Les Semaines April 24, 2011: All The Things  
There's this really funny blog called Hyperbole and a Half, and one of the entries from last year explains my life. Check out This is Why I'll Never Be An Adult if you haven't already. Go on, I'll still be here when you get back. Or maybe once you've seen that you won't need to come back.

That is why I haven't posted anything here since January. I have been doing All The Things! Or rather, I have been trying and failing miserably to be doing All The Things. System failure has struck more than once.

I have such good intentions. I am going to keep up with email! Keep updating my blog! Do all the errands! Work! Write! All The Things! Yes, I have been surfing the internet like an attention-deficient squirrel on PCP.

I even sometimes did the banking.

So what have you missed? The months are a blur.


I am doing things!

Someone clearly Isn't Paying Attention at the University of Washington because someone else has given me a freshman seminar to be in charge of. No one thought, "hey, wait, no one has given her her own class to be in charge of for a whole pile of years; maybe there is a reason for that?" No. No one thought of that. And no-one warned the students. So now, once a week I meet with a group of first-year university students and brainwash educate! them. I'm having a good time, even if I talk too much. They'd better watch out, because instead of talking I'm ready to listen.

The Clarion West class of 2011 has all been chosen and decided and invited and are preparing for their adventure. Exciting.

I've been listening to lots of cool, new music, and look at all the reading I have been doing (even if I haven't kept up with my reading comments). I've even been writing! But I haven't found the missing travel journal, so my retrospective journal section is still, sadly, empty.

Tune in next week to see if possibly keeping up with All The Things includes updating this journal. Only time will tell.

Very glad to see that it is all good busy!

It is. Thank you, Sherwood! I hope all your busy is good.

We joke about doing all the things too. My favorite Hyperbole post is the one about the cake.

The cake one is great!

Yes, all the things. What's embarrassing is that I really do think like this. I'll be driving along, thinking I've already been to the library and the post office and still have to go to the grocery store...not the bank, too! Please, no no, Too Many Things! It's Not Fair!"

I love Hyperbole and a Half.

I was just thinking about the pet ALOT the other day.

They have stick-in-the-mind-ness, don't they. The pet ALOT!
