Whenever I get down into the trenches of studying for exams, my brain focuses on two things: studying, and taking a break from studying to do something fun. To the exclusion of pretty much all else. Case in point:
Today after I got home from work, I was surprised to find that, in my absent-mindedness in preparing for work, I had left a half-full coffee cup beside my bathroom sink, another half-full coffee cup by my textbooks, my toothbrush neark the kitchen sink, and my housecoat was in a pile in front of my fridge. I guess my brain needs all the synapses it has to organize the muscles and joints of the face and larynx for to-morrow. Let's hope it works.
