Zombie Hour

Random musings at 3:13 AM:

I haven’t been sleeping¬† at normal hours these days – something that has been going on for a long long time. I blame all these theater closing shifts and my odd school schedule for doing this. It sucks, because I’m always taking naps during the day but at this hour I’m wide awake bored. I guess a cure for that would be to hang more with the newly-christened ‘Cineplex Losers.’

It’s currently week six in school and so far I haven’t really gotten into ‘the mood’ lately when it comes to digging into the material. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because of the lack of engagement in the classes, or the fact that my distant education class is just… distant. It’s a really weird semester, and I figure it won’t be the last.

I’m looking forward to jamming more these days – see previous post. I don’t know what kick started the whole change in attitude, maybe because I don’t want to embarrass myself when I start going to the jam sessions at the guitar club at school. I really missed the old high school days where the old band would kick around tunes and we’d spend afternoons bangin’ while getting distracted playing Halo 2.

I also joined a community volunteer club called the ‘Love Your Neighbor Club,’ something that’s also pretty exciting. I think it’ll be cool.

One last thing: my subscription to World of Warcraft expired tonight. Surprised? The reason was simple: there was no time at all to dedicate the amount I needed in order to succeed in that game. With the delicate juggling act of school, work and socializing with my fellow humans, it was impossible to accommodate what pretty much was a hobby that required way too much work to maintain with minimal returns in the end. I’m looking around at some of the top players in that game, and I figure the only way you’re going to advance and be amongst the elite is to have a crap load of time,¬† be willing to restructure your weekly schedule to accommodate your group activities, and a tolerance for a community that encourages being jerks to each other. No thanks.

Oh, and Matt needs a new cardigan and/or scarf. Please link cool clothes so I may buy and look cool in front of chicks and make lame dudes jealous when I walk by.

UGH, sleep has been driving me crazy too – if its not evening shifts at the library its my stupid 18 year old dog scratching at my bedroom door at 3:00am. Same also to the not being engaged with school. I think about school every twenty minutes, yet I don’t feel like myself when it comes to participating lately. Its not that I’m slacking, its just that I am worried about grad school applications and I feel I don’t have enough time or ideas. As for the cardigans, take some inspiration from this GQ article with Mr Hudson: http://www.mrhudson.com/blog/2009/09/17/gq-x-mr-hudson/.
