Rare Spate of Productivity

April 15th, 2002 - 3:23 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

What was I doing not too long ago? Guess. Oh, come on...guess. You'll never guess. I was...

CLEANING!

Yes, that's right. I was actually cleaning. Not only that, but I did it without anybody putting a gun to my head. I dusted a bit and cleaned the bathroom/sink. In addition to the dishes and laundry I did fairly recently, this means that I've done almost all the cleaning possible lately except for vacuuming. That's a rather frightening thought. I have no idea why I felt compelled to do those things. Well, other than the necessity. There wasn't a real necessity for dusting and cleaning the bathroom though. So the result is I did it because I felt like it? Ick. The sense of novelty and accomplishment is rather odd though. Not only did I clean, but I cooked, went grocery shopping, did some of my reading for tomorrow (when I finish it, that shall be the end of the reading I have to do for that class), and I finished my reading for another class for the rest of the semester. I have been remarkably busy. Oh, and I even have plans to perhaps finish writing part four of one of my stories. And probably hop in the shower. All of this pleases me.

I still have other things to do this week though. I've two papers to write for this week, one for Tuesday and one for Friday. Also, I have a novel to read in French, and some various stories to read for another class. I think that's about it though. Oddly enough. The strangest thought for me is that in about 4? days I shall be a senior. There's even a celebration and everything on Friday to commemorate the occasion. I might even go if I'm not too busy writing that paper. It's a very odd feeling. We'll see how I feel about it in the near future when it sinks in. For now, I think I shall go be productive in other ways. Especially since it's about 15 minutes before 5 am now. I have other things I should do. I'm having a rare spate of productivity after all.

hebetude (n. HEH-buh-tood)

: lethargy, dullness

The dullness of hebetude tends to lean toward mental dullness, often marked by laziness or torpor. As such, it was a good word for one Queenslander correspondent, who wrote in a letter to the editor of the _Weekend Australian_ of "an epidemic of hebetude among young people who . . . are placing too great a reliance on electronic devices to do their thinking and remembering." Hebetude comes from Late Latin hebetudo, which means pretty much the same thing as our word. It is also closely related to the Latin word for dull -- hebes, which has extended meanings such as obtuse, doltish, and stupid. Other hebe- words in English include hebetudinous (marked by hebetude) and hebetate (to make dull).
