Insomnia Update

I'm still awake. I managed to skip a class and catch a nap on the newsroom sofa between 12:30 and 2:30 this afternoon. I should have slept longer. I could have. The newsroom was uncharacteristically quiet for a Wednesday (paper day). Should have... Could have... Didn't. I guess that's how those sort of things go.

I did get a big chunk of the script written... as in everything but a closing. My advisor had already turned in my mid-term evaluation, so I'll still get a black mark for being a slacker. I think he lacks faith in me. That's understandable, though, because we really haven't worked on any projects together. I haven't had a chance to amaze him with my skills and achivements. Of course, at the moment... I'd just like to be able to amaze myself.

I also turned in my practicum time sheet... 16 hours. For those of you in remedial math, that means I've gotta put together 54 hours somwhere. My major advisor says it shouldn't be a problem. My practicum advisor says I'll be cutting it close. I don't know who to believe.

This is doable. This is doable. This is doable. Or... as an old football coach of mine used to say, "This is no step for a stepper."
