Jacqueline Passey

Lack of Time, Literally

For whatever reason, I’ve had my hand pretty full since finals ended on Tuesday around 9:38am. One of the things that sucks so much about finals is that it’s pretty much just a balls to wall studying extravaganza. Time and space separate and you ignore one whilst living in the other. Having no sense of time is somewhat liberating. I remember a talking with Jacqueline Passey just over a year ago about her experiences in Costa Rica. One of the things she said was very interesting: Americans typically think of time in 5 minutes units; Costa Ricans use 30 minute increments. To be able to forgo all units of time was interesting. All I really knew was that I had an exam in so many hours and minutes and seconds. But that didn’t translate into a time of day for me.

I’ve been desperately trying to get back onto normal time so that I can function normally again. Tuesday night I went to the Denver Botanical Garden with Dave, Laura, Manya, and company to see the 18th Annual Blossoms of Light. It was good to get out of Golden. I took my camera and Matt’s tripod and had some fun taking pictures too.

Went telemarking on Wednesday with Katie and Trevor up at Winter Park. That’s 4 days of skiing this year so far. Hung out with Bailey at the Mall for a while.

And then we all know what happened last night.
