There are times that I’d be understandably frustrated that I’m literally surrounded by things that can divert my attention from important schoolwork, but there are also times where I think it’s acceptable to allow myself to be distracted. Last night was definitely one of those times, but on the bright side I feel understandably better now for it. The fact that the book I read was the second Ciaphas Cain omnibus did help a bit though, as the brave yet cowardly commissar’s brand of black humor really eased my spirits a bit.
Still, it’s a temporary balm at most for my anxieties, as this coming week is shaping up to be one of the busiest yet. Part-time work aside, I have to help finalize both the submissions and the designs of the journal that’s supposed to be published for my Professional Editing subject, on top of the already stress-inducing manuscript edit. I foresee a lot of sleepless nights, for sure.
Hmph. I better start digging for contacts to farm journal submissions from.
