Toiling upward in the night...

Yay. It's finished! After putting the stupid thing off, I actually sat down and wrote my midterm. It's even halfway decent. Granted, it took a good five hours, but at least I didn't wait until this afternoon to do it.
I've discovered that I really like being awake in the wee hours of the morning. I was able to sit down and just crank it out. I got through the first two essays in three hours, which for me is a miracle. The third one took longer because I couldn't decide which one to pick, but I eventually chose the image one and made it up as I went. It would have helped if I hadn't slept through the spy movie, but I think I got enough of the idead. Thank you, Jen for that wonderful little diagram. I think I burned all of Carter's stuff after I graduated.
I think I may have frostbite on my hands. It's got to be forty degrees in the computer room. Though at least I can't fall asleep. I think part of the reason the essays were easy to write was that I came to work to write them. THe cold, combined with the nice bright light and background noise of the Doc made me kind of focus. At home, it was dark and very, very quiet, and all I wanted to do was go back to sleep. Or admire the nice, clean kitchen. I am now more deeply in Jen's debt :)
BTW, the answer to that little puzzle is M. The sequence is the planets running backward, so the next logical letter is m for Mercury.
Well, the sun's up and I should go home if I want to be lucid for orchestra. Later.

The heights of men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
