Holy Ibn Gvirol, Batman!
This shiz is crazy. I am loving Ulpan. I’m not the best student, I’m not the worst student. But I am doing well, and I am learning.
But after four days of 4.5 hours sleep, 5 hours of school + 8 hours work each day (in a 2-man startup nonprofit), and squeezing in everything else, I really started to feel it this morning.
What’s “everything else?” Um, I dunno, how about training for a frigging marathon Friday? And, making time to watch “24,” “American Idol,” and “Lost.” (I can sacrifice “The Hills” and “In Treatment.” Can’t believe I mentioned both of those shows in same sentence, though.) Plus, these posts don’t write themselves, you know. Also, friends, AA, Skyping family & friends at home, reading Perez, returning Facebook emails, dating. Just not possible to do it all.
Plus, b/t the lack of sleep, ubiquitous smokers in Israel, and sun exposure, I’m worried about wrinkles.
Alright, gotta watch the Idol kids sing disco tunes in bed w/ this laptop. Teeth already brushed & flossed and face washed so I can go lights out as soon as ep is over. Priorities.
P.S. Couldn’t decide b/t headline I used and “Burning the Candle at Both Ends,” so hope you’re not too tripped out by disconnect b/t headine and image.
