I’m coping by:

drinking this martini

texting all my friends every five seconds or so

asking my children if they are nervous? and having them ask me back why I keep asking them that? and then yelling because of the MIDTERMS! and having them reply that they’re hungry.

listening to Aidy explain the plotline and characters of the show “Shimmer and Shine” and asking follow-up questions

Halloween candy

another, different bag I found of Halloween candy

trying to work for 30 seconds then giving up and sending more texts, checking Twitter

chastising myself for above but then deciding WHATEVER

taking dog to dog “camp” and talking to all the attendees (who are…dogs)

finishing martini, contemplating turning off all media, reading, going to sleep (probably with Halloween candy though)
