light bulb about to fizzle out
i just finished a long overdue paper (i have two more of those pa) and suddenly my mind is tired. when i just finished reading the essay, i found myself swimming in my thoughts … drowning in them even. i wanted to yank this theorist from his final resting place and scream at him for scaring the hell out of me.

i guess john coffy was right in being tired.
but you know what? i’m glad that my studies are one of the few ways that completely blocks everything out. it’s a refuge that i am happy to find.
oooh sleep. see you a little later pa.
