Since everyone else uses Blogspot...

Or at least two of my closest friends here at West Point... as well as most running blogs.  This is just easier. 

So this will be my first REAL blog on this site then.  Anyways.  It's almost three a.m.  I've been working on the same two page assignment for hours and just can't seem to focus enough to get anything done.  I think I've turned slightly into a perfectionist in my work.  I have a hard time turning in crap at this point... Which is likely why my GPA went up from a 2.87 to a 3.2 last semester.  That's a pretty big jump considering I don't think I got any smarter.  And I definitely spent more time out than I did doing work.   Honestly though, couldn't this have happened BEFORE my class rank was locked in?  Then maybe I'd be going to Lewis instead of Drum.  But it's okay.  I'm sure I'll enjoy being near Canada and the Adironacks.  Really, those are the reasons I chose Drum over Korea or Bragg.  Though when the cold was hitting my face this morning while I had to walk back from an appointment I had I was wondering what I was thinking choosing Drum... I'm sure I'll appreciate it in the summer, or when I'm out skiing, or taking random pictures of snowy days. 

Anyways, I don't know how I'm making any sense at all at that point. Or maybe I'm not and tomorrow I will read this and end up wondering if I was drunk when I wrote it (except I'm not because I haven't drank anything tonight).  I don' tknow how I'm awake.  Listening to one of my new favorite bands, or rather CD, because it's a mix of three bands... it's called Lost Wisdom, and it is a mix of  Mount Eerie, Julie Doiron, and Fred Squire.  It's very soothing, if not a little depressing, and the harmonies are great. It just seems so befitting for being awake at such a late hour. It just seems to facilitate thoughts (unless those thoughts are related to tactical decisions.  Then it kind of kills them.) I'm going to finish this paper now.  That my instructor said would only take 60-90 minutes.  I wish.


  1. I'd guess there's a pretty small chance that you were drunk when you wrote this. Just sayin'.

  2. Perhaps drunk off of a lack of sleep :)
