That time when all things spiral inward to one due date...  
10 jobs to apply for, 8 post doc applications due, chapter rewrites required, book reports, an article submission deadline, the world feels like one of those swirling vortexes with a black hole at the center that eats all light (that is, of course, October 1, my first due date). Then, if I'm lucky, I get sucked through the whole and come out the wormhole on the other side.

Of course there's also half a dozen meetings between now and then on campus until 9 pm that I'm due to go to, so the educationally social is coming along hand in hand with the academic. Then there's things like friends. Why am I not a hermit?

Kidding. Mostly. I like people. I like my friends. I like them so much I actually am throwing a party for my birthday that will wine and dine them. And things keep arriving from amazon to help with the party. It's pretty cool.

but wow, i kind of am loving and fearing the next two weeks. It's like how I imagine stepping through a stargate feels - anticipation mixed with fear until you arrive safely on the other side.

Such a familiar feeling. I have just been reviewing the list of things I *need* to do today. Yikes!
Good luck. It will all come good. (I keep telling myself that *g*)

why is it those lists are always like ridiculously long? good luck to you too - hopefully by this point you got stuff off your list too? (and yep, I keep telling myself that too - if both of us say it, it must be true right!?)
