Petty venting )

Rainy, drizzly, miserable day today. Upside: The snow is gone, and my hair looks awesome. Okay, good enough.

Been listening to an audiobook of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban lately. It's reminding me that I used to vaguely ship Lupin/Snape (I just found their interaction very interesting...) I think I tried to write some fic of that, which was terrible, and was never posted anywhere because I never finished it. The files are all long gone by now. Ahh, memories.

You know, it's so frustrating to look at your schedule, and then look at the time available to you, and find that there's no possible way you can stuff everything in. I need a time-turner, man. If nothing else, I'd be able to take a good long nap.

For the past couple of days I've been trying to write poetry in a very restricted format, and I'm finding it very challenging. Three stanzas, four lines per stanza, four words per line, one syllable per word. More-or-less inspired by some of the stuff in the Book of Songs. But while this form is suited to Chinese poetry, it's maddeningly difficult and almost impossible in English (to the surprise of absolutely no one) especially if the person writing it doesn't usually play with such restrictions... I'm afraid the result is pretty mediocre so far. xD But the point is more in the exercise than the result, I guess. It's kind of fun in its own way.

Nnnnot much else to say right now. I'm only a few days into this altered shift, and I'm already exhausted.
