Up and About

I'm 2,043 words into a 3,000 word essay due at 10:10am. Its 4:34am. Usually I'm far better at planning ahead. But this situation was unavoidable. This week my iCalender looks like a mostly finished Tetris game. 

It's such a bizarre feeling being up so late. I just grabbed coffee from McDonalds, the only place open 24/7 in Middlebury, VT. No open stores, no people, no lights, no nothing. It feels like I am in a post-apocoliptic city. Everyone around here is unconscious and lying horizontally, while I buzz around. 

The weirdest thing is that my phone has been silent for hours. The stream of emails and texts has stopped. I have nothing to distract me from my work. Except for my blog.
