Spare Time, I Could Use More

I would like to write more posts, but I am so busy with schoolwork that I barely have enough time to eat and sleep as it is. I treasure the moments I have in between reading books and writing papers, so I decided to write about them, because it's the most interesting thing I've thought about lately that is not history-related.

The first is, of course, sleeping uncomfortably for short amounts of time. This can happen anywhere, which makes it similar to dying in a tragic accident, except there is less dying and involved and the accident is more akin to an unfortunate mishap. So, I guess it's really not like dying in a tragic accident at all. At any rate, this plague strikes me when I am at my weakest, which is normally towards the end of the week. It can occur while I'm at work, reading at home, or working in the library (my home away from home). I will drift off for a few minutes, wake up, startled, and move on with whatever I was doing beforehand. I really should get more sleep.

I tried thinking of another thing that I do in between breaths, but I realized that I don't do much of anything else. Unless I count sitting on my couch, sipping tea, trying to motivate myself to not give up as I watch my gray hair display itself more prominently upon my head.

I'm creating this blog because my old blog was updated infrequently and also because I never really liked Wordpress. However, I did succeed in one area: creating the most boring blog on the entire Internet. I'd like to say that that was my goal from the outset, but it was really just an excuse for my terrible blogging frequency. I aim to make this blog slightly less boring than my last one. That's all for now.
