I'm supposed to be writing to my parents and various embassies & govt. agencies, making lists, doing some online shopping of furniture, planning my work for tomorrow and the weekend.

But instead I'm drinking Chilean Cabernet, listening to my iPod and writing here.

It's not a tough choice.

Yeah, I should be entering data into our system at work, but I'd much rather be here. Thankfully, they're pretty lax about internet usage in my office. ;)

Studying for my last final.

ENCE340 Geotech/Soils

Yes...my last one. Too bad its tomorrow 8AM, and I've just come back from my exam from 1:30-3:30PM today.

Translation: Brain is pooped.

Practice the piano. Compose some tunes for the studio recordings next weekend, make four webpages for various clients, practice drums for final exams, or simply just organize my life in order to know what to do next!

Having a good schedule means everything these days. May can be a tough month when being a student and working part time. I had an incredibly hard day today, mostly because I feel like having too much to do. And it's all because I don't have everything scheduled correctly. I only end up thinking about all the work waiting for me, and worst of all - during the time I actually could relax and do nothing. Or just browse MR, like now.

In a Mauve Dream
Organizing my Design files

I have a routine back up I have to make... I design all graphics/media for my company; they all think I am the "creative, emotional, moody" guy at the company so they leave me all alone...

...I also pretty much manage the theatre they lease, so between my esoteric corner, and the escape to the theatre, I can do whatever I want during slow times..

Anyway, my employer's only quirk is that he wants all my work backed up; I think it makes him nervous that all the company's creative stuff fits in my messenger bag: a 12" PB and a LaCie Porsche portable. For some reason, it makes him feel better that the work is on the loud, huge server. So every month I have to back it up, in folders, all neat-like.

But, instead I am on MacRumors, listening to Damien Rice's "O", ripping 3 NetFlix DVD's I received today, which I will promptly drop back in the mail bin at the end of the day. They don't even care I rip DVD's at work. They're pretty cool... okay, back to slacking.

Should be taking out the trash, taking my bike off the car, folding the laundry the other half left on the bed, vacuuming the house and getting chores done before the weekend.

I took a Vicodin and posted here instead.

It's my boss' fault. he ruined my day.

Again. :rolleyes:

I have my last exam tomorrow too, 2pm BST...

HI709: British social history, 1815-1915. Should be revising, instead -- I've just been playing OpenTTD, reading Tom's, tweaking my PC (you heard right), pretty much everything but revision. Oops.

It seems that most have very understanding employers.

At the moment I'm doing just what's expected.

I'm free at this moment. Nobody will care if I post here now. I work in the mornings, and I will be starting summer classes at college the week of June 13, 2005, in the evening - leaving a block of time open in the middle of the day for MacRumors activity.

I'm should be working on that math final that is due by midnight tonight (internet class-math 128). Only 30 more problems, then I can go look at bike parts (just broke my fork and need a new one for cheap).
