Free(Cell) Time

So big news today! Bum bum bum...
My win percentage at Freecell is up to 76%! Yay!
Yes, yes I know, not really something to be this excited about, but I think it just goes to show how perseverance and calm, rationale analysis can overcome.
Since graduation (June 13th) I've fallen into a well of boredom, a very deep, damp, dark well. It's all very strange, not having this paper or that group project or midterm to consume my time. Yes, I do work, but 8 hours out of my day is nothing! Then there are my days off... a whole DAY with nothing, absolutely nothing to do? Usually if I was doing nothing I could at least be worrying about the homework I knew I could be doing... strange indeed... I really must find out what people do in their days off.
Anyway, so back to Freecell, I've gotten really good for the past few weeks, but my win percentage was destroyed from my first year of play. So I reset it yesterday and I've won 10 of 13 games. Nice, I know.
I haven't gotten much further in Airs Above the Ground, it's still a bit slow. Hopefully it picks up! Now I'm off the "watch" Twilight while playing FreeCell. The movie is a bit cheesy and adolescent (like the book), but the soundtrack is actually very lovely and I think Robert Pattinson has a soothing voice, so it's become my go to movie to turn on when I'm doing something else.

  1. Airs Above the Ground isn't the normal sort of book I read but I have to say that when I DID read it, I loved it!

  2. Btw, for some unknown technical reason my little picture doesn't show up in the Followers list now... It's not just that I'm too lazy to have one :0)

  3. Ah...I can give you some things to do on your days off! Oops, for a minute I forgot that you are young and unencumbered by children and overwhelming domesticity...so for goodness sake: enjoy yourself. Take time to observe everything and everyone around you and sock it away for later when you write a story it will sink right into!

    These days are precious, take a minute and just pat yourself on the back for all the hard work it took just to get here: to get to that wonderful day off!
