I knew I was in trouble when I found myself aimlessly wandering around the gym….trying to figure out how to use simple machines and wondering why I was seeing three of most everything that came into my tightening scope of vision. This week has been brutal. Back to back to back midterms and a paper due at the end of the week have me wondering how long I’m actually going to sleep tonight. My futile attempt at staying awake till 9 pm lead to the gym, where I actually achieve negative health benefits. At least I was awake enough to stick my iPod in my ears….so there was a soundtrack to my aimless wandering. I remember feeling like this right around day three (of five)of the first semester of the first year’s midterm week….but once again, I’ve fooled myself into believing that 2nd years are impervious to this type of bodily harm.
On a more cheerful note, we have another top ten vs. top ten matchup to watch this weekend: Longhorns vs. Missouri. ESPN’s College Gameday is in town, so a couple of us have made a pact to set out to campus early. Pairing business with football, a couple of friends and I have purchased future contracts for Longhorn National Championship tickets….let’s hope this isn’t a deterrent to pulling out a win on Saturday.
