I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity – Edgar Allan Poe

The semester is almost over and I’ve emerged relatively unscathed. The workload was almost overwhelming but I found that balance. The blessed trifecta of student life: Work, School, Social Life. Everyone said it couldn’t be done. That you can’t have it all. They said my GPA would suffer or my work would slack or I’d forget about my friends/family… But I found the secret. Are you ready for this little gem? The secret is… Don’t sleep.

Now I know what you’re thinking, that’s impossible. I never said don’t get rest. That would kill you. Just get shut eye whenever you can. Feign narcolepsy, nap standing up, or just plain doze off when the unimportant stuff is happening. Unimportant stuff includes but is not limited to: Lectures, boring conversations, after getting yours. But never, and I mean never, pass out during the important shit i.e: Getting yours (I hear you get slapped for that). You’d think I’d be burnt out, but oddly I feel revitalized.

The next morning, I sent a little probe down into my brain. No surge of brilliance came up to greet me. I felt thick and stupid. But something remained. – Limitless

I started this blog as a school project and did my best to keep it school-centric. Now that the class is done this blog should just whither and die. But I don’t see why it should. I enjoy writing it, but I do feel the need to re-brand it. While it was still a class project I had every intention of keeping it as professional as possible. When first given the project I was told I couldn’t get too “graphic” with the content. That was a bit of a problem, because those who know me know I am quite graphic; borderline vulgar (but in the most respectful sense of the word)

It probably doesn’t help that I am utterly infatuated with the show Californication and the blunt eroticism of its script. One of the best compliments of my writing came from one of my peers. She said, and I quote, “Your manuscript reads like an erotic novella” (edit: She read this post and said she also called it a Harlequin novel but I don’t get the reference)  I couldn’t have been more pleased with her. Although thinking back I don’t know if it was a compliment.
