I'm hot and sweaty.
I want to take a shower.
I'm also exhausted.
I want to sleep.
But I have to write at least one more section of this paper before I can do any of that because I know that if I stop, I won't start again.
I am, however, taking a food break because passing out from low blood sugar definitely won't do me any good. I went to the deli and got food and stopped and visited a few friends who are working on the block tonight. Sometimes the best thing I can do is take a mental break, and seeing those friends was definitely the best kind of break.
Now I'm eating and trying to motivate myself to write this next section of the paper.
It's not working so well.
Big props to the Hamilton soundtrack for keeping me awake. If y'all haven't checked this out, DO IT. You can listen to the whole thing on YouTube if you don't have money to buy it on iTunes. It's not a wonder in the least as to why this musical is nominated for SIXTEEN TONY AWARDS.
