I've been thinking about my general desire to write about the things that I've been reading or watching so far this year, and not surprisingly the resolution has yielded a pretty fair amount of writing, but none of it really being writing I need to be doing. As to the quality of my writing, so of it's been pretty good, but more than a little has felt like writing to fill an arbitary requirement. I mean, my arbitrary requirement, but once I've gotten into it, I'm not sure how useful it is to try to write about everything.

If I were to do something like a media blog and I had the time available, maybe it'd be more worthwhile, but, nah. Frankly, I read too much to try to comment substantially on every essay or book I read, or movies I watch.

My stress levels have been really erratic, and I think that a good portion of the issue is sleeping and eating habits. Eating's been tough, because my disbursement hasn't come in yet and, while I have been paid, bills have pretty much ensured that we're waiting to go grocery shopping for a few more days. I've had a difficult time sleeping. Luckily, a lot of that shit is evening out. I'm having a hard time doing lesson plans and my thesis work at the same time, so I'm just dropping everything out of my to-do list that isn't life-required or school related. (Again.) With the exception of a Pathfinder game, actually. Sessions are an hour out from where I live and I'm usually exhausted by the time the game closes, but I'm glad to be playing in a game.

I'm not sure what to do with some of the stuff I've already written. Stuff like my notes on Ex Machina I might develop further, like I've done with stuff I've written about Homestuck or Pattern Recognition. The rest I'll probably just dump into a digital wastecan.
