Can’t focus. Must drink coffee.

I almost began this post with “I can’t even explain how much coffee I’ll need this week.” But then I realized — hello, I’m a writer. I’m supposed to be able to explain the ridiculous amount of coffee I’ll be drinking this week to keep me focused.

See, here’s the thing: I’m going home Friday for the first time since Labor Day and am extremely restless. Don’t get me wrong, I love East Lansing and being off at school, but sometimes you just need to get out of East Lansing.

But seriously, how awesome is being home?! I can sleep in my own bed and won’t have to worry about climbing out of my loft if I have to pee in the middle of the night. I can do my laundry without paying $2 a load. I can drink the coffee my mom makes at breakfast. (Which is actually just Kroger coffee, but it’s more special because she makes it.)

I talked to my dad on the phone last night, and I think this picture accurately shows how excited we both are:

Annie and dadMy dad loves me. Really.

So, because I’m so excited to go home on Friday, I’m having some trouble focusing on school. Which is an issue, considering I have a microeconomics midterm Wednesday that I’d  kind of like to pass.

Goal: Study all night and all day tomorrow, stay focused Wednesday night and Thursday so I won’t have too much to do this weekend, try not to annoy the crap out of my roommate.

Method: Drink lots of coffee, stay off Facebook. This is going to be an interesting week.

Happy Monday!
