I wear a nap now

I had my Japanese exam this morning, which was… interesting. Not bad, not great, BUT IT’S DONE. That’s three exams out of the way and one more Wednesday. I’ll study Tuesday night… Bad, Rachel.

There are so many things I’m putting off till Tuesday, actually. Studying, laundry, heaps of dishes, oh and I’m working nine to five. At least laundry can be done at the same time as other things, and knowing me I’ll have plenty of not-studying time during which to wash dishes.

I go home to my mom’s apartment (where she and my brother live) for the holidays after my Wednesday exam. I have big relaxation plans: lots of reading and knitting. That won’t take up all my time, though, and I’m bound to get bored. SO, I would really like to take on some projects for the roughly two weeks I’m home. I would love to design one or two people a new theme, if anyone is interested. 🙂 I would ask like $20 compensation (portfolio here, yo). Anyone down?

I mentioned the other day that, when I’m in a bad mood (more like when I’m really friggin upset and want to die), falling asleep and forgetting the world is basically amazing and I wake up feeling so much better about basically everything. This evening I napped for about three and a half hours because I only slept about three and a half hours last night and had been up since 3am studying for my Japanese exam (my fault for not starting earlier). All day I had been feeling really fat and bloated and ugly, even though I was like super-proud of my outfit and thought it was the hottest thing ever (totally was, psh). When I woke up from my nap, I looked in the mirror and thought “you’re beautiful” before I even realized it. Totally made my day. 🙂

See? Naps are good things! I love naps. Naps are cool.

  1. Sometimes it’s okay to put off things as long as you eventually do them. Just don’t get stressed out, though it’s really only the exam that’s worthy of being worried about. Unless you’re like me and will probably be punished for not doing chores. 🙁

    Hope you get some people interested in themes. Prepare to deal with crap clients, that’s all I’m going to say. 😛 I’d hate to do work over Christmas, I’m good with having a break right now. I do want to get loads of things done before I jump back into it though. Bring on 2012. Fist bumpin’.

    Naps are indeed cool. I know why you said you wear a nap. *fist bump*

  2. Naps are tasty! Except when you’re like me and accidentally take a six hour nap instead of a one hour nap. =P

    Oh man! I have so many great choices if I ever want a custom theme! Time to compile a list of web designers and stalk them.

    Good luck on the rest of your exams! You’ve only got a few days left!

  3. I hope you did well on your exam! 🙂 Putting things off is really easy. I think we overestimate how much time we have to do things, and then we end up totally behind on everything and that’s why nothing ever gets done. Relaxing is great. I’m already taking my Christmas break by majorly procrastinating on schoolwork. 😛

    It’s great that naps help you feel better! 😀 I wish that worked for me. When I’m upset or sad or stressed out, I find it really hard to fall asleep for some reason. Probably because my mind is full of thoughts and it’s hard to clear my mind and relax.

    I really like your portfolio, by the way! It looks very professional! 🙂

  4. I think that I wear naps entirely too much….I’ll be up all night because I took a 3 hour nap today. 🙁 I hope that you passed all of your exams, and I’m off to check out your portfolio. 🙂

  5. During finals week, I have half days so I just come home and go straight to bed. I’m so tired and exhausted and I wake up feeling sooo much better. Naps are truly wonderful things. People may tease me for saying I’m a little kid for still taking them some time, but man THEY WORK!

    I hope you did well on your last exam! I always put studying off until the last minute, which is really awful, but somehow I always make it work for me.

    aaaand yes, my parents are definitely partly to blame. My dad just wants to help my brother out, because when he was 19 he moved like 1,000 miles across the country and his parents helped him out. So he was thankful for that and wants to do the same for his kids. My mom, on the other hand, has been so happy that he’s home. (He spent two years in Greece homeschool teaching). So it’s like, no matter what he does, she thinks it’s the most amazing thing since sliced bread. But, it’s out of my control, and they’re dealing with it the way they think it should be dealt with.

  6. You take Japanese? Lucky girl. XD Though it sounds hard to learn, just like any Asian language for me. Since it’s Friday now you’d be done right? What am I talking about haha tomorrow is Christmas Eve of course you’d be done now! It sounds very awful to have to work during finals week, as well as do chores. In my finals week I had absolutely no time to do chores. I was stuck with Christmas stuff for two days during it too.

    Lol I’m on winter break right now and I’m not bored. Probably because there are so many people around and I’m always doing something. It was so hard to get online for several hours tonight.

    I’ve never had a nap that long because I don’t even consider anything more than 3 hours to be a nap, but I’ve never known naps to be so refreshing. I guess if I’m really upset and cry myself to sleep I feel a lot better when I wake up. =)
