Hm. I just realised that many of the things I did today are an effort to please my parents when they come for family day. I (marginally) picked up my room, I finally put all my books away, I'm doing my laundry, and I put fresh sheets on my bed. I wonder how long I would have continued to procrastinate if it weren't for the imminent embarassment by my parents. Odd.

On a side note, I have waaaaaaaaay too many books for a college student in such a tiny room. I finally unpacked them all: they fill the two shelves of the bookshelf, as well as underneath and half of the top. I also have half a dozen above my desk, for reference; and there's a pile of fiction on my windowsill (that's my to-read pile). And there's a couple other textbooks and reference books floating around. Sheesh! I'm really going to hate packing them all up again this summer.. I'll probably leave them packed up wherever I move to in Worcester, there's just not ROOM for them anywhere, especially if I don't have a bookshelf.

I think I'm mostly recovered from my illness now. I'm still coughing a lot, but at least I'm functioning like a normal person again. And amazingly, I don't feel pressed to get work done. Maybe it's just my perception, but it just doesn't feel like I have too much to do. Of course, I'm still putting a good bit of it off til tomorrow. I need to stop procrastinating so much.. and I also need to put a lot more time into my MQP. That's one thing that is suffering a bit from my illness.

It's way too hot out. I am SO glad that it's supposed to cool down tomorrow!
