Blahhhhnormallifemehhh

My friend Paige used the above phrase in her post today, as she is settling into her normal life after an awesome vacation. THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL!  (and I am so passionate about it that I used all caps!)

The thing is school starts on August 25, which means after today, I have 6 work days to be ready for the onslaught. And like, 1 of those days is just devoted to an all-day training, so I have really only FIVE work days to get ready. ...and all I wanna-do-is-zooma-zoom-zoom-anda-boom-boom!

...and by that I mean: I just want to read Harry Potter and dream about being at the Iowa State Fair and eating Pork-Chops-On-A-Stick...and be anywhere but my chair, staring at a computer screen.

Oh.
My.

Please...please...

Find my motivation and send it to me.
Or at least a good Pandora station that will make me want to shake my rump. into action.



For sticking around: here's some fun insight into Dan & Jessica conversations:
 
Walking on our way to our buildings this morning:

Dan (talking about essays he had written in high school): Sometimes, I would use Garth Brooks quotes in my essays for tests. Like in 'American Experience,' which was a combination English/American History/social studies class, when we writing about Black History Month -
 
Jessica (interrupting): You quoted, "We Shall Be Free."
 
Dan: Yeah. and it was awesome. I knew it would get me points.
 
Jessica: You know, I would have used it because I believed it.

There you have it: Dan, the pragmatist. Jessica, the idealist.
 
For what it's worth.....

i'm with you, lady. on the whole 'normal life is the worst' front, of course. not so much on the 'garth brooks quote in a paper' thing, unless it was that one song that's all, 'and the thunder rolllllllls,' because it's catchy. which is where i diverge from you and dan in my garth brooks usage: dan wants the points, you want the gut-level belief, i just want to be entertained.

ah, garth brooks. everything to everyone.
