the expected personalized interlude
Here’s another obligatory update. I’ve been keeping these rants short, because I have bigger fish to fry. If you’re into pattern detection, then you know exactly why I still sprinkle this collection with first-person prose that reflects something or another that might be relevant to the big picture or not. June flew by. To 100-degree heat: Please do your best to stay out of the beautiful city of Austin.
My summer session ends at the end of this month. I slacked a bit this semester, but I’m doing A-OK. The Fall semester is probably going to eat me alive. I amuse myself with the anxiety I gather before I have to do anything learning-related and absolutely love the feeling I get after I’m done with a learning-related task. Installing wrinkles in my brain keeps the necessary stress of life at a normal level and sure beats boredom and feeling like a robot.
Half of the year has already passed us. I’ve been focused on new and more interesting ventures which are becoming more and more rewarding slowly but surely. At this day and age, I’m no longer surprised how years go by before goals are met. I do feel disheartened by the displacement of energy upon completion of projects, because the routine can be comforting. I realize that’s just the torch being passed on to the next accomplishment. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. This isn’t rocket science.
