Hi. I'm Akabeko McCluretotem. You might remember me from such blogs as "red cow rise."
I won't apologize for my impromptu break, partially because people hate that and partially because I won't apologize for doing what I like with my interbutt space.
The short version is that school kicked my ass, which aggravated my horrible tendency to withdraw and avoid everything, and despite this blog being high on my "do not neglect" list, it isn't quite up there with things like "tuna sandwich" and "sleep."
The long version is that not only am I extremely lazy, but when I am procrastinating on something necessary, I will punish myself by not allowing myself to enjoy any other activities. The frustrating problem is that this doesn't usually encourage me to actually confront whatever project it is that I'm avoiding. So over winter break I got a touch of the sads heavily influenced by work stress and exam preparation, went into Fun Stuff hibernation, and then went back to school and was promptly destroyed by said exams. After a short breather, it was time to get into finals prep. In my last week of school, I had 10 tests in 13 class periods. To add insult to injury, one teacher gave us as take home test, which is really just a giant "fuck you" to my inability to work effectively at home. Don't you realize I can get on tumblr at home?
So the awkward truth is that I haven't logged into WoW in several weeks, and the withdrawal is making me feel weird about doing so. I mean, I'm on vacation now, so there's no danger of me logging in and neglecting to do something necessary. And having something to get focused on will help, because otherwise my natural inclination is to graze, and food is expensive. What's going on? I don't know! What am I so worried about??? Suck it up, Aka, you have fanfic to write!
That will have to wait for tomorrow because believe it or not I am keeping a bedtime and actually waking up before noon. In the meantime, enjoy this video that I took weeks ago and finally got around to dealing with. PROCRASTINATION HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
