what i’m doing vs what i want to be doing

It has been ages since I’ve blogged. Months ago, a good friend of mine gave me a brass snail that she picked up at a garage sale, and suggested that I slow down just a tad. I placed the snail in a spot where I see it every morning when I wake up, but so far, it hasn’t helped. Have been busy finishing my undergrad thesis so that I can actually graduate this Saturday (done!), working on a conference committee that I stupidly agreed to be on (over!), applying for a home repair grant (submitted!), and moonlighting at a greenhouse ’cause school has left me dead broke.


What I’d much rather be doing is lingering in bed on the weekends, putting on some groovy tunes and cleaning my house, drinking cider while working in the garden, and on rainy days like today (a holiday that I’m working, by the way) re-using some of the material from my awesome snake skin crushed velvet pants that really shouldn’t be seen in public any more (if ever they should have been) to make myself a new bag.
