My avatar across the web: a photo of my feet in grey-white socks and brown sandals.

Ben Babcock

I read, write, code, and knit.

I need to stand up to myself!

Gah. I think one of the reasons why I get stressed a lot is because I make too many commitments--especially to myself. I have coding, reading, writing, schoolwork, other obligations, and they all collide and go boom! It doesn't help that I lack time management or prioritizing skills. So I end up devoting all my time to nothing.

Anyway . . . other than the fact that the day needs more hours, things are going well. I got my driver's licence in the mail yesterday. My photo makes me look paler than I normally am, and I look like some sort of serial killer. My neck is way too long.

I need to get some writing done before I head to bed, because even though my priorities are completely scrambled, it feels good to do...
