The quiet, task oriented isolation of studying by myself is rotting my brain. I have been housesitting for the peace and quiet for over a week now but I'm not really the quiet type. There's something about too much coffee, stress, and alone time that doesn't agree with me. I find my mind wandering to some awful remark I made five years ago and wiggling and pondering it like a rubik cube. I can't wait for this to be over.
