Learning is work

I am so tired. I was in class today from 8:30 to 4:30. That's the same class, not different ones where your mind has a chance to think of something different. It's because of the screwup last week at Extended so that we could only get three hours of the six hour class. By the end it just was so hard to pay attention to what I was learning, but it was better than coming back next Saturday, which was the only other option.

I started the day by riding over to the bakery to pick up bread before work started only to realize I had two library books in my basket that I had meant to drop off at the branch by my apartment as they were due today. I was far enough over that it was best to just continue to Himmel but these errands added three extra miles to my commute and I raced into class at the last minute. I had 30 extra minutes this morning since class didn't start till 8:30 and just got too complacent and left home later than I should and in a hurry. It always works that way.

After getting home I had to ride to the store for a few groceries and then I just came home and collapsed. I've been just sitting here eating junk. This has been a stressful week and I'm pooped.

The Non-Functioning Brain

My brain is not working good.
My brain is tired of thinking.
It wants to just sit there and gaze
And not really comprehend anything.
It really doesn't want to know
What is going on because then
It would have to think.
It would have to let in knowledge.
Even knowledge of not much
Is too much right now.
