American College Dublin, lack of sleep, literary greats, masters, reading, working, writing, writing &reading
This past week has been more than a little busy – between lecturing, trying to find work and my masters I have been trying to find enough hours to sleep – Wednesday night was particularly touch with a 3am bedtime and a 7.30am wake up.
To catch up a little bit on those lost hours and to avoid even darker circles under my eyes, I indulged in a short lie-in this morning. However it was only a short reprieve since my dinning room table still showed the evidence of my late night study session. Piles of printouts and underlined passages the reminders of what is done and still left to do.
But I decided to prolong my relaxation and have enjoyed a morning over cups of tea and the papers, now I need to head out to stock my fridge – its painful emptiness reflected in the grumbles of my tummy.
Once that’s done my bum will deepen the imprints on my dining room chair once more, as I forage through the literary works of some of the worlds great writers, before I turn my own humble attempts to the keyboard and write a few words of my own.
