I just blocked my own mother on instant messenger. If you think that sounds harsh, you obviously missed out on my briefly posted page-long rampage after i finally cut her off. Basically, for as busy as the woman claims to be, she has totally forgotten about the concept of school and has never done anything vaguely extra-curricular, so she just doesn’t seem to grasp the concept of my schedule even though she says “oh, i know, i’m busy too.” Alone-time and friends are just about the only hi-lites of my life right now, and maybe when i’m on co-op i’ll be a bit more cheery about evenings, but at this point i dread even taking a single phone call. Anyhow, i even mentioned that i was in the middle of writing a paper and she kept talking. I mean, god bless her, but if she wants to just jabber at me endlessly she should either get a blog or email me. I mean endless jabber is what blogging and email are for, right?
