State of me, Monday, 4 March, 2013

I’m insane.

I have a test tomorrow morning, and then I’ll be spending the weekend in the testing center again; I have another round of math tests coming up. I also have a physics report due tomorrow, a physics homework due on Thursday, and a blog post for government due on Friday. Over the weekend, I did 56 pages of math homework.

I’m working something like 16 hours a day on schoolwork, and starting to cut into sleeping time to work on it; that’s about the only thing I have left to cut into. I still feel like I’m barely hanging on, and that I could fall behind at any moment, and that if I do, I’ll never catch up. I’m doing supremely well in all of my classes, and I feel like I’m always about to fail, that any slip up will lead to utter disaster. I think that’s part of why I do so well.

You aren’t getting a regular post right now. I have one that I want to write, and we’ll see about getting it done tomorrow. If not, I’ll put it in extra over spring break.

I got my physics test back finally, 45/47, averages to just over a 95%, so I’m happy with it.

I’ve gotten even more books for my ever growing stack of things that I desperately want to read when I have the time. It’s painful. I got one today that’s a little special, I’ll give details on that soon.

I’m doing my writing every day; it’s very exciting and fun. I’ve had to consider after midnight as the previous day a few times, but heck, it’s before I go to bed for the day, so I’m perfectly fine with counting it.

My story is coming ever closer to the conclusion. I’m going to push to end it this week. I already have a host of ideas for what I can do next. I’ll be looking at all of them over the break, probably rough rough outlining each one in a single day, and then selecting one, and doing some serious character and world building before launching in to it. I’m tempted to try one or two shorter pieces, to see how they go, and maybe to have something marketable. Getting a short story published would be a dream.

I wrote 2k words on the last day of February, because it gives me an extra point on the magic spreadsheet, which bumped me up from rank 5 to rank 4 for the month of February. So yes, those words were written quite selfishly.

My story is almost at 50k words, the cutoff for being considered an actual novel. I’ll hit that either tonight or tomorrow, and I’m really looking forward to it.

Rice, I’m doing every day. Not much to say here, other than that levels are getting a lot less frequent. It helps, every morning, knowing that even if I don’t get anything else done during the day (HA HA HA HA HA. I wish I could do that, for one day), I’ve done something that causes net good in the world. It’s a good feeling.

I’m signing off now. I have to write two essays for my government test tomorrow morning. Even though I need a 20 on this test, if I make 100s on the rest (I made 103 on the first one.), I feel like getting anything under 90 is failing. I don’t know why I do this to myself, sometimes.
