So, academic life got real hard, real fast (HA!). There's an ultimatum over my head with catastrophic potential consequences. It's only until 10 minutes ago that I realized that I hadn't logged in here for this whole week, except for a few minutes here and there to update my drafts (transcribed directly from my handwritten notes, that's how much I'm hating writing in a keyboard right now).

So, hand muscles cramped, stress at a maximum, back hurts, sleep schedule is out the window and I'm back to writing for pleasure with an old pencil.

Back in December I thought I was in a hurry. Now I know better: writing and being here is—for the time being—an indirect measure of how well my life actually is. I'll be back before ReQuest2020 ends
