[none] for tonightHello. Now, finally on today's blog. I'm always behind, it seems.
Quick pick: Today was... paperfull. I just turned it in, and I was so mushy in my brain. I need to start those things earlier. Today was also beautiful. It was so beautiful and breezy and fresh this morning--warmest morning yet. Yay, yay!!! Also, I got a letter mailed to Mema finally. w00t!
Wow. I feel so disorganized. I can't even write.
Tonight's feature: I don't think I'll have a feature for tonight. I can't think of a good one. Don't worry, it'll be back soon.
Today... today I got up very late, but made it out the door on time; I just missed a vital part of my morning, that being my quiet time. I was nevertheless in a state of outstanding joy and thankfulness on seeing the beauty and freshness and relative warmth of the morning. I zoned out many times in political science class, failing to see the importance or relevance to my life of some aspects of the Italian parliament. The history was interesting, though. I think the Italian government system is a curious study of what happens when grown-ups don't do what they ought to do to deal with problems. (Yes, I am twenty-one now. It doesn't feel "grown-up.") During the break I ran to the mailbox and dropped off my letter to Mema. On the way I passed a funeral procession--which feels strange, since Riva is such a small town and this is the second I've seen. Also, I don't normally hurry through walking funeral processions on small errands. I felt kind of bad. But I did say buon giorno to many people and they were all very nice and said it back. I liked them. :) Later in the day Stevie and I worked on laundry, which I have to say I'm very excited about, as I really need some of that stuff tomorrow! Then I worked off and on on my paper all afternoon. It really wasn't any fun. My brain turned off slowly as I got toward my fourth topic of discussion, so it's shorter and less supported than the third, and so on and so forth. Also, I have a bunch of stuff I ought to do for English class and for getting ready for the trip and just being a person, but I don't have time for all of it by tomorrow. I am, however, going to go call Rebecca tonight, which is an important personal detail that I've been needing to do for some time. And now I shall go. Oh, my personal learning. I guess I learned about the effects of being young and naive and desiring to fit in and being made fun of for being naive and having a good attitude. It can result in turning cynical and crusty at a deep level. I don't think about that much because I think that who you are is much more than what happens to you. You decide how you're going to be about it. But I do see that the things that happen to you do affect you. I don't know how much they need to or should. Sigh. Well, my paper is done, and God is good. The day was warm, and I have a nice bed to go to in a little while. I pray I have a great talk with Bec. Good night, all.
