A moment of peace?

What can I say? I'm not good for conversation lately. Usually I just say "I'm tired" or I stare off into the emptiness and say "wha?" The past couple of weeks have been hectic and the upcoming ones are shaping up to be more of the same.

I haven't blogged out of sheer exhaustion. That and my brain is too muddled to write. I think I booked myself to the point of insanity, what with all these associations, committees, meetings, responsibilites. But I'm not going to give up. I know I can do this! Yar!

Another reason why life has been hectic lately is an incident involving my grandfather. He took quite a tumble and fractured his shoulder, and now we have to take care of him and take him to the doctors and such. Since we're the only family he has over here (correction: the only family who cares), we have to take care of him. He's been even more depressed since he fell. He feels useless and incapacitated. Poor gramps.

As I reread this post I realize that it doesn't sound like me at all. It's so automatic and void of expression, but I guess that's how I feel. Yesterday I was just so exhausted. I came close to passing out several times. That, and a cold keeps trying to take me down. But I am armed with my trusty vitamins and garlic pills. Oh, and Ricola.

Thankfully, there is only six weeks of class left. Only six weeks of class, commitments, meetings, flyers, responsibilities. I wonder, at the end, who really gives a shit about everything one does? But then I think, I give a shit. And it matters to people that I do.

I have to work on a presentation for my wednesday class, I guess this is some sort of reminder note for myself.

Oh well, I'll stop blogging now. Sorry everyone for not being very active in commmenting in your blogs, but I read them! I just don't have the capacity to write a clever comment. :/

Take care, everyone!
