It's been so sunny in Halifax that we've all forgotten what it can really be like in the spring.

3500 words later, I’m still feeling a little drained.
Well, the current drained feeling probably has more to do with staying out late on a Sunday night, which, incidentally, is a stupid night to party. I knew that. It’s obvious. But it has never been more obvious to me than right now.
After a night of shenanigans, which left our host’s house a mess, everyone stumbled out into the night and it feels a lot like we’ve been stumbling ever since then. Over the course of the day, I heard various stories of headaches and confusion (“someone from that party called me at 2am, and didn’t know who he was talking to or why he called”), while I buckled down to polish my essay to a finish. I handed it in at four and felt great.
Felt great until five minutes after I handed it in. I stopped into the KSU office to say hello to a friend, laid down on the couch, and didn’t get up for two hours. Something about the last minute paper mode or adrenaline or whatever, but I didn’t feel it until 4 this afternoon. Then it was brutal.
Luckily, the universe offered me four hours of last minute work and a perfect excuse not to go crazy tonight. I finish my shift at midnight, and maybe I’ll stop by the bar for a quick drink. Nothing too crazy. Very low key. My foggy heads demands it.

So I did it! I survived! And the paper was done 23 hours before the due time. I am very proud of myself.
In other news, I want to get a little bit more active. Considering I do nothing to get off my butt at the moment, anything would be good. A bunch of my friends are all on a hot yoga kick, which sounds fun. I used to love doing yoga! Moving to a new city and filling my life with new things has crowded it out of my life.
Anyway, I hope all of you have had a lovely weekend. The weather here was beautiful, perfectly befitting the arrival of spring. I managed a couple hours reading outside which working on the paper.
Tonight is the changeover party for the union council, so I'm going to go celebrate finishing my paper.
