I’m down to one assignment left this semester, which is great because this week was pretty rough, deadline wise, and a huge week at work so I’ve been bouncing back and forth between diphenhydramine to get me to sleep and five hour energy to perk me up enough to get through all my work plus eating like shit and it’s sort of made me weird and twitchy. Or rather, more weird and twitchy. It’s like having a coffee addiction but without the coffee. I think I need to detox this weekend. Anyone have some recommendations for that? Tell me later, right now I have to duct tape my leg down so I stop bouncing my knee compulsively, here’s your Thursday night TV:

“Bones” on Fox
