can present it. Hopefully this is the last time I ever have to give a presentation about this project... but with my luck, there will probably be about three more conferences I have to present at. :(

Not only that, but even though I have a part-time job already, I'm now required to look at two listings for potential full-time jobs every week. And I've been having to do more of the chores at home... which I'm not very good at remembering to do. AND recently there was a whole bunch of paperwork I had to do, AND I had to update my résumé recently, AND there's probably more things like that that I'll have to do soon... and so on and so forth.

About 117 days until I get to be happy again...

I'm definitely not even close to being ready to be an adult, even though I'm SUPPOSED to be because I was in college for 4½ years. :(

This entry does not get a repost button because it is friends-only. I decided to make this and the next one public because of later public entries that mention this conference.

Damn, that sounds hectic... is there any time for sleeping, eating & such trivialities? Do you even remember how it feels like to have free time?

I hope you will pass this hard time & that the '117' days will go smooth for you. ;)

Well, there is time for sleeping and eating and stuff - and actually I usually do get a decent amount of free time, but it usually doesn't feel like it's that much since there's so much work to do. :(

I feel a little better now that I know that the poster is due next week, though - I'll still probably have to finish it by the end of this week, but at least it's not THAT close to being due. :)

Although I stressed myself out so much earlier today that my head still hurts right now... :(

I guess so, it might be hard to really take your mind off of the work whenever you have free time. Right?

Yeah, sometimes it is... :(

Hopefully I'll feel better in general about it once I'm done with the conference.

I don't think anyone is ever ready to be an adult! Try to stay calm, do things that will let you relax in between everything else. Hug.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
