The house is silent except for the whir of the fan on the table and the clicking of the keyboard. Textbooks and papers litter the floor, the tables and every available surface, making everything seem as if a cyclone came and whippped through the room.
The stack of books I have read this year can rival the leaning Tower of Pisa, as I hapharzardly stack them one on top of the other. The more important books needed for my assignments are thrown and buried somewhere else.
I keep telling myself that I should get down to doing the bloody assignments because time is ticking and the whole "Time and tide waits for no man" shite... but here I sit typing things that pass through my mind, anything except the assignments and looming deadlines. The fear will invariably hit me in the face soon...... I hope......
But for now, I can say that I am content and happy (this is if you put aside the stupid assignments and the darn close deadlines for work that I have!). The void is still there within me, a gaping black and seemingly unendless emptiness... but I don't really feel it anymore. The days strecth luxuriously for me in the mornings and though sometimes it is a pain to wake up and get my ass of to college, various people have helped make it less painful by offering me lunch and company after classes and rides to and from college - bless you all.
I reckon I will go now and play some ZUMA which I have abandoned these couple of days. Then I will perhaps read a book, talk to my mother over dinner and watch "Charmed" with her, maybe get some Baskins Robbins since it is the 31st of May and then perhaps I will sit and tackle the mess of assignments that I have.
Life is alright at the moment from where I stand. Sure it always could do better, perhaps a nicer gleam and shine to it, but I am content and happy, something I haven't been in awhile and I am thankful for that (thanks you God!).
