I'm sure it's quite apparent that I've been bogged down at work lately. I've been working on Saturdays, checking in on Sundays, and still trying to live a somewhat normal life, which has been hard. Generally, the first thing to go is sleep. I haven't slept much in the past few weeks, and the delirium finally hit me around Tuesday or Wednesday. I've been in a haze, pretty much fighting to get my brain into work and functioning.

Trying to force a sleepy brain into productiveness is terrible- it's like herding a group of kittens. Kittens that are half hyena and half Tasmanian devil.

Despite my complete lack of brain cells, I had to post today because of these:

Aren't these just amazing? They look like nubbly little pencil bits, the pencils that are just thrown about, picked up when needed, abused, and treated badly. Dalton Ghetti has managed to transform these afterthoughts into beautiful, delicate, lovely little things.

I really appreciate and love art like this.

My parents are now both in Korea, and though I already live far away from them, I somehow miss them more now that they are thousands of miles away, rather than merely hundreds.

I am fighting to get over this bout of melancholy and back into some semblance of contentment. It's a losing battle, so far. At least this means that I have nowhere to go but up... I think?
