Not so glamorous Vienna...

Who says humans aren't meant to hibernate? I've slept ten hours or so tonight but could have gone on when the alarm rang & and I'm still tired. Again. Who knows. I'm pretty convinced the bigger part of my brain never woke up at all. Days at work are spent taking books from the shelves, dusting them, cleaning the shelves with wood polish & putting the books back, which may not sound exciting, but, hey, at least it keeps me busy, somewhat focused and from dropping into the deep dark woe-is-me-my-life-is-wasted hole of post-Christmas depression.

So I'm sitting here, livejournal entries to write, emails to write, not two functioning brain-cells in my head and drinking red wine from a water glass because I broke my last wine glass a few days ago. I probably shouldn't add that this is also my last-but-one water-glass? I tend to neglect/ignore this kind of household stuff as long as possible (often longer) because it's simply very much on the bottom of the list of things that are important to me, but a shopping trip might be in order soonish...

Also, and because apparently I'm incapable of sticking with anything for any length of time, I've decided to start learning Russian next semester.

It may not be glamorous, but that picture is both beautiful and evocative.

And we certainly do have the urge to hibernate! This time of year it's all I can do not to come home from work and go right to bed.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! :)

It would probably help if i got at least a glimpse of the sun more often, but this only happened twice when I was biking to work recently, and of course when I leave in the evening it's pitch-dark...

I totally agree about hibernating. I just really don't want to get up or leave the house around this time of the year.

Good luck with starting Russian! I'm taking classes right now as well. It's good to be using my brain for something for a change :) My job isn't the most challenging on that front either...

Thank you! :) I've been taking Spanish classes for the last two semesters, and I don't want to stop learning entirely, but I wanted to try something different and not a romanic language for a change. So it was a toss between Russian and Turkish, but since I've read so many Russian authors recently and really would like to be able to do so in the original language, Russian won...
