Friday Night Agenda

Whole evening: Stay off the internet as to ensure that I get work done.
Whole evening: Not freeze to death.
Whole evening: Not stress about the end of the semester, which is nigh.
Potentially the whole evening: Enjoy as many of Beethoven's 9 symphonies as possible before collapsing of exhaustion.

Chronology of the other items on the agenda:
Make something to eat for dinner.
Read.
Work on writing paper.
Read.
Self caffeinate.
Read.
Write more.
Sleep... eventually.

LATER, AT 2:30 AM SATURDAY: I listened to the nine symphonies in their entirety.

I really didn't need to worry about being cold — the powers that be over the thermostat are confusing my building with a sauna, and there's nothing I can do about it at this hour. I'm nearing the point of collapse. The new question is this: exhausted though I am, will I be able to sleep well in this truly infernal heat?
