I need a break

Posted by in Not Poker

I also need food…

It’s 5pm [I think it is, computer says so, phone says so, they’ve adjusted for the time; my e-mails keep coming in saying it’s an hour later though] and I am freezing in the 4th floor of one of the UT libraries, studying away for two tests I have tomorrow.

I can’t study at home, because the only place to get peace and quiet there is in my bedroom. And the only place to sit there is on my bed. And since I had a late night last night, and then didn’t sleep well, the probability of me falling asleep – high.

But I need a break. I need to type something other than thoughts on the rational choice model of electoral behavior. Really, you know you’ve been a little too involved in this whole politics thing when while looking for a parking space in downtown Austin to attend a Decemberists show, “Hail to the Chief” is the song going you’re humming.

This past week has been a rough one. I look forward to tomorrow afternoon when I can breathe a little and perhaps pull up a chair to the virtual felt and see if I still remember what the hell I’m doing. If I’ve forgotten a few things, well – that may not be so bad. Sometimes we tend to overthink the things that we know the best and it gets us in trouble. I can certaintly see that being the case with myself, both in poker and in life.

Alright, back to work for me. As always, thanks for putting up with my ramblings. 🙂
