What I am doing: reading blogs.
What I should be doing: Writing a review of Uncle God's Country.
What I would like to be doing: Buying artisan bread and gin.
What I am kinda doing: Wondering how on earth I'm supposed to start another research project right now.
What I am not doing: Thinking about how I killed one of my plants; admiring how my room looks like a bomb went off (books, notecards and Puffs tissues being the shrapnel of my world); pondering how I would really, really like some crusty bread slathered in butter with a gimlet on the side; lamenting the fact that I just can't quit flared jeans; checking my email for the eighteenth time today; mournfully inspecting a syllabus; considering skipping class; plotting my escape from Utah; placating all those thoughts by finding my keys and going to Whole Foods.
