Friday Fun! (Inception and General Busyness)

August 27, 2010 4 comments

Just a quick check-in today my lovely readers.  It’s a busy Friday!

I had a lovely week in spite of the rain at the beginning.  I actually found the cooler weather to be a nice relief, both to me and to my electric bill!  I went to see Inception this week, and while my friend and I would have had fun watching Joseph Gordon-Levitt in pretty much anything, the movie itself is truly great!  I loved following the plot during it, then thinking out all the possibilities after.  (I might possibly have lost some sleep doing just that).  I also really enjoyed the soundtrack.  I believe it’s by the same composer who did The Dark Knight.  In any case, it’s just as powerful.

I finished my final project for my summer session online class, although I still have a bit of forum discussion left to do before it’s officially over at the end of this week.  Naturally, my fall online class starts earlier than Simmons–this week to be exact, so I’m getting a bit of an overlap.  I have a scheduling strategy though, so thus far I’m not too stressed about it.  This semester is my final semester of my MLIS program, and I’m going to be so incredibly happy to be done.  I’m not looking forward to my face-to-face class at all.  It’s cataloging, which I’ve put off for last for a reason.  (I really hate the technical services aspect of librarianship), but it needs to be done, so I’m planning on grinning and bearing it, haha.

Two of my friends are also moving this week, so I’ve been helping them when I can.  Last night they crashed at my place as they had a one night apartment gap.  This weekend I’ll be cooking a special dinner to help ease the stress for them and also helping clean their previous apartment in preparation for the security deposit check by the landlord.  It’s busy, but it’s always nice hanging out with them, even if it is working on something or just them sleeping on my couch.  (I have a couch that’s very disproportionately large for my apartment.  It’s amazing).

How about you guys?  Has the busyness of fall started to catch up with you or are you still in summer relaxation mode?  What are your stress management strategies?
