About Me

O satisfy us in

the morning with

Your lovingkindness,

That we may sing

for joy and be glad

all our days.

Psalm 90:14

Quick click: This day resembles the ones before in its general ineffectiveness, productively speaking, and its largescale focus on planning. Justin's health continues improving from yesterday, though slowly. God is good.

Tonight's feature: I can't think of any good features these days. I'll pick a short one. I find that Europeans tend to have more lightswitches than I expect, or at least more widely distributed, but fewer outlets, at least in the places where I spend the most time. This talk of light switches reminds me that many bathroom stalls have their own lights, which I find interesting.

For the past three days, I have felt generally ineffective and unproductive. Much of our time has been taken up with trying to make decisions and discussing things for travel. The problem with this is that it's ongoing and relatively urgent. That means it's very difficult to start work (work which I don't want to do and which requires concentration) because I am inevitable interrupted and can justify not getting back to it. Also, the work environment in the Casa, where I have internet access and where class is and where the meals are served and where I have to be to show myself concerned with spending time with the group, is not one conducive to work. The most convenient room for working is probably the most trafficked room in the house.

However, I am glad about some stuff: the trip to Paris has just been planned, nearing 24 hours before we embark on it. Justin feels better. My paper originally due yesterday has eventually been moved back so it's due Tuesday. I got a letter from Mema today. I was able to stay awake and participate in class today. I got a load of laundry done. Wow. Well, goodbye everyone. I love you and miss you and will be thankful to be with you again. :) Be careful.
