Bizarre limbo state

:note: Morningwood – “Nth Degree”

I need to come up with a project to do for my Flash final. My options are:

  • A 15+ page Flash website for a toy company (Legos, Tinker Toys, Toys R Us, etc.)
  • An interactive Flash “tool,” like an interactive map

I am leaning toward the Flash tool, but I don’t particularly want to do a map. The thought is that the map would display things like street names, landmarks, restaurants, etc., and the user would be able to toggle these views on and off, and possibly be able to click on them for more information. I’m having a hard time coming up with something else to do that is of similar difficulty. Any help? Ooh, just thought about doing a family tree – yay or nay?

Still with the “school” theme, I think I have Senioritis. I’m in this bizarre limbo state where I’m simultaneously terrified of graduation, yet I’m sick of school and just want to be done with it. I’ve been slacking off on my homework (doing the absolute least amount I can to still get by), ignoring school related work unless I’m actually physically in class, and just being restless in general.

I’ve had these intense creative urges in the past week or so, but they all involve hands-on, crafty things like sewing, knitting, embroidery, quilting, etc. I keep having this compulsion to create, but create with my hands instead of the computer and I don’t know how to deal with it. I don’t have any of the supplies (except for knitting, really) and I have other things to do that are much more important. Like homework.

See, when I procrastinate on assignments, I never feel that bad about it because I’m generally doing something else productive. For instance, instead of working on my Flash stuff, I made a new layout. Or instead of writing a paper, I’ll do all the dishes in the kitchen, bake some banana bread, and then do laundry. See? I can’t be that upset about avoiding the homework, because look what else got done! This phenomenon certainly doesn’t motivate me to do more homework, that’s for sure. It’s very frustrating.

Oddly, grades aren’t even motivating me at this point. I just assume I’ll still do well in the class because I generally do well in class. THIS IS SO DUMB. It’s like I’ve just stopped caring about anything school-related. Help.
