Meanwhile, I still want to know what happened to the person I wanted to be as a kid... Nowhere near as uptight, more calm, collected. Definitely wittier, and would laugh off the coursework that I'm doing now. (Of course, when I was really young, I figured I'd be living in the dorms at college, crank through a BA in 3 1/2 years instead of 14, etc.) I'm getting closer, but nowhere near close enough.
I'm thinking that being in bed at 11 (and TV off at 12 at the latest) is a good idea I need to keep following for Work / School nights. I'm more awake and feeling more collected today than normal. Maybe it's all just a lack of sleep?
