  • Sitting in the library, listening to Cursive, taking a nap. Lately I have been so busy with planning the future, getting school work done, and just plain worrying that I've forgotten how nice it is to sequester oneself in a corner on the fifth floor of the library and just pass out for a while.

    Do I have work I should be doing? Most certainly. But the work isn't the thing, if you get my meaning. Sometimes it's better to shut the book and live.
