Attempting Relaxation

so I FINALLY finished the last of my courses. Packing 4 full-credit courses (five if you count the half semester of super braniac physics i took) when you work full time into a time span just shy of a year is no party. But, thankfully, everything has been completed successfully.

But now that I'm not spending my 6-7 "free" after work hours studying, I don't quite know what to do with myself....or all this time! Since one of my "post-school" goals (see here) was to catch up with friends, I had dinner scheduled with someone almost every night this week.

So after hitting up the Greek Table last night, I set out on a quick run which turned into 40-minutes. When I got back, my attempt at relaxation looked something like this:
7:50 pm Shower
8:20 pm Sit on the couch and watch tv
8:23 pm Contemplate reading
8:27 pm Decide against reading and put a load of laundry in the wash
8:40 pm Hang up all the "reject" outfits from the past two days that were now littering my bedroom floor
9:00 pm Unload the dishwasher and clorox the ktichen counters (why not?)
9:25 pm Put the laundry in the dryer and decide to do a load of towels
9:40 pm Watch TV
9:47 pm Decide I should do a few crunches while I watch TV
10:00 pm Contemplate if vacuuming at 10pm will disturb my neighbors. Decide that it might and that I don't want to be "that" neighbor
10:05 pm Turn on Bettheny Getting Married which I've been waiting to watch all day
10: 30 pm Fall asleep on the couch halfway through Bettheny Getting Married. Awesome.

Apparently I fail at relaxation. Don't know if that's a good thing or not. But I'm going to work on least once in awhile!
