Well, happy New Year, for real this time.
I know I still have a few days of break left, but I’m already experiencing weird anxiety about school starting again, namely in the form of dreams.
I hate anxiety dreams. They ruin everything. Or at least the few moments after I wake up. And I guess these dreams are no big deal, as they’re not nightmares from which I wake up truly upset or feeling threatened or at risk. BUT THEY’RE REALLY DAMN ANNOYING. Because when you play a recital, and then have dreams about playing a recital for AT LEAST a month following said recital, it’s hard to feel like you’re really done. Same goes with school. Where is my ACTUAL winter break?? Weird class and social situations follow me into my dreams, as well as recitals. And, while I really don’t want to give the impression that I’m not happy in school or that I’m not enjoying my time there (because those two things are untrue — school mainly just stresses me out), Eastman actually reminds me a lot of junior high school. And I thought I was done with that. So when my dreams not only take me into school during a time in which I shouldn’t be there, but take me even further back into junior high school territory, I get cranky. CRANKY.
So anyway. Dreams.
In the meantime, though, I’ve been able to see a lot of my favorite people and get some sleep here and there and freeze my arse off in the cold. So all in all, a successful break.
And not to set myself up for failure or anything, but I have some technical resolutions to share. I am also going to resolve to…
Master WordPress code (including php, I suppose)
Switch this blog over to WordPress and my official domain
Design more layouts, for “fun”
Come up with a good photo-editing workflow
I don’t think I’d need to switch this layout over to WordPress, except as it would happen, WordPress is pretty damn awesome, or so I’m discovering. In terms of plug-ins and automated-ness and whatnot.
