Class Rings

Just finished up my Fall 2010 term at PSU and I'm pretty excited to be getting my Bachelors of Arts in six months. So excited that I haven't slept and instead spent the night (after finishing submitting my last final) going through requirements for the graduation application, commencement ceremony details, and designing my class ring on the Jostens website. I guess you could say I can get a little obsessive.

It's kind of a big deal. I put a lot of thought into all the details. I thought maybe I'd share them with people -- never mind how incoherent it may all end up being or how confused people who do not know much about me and my history will find themselves. So please forgive me ahead of time, and feel free to chalk all of this up to a result of not getting enough sleep.

HappyLight Energy Lamp

I don't know if it's some sort of sign of desperation or what, but the other day my parents took a suggestion my doctor has made several times in the past to buy me a lamp that simulates natural light. I guess people with seasonal affective disorder (with the convenient acronym SAD) find it helpful.

I've been using it for an hour or two each day -- can't say that I'm noticing anything, but it's hard to tell since I've been sick and have needed a lot of rest. It's pretty fucking bright, though. It must do something, I guess. Plus, it's called a HappyLight. I mean, come on.

I dunno. We'll see how it goes.
