I know that it is coming towards the end of the trimester.. I know this because everything just became ten times harder and I just became twenty times more stressed (not to mention these ideas I keep having of jamming my pen in my eye to avoid the pain of writing another essay)…
from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I’m always amazed at friends who say they try to read at night in bed but always end up falling asleep. I have the opposite problem. If a book is good I can’t go to sleep, and stay up way past my bedtime, hooked on the writing. Is anything better than waking up after a late-night read and diving right back into the plot before you even get out of bed to brush your teeth?
