So much to do. Doing none of it.

Quiz in molecular cell biology in 9ish hours (yes, it's 5am). Homework for computer class due by midnight tonight, paper for health law class due midnight Sunday (though I actually started that one today, OMG). Molecular cell biology test on Monday. Organic lab writeup due Tuesday, as well as pre-lab and actually, you know, doing the lab on Tuesday. Not to mention I didn't go to volunteer at the hospital at all this week--I only need 10 more hours and I have all of April to get them, and it's not like they actually need me around anyway, but I feel bad because technically I'm supposed to be there twice a week, and I've been trying to make it at least once--so that's 6 hours gone on Tuesday and probably no sleep the night before because I leave so early. Then, molecular cell biology lab book I haven't been keeping (no one has, and the teacher knows it, but I'm fairly sure he's a massive dick) due Wednesday. And at 8:30 on Wednesday, an organic chem test that's cumulative over the material I didn't learn for the last test because that's right around when Dad was going in for surgery, the material I didn't retain from the first exam, and the material from the massive amount of classes I haven't made it to these past few weeks because of this sleep failure I've been having.

Like I said, it's now 5:15 and I'm awake. I'm pretty much one of those people who needs to tip over and lie down on the spot when I feel tired or the tiredness passes. My circadian rhythm is still a 30ish hour cycle if left alone, so if I got a solid 6 or 8 hours of sleep (rare, but it happens), it's about 24 hours from the time I woke up that I'm really tired again.

Also, I'm just starting my period, which makes me ruminative and mopey and depression!exhausted, and much more prone to mope and consider suicide than study. Somehow my organic chem teacher has for two semesters now managed to schedule every one of his tests while I'm on my period just to make my life miserable. I should really find drugs for that, especially because I think I might be able to blame hormone stuff for the weird shift in my acne (it's worse, as well as on my back in crazy amounts for the first time ever) and incessant weight gain (yes, I will never stop harping about that because I'm about 5 pounds from officially being "overweight" again even though I've tried everything short of full-blown <400kcal/day uberlow diet to not even lose weight [though by this point, I want to] but just stop gaining it) but me and birth control did not mix well (morning sickness and weight gain).

So idk. Mope. I swore I was going to finish this health law paper tonight and probably do some of my lab too, but nope. I got mopey, and then I trolled LJ to cease aforementioned mopey, and then I updated my extended info and made a playlist on Facebook, and now I'm considering not going to orgo again today and trying to go to sleep now instead. But I'm afraid that because I didn't go to sleep until noonish yesterday, there's no chance I'd get to sleep before the quiz in molecular cell bio at 2 and I'd just be wasting time by trying--unless I'm going on 36h without sleep, it takes a good long while of lying down quietly for me to get to sleep, which majorly eats in to my productive time when I've got this much work to do. Plus, when I'm trying to sleep before some kind of appointment (like aforementioned quiz), I autonomously wake up every 15 minutes to see if it's time to go yet.

Basically, I fail. It doesn't help that I've been very *wants to write fics* lately even if they're not coming out of my head fully formed enough to do anything with, because that's another distraction and one that doesn't come along that often, so I hate to waste these spats of desire to be fannish.

Graaargh. Must pee, but navigating kitten barriers and trying to stop mama!cat from running out of the bathroom as soon as you open the door and then navigating kittens themselves once in the bathroom is a hassle, so I keep putting it off until I have to dance over aforementioned kitten barriers holding my crotch like a 3 year old. Excuse to quit whinging, I think so.

Also, and I know this will probably be seen by nobody that it applies to, but:

DEAR FANDOM.

Hai. My name's Alexandria, and on very rare occasions, I like to record podfic. I can't promise anything good, though I do try to not read in a monotone or anything horrible like that. I'm no [livejournal.com profile] pandarus, and I'm not great at keeping my voices for different characters consistent so I usually don't much bother and just focus on tone of words and such and sort of let the narration hopefully let you know who's who, and I don't have a horridly sexy accent or particularly alluring for whatever reason voice, but I like doing it for fics that entertain me--I'd been reading fics purely for my own benefit to listen to on the schoolbus since middle school, way before I knew of this podfic thing catching on around fandom. Now, since I'm semi-regularly driving 3 hours each way from university to home and back, I listen to other people's all the time, and thus managed to discover [livejournal.com profile] amplificathon, which is gearing up for another round.

Problem is, I don't want to just go around and be all "OMG THIS FIC IS AMAZING. Can I maybe podfic it?" to people I don't know because I'm even shy on the internet. I know, whut.

And since [livejournal.com profile] amplificathon starts soon (the last post-mentioned workload prohibits me from starting until at least Easter weekend, but since all my shit is next week, the week or two after shouldn't be as bad, and the -thon goes through a few weeks after the end of the semester, so I should have lots of time then as well), and I didn't find out about it until right after the 2009 one so this is my first, I'm looking to get some ideas as to what I can podfic. I don't want to have to spend too much time hunting things down and waiting to hear back from the author if it's okay, etc. during the spare moments I could actually be working on reading things (though that'll all obviously have to happen sometimes, this next weekend is the first time I could possibly start reading stuff but I'm OMG JAM PACKED from now until then and won't shouldn't be allowed to find time to scrounge stuff up).

So erm, does anybody have or know of people who have maybe fics they wouldn't mind being read? Preferably in my fandoms, obvs. Maybe a list somewhere of authors that have expressed interest in having stuff read, just to start from? A friend who's casually mentioned in passing conversation how they'd like it if a female from the midwestern United States read their fic aloud for the benefit of the greater internet? Suggestions would be much appreciated. No guarantees I'll get *anything* read, much less if there are suggestions, any of those, but having a place to start makes stuff much less daunting.

Sincerely,
Aforementioned Midwestern-United States' Female Who Needs to Either Get the Fuck Back to Her Homework or Finally Go to Sleep Because It's 9am Goddamn.
