I dislike:
- feeling like I'm doing other people's jobs for them
- feeling like I'm not doing a good enough job at my own job
- feeling like I need other people to do my job for me (this one is really mixed because having someone so proactive is awesome and I am so so grateful, but I hate feeling like I'm dumping my work on someone whose job it isn't)

I do enjoy things like Greg joking that he doesn't need everyone in the department's cell phone he just needs mine.

Further commentary on Inaugural words is going to have to wait, but thanks to various people + the internet, have transcript links:
* Rick Warren's invocation: transcript + video (boston.com)
* Elizabeth Alexander's inaugural poem (NYT)
* Obama's Inaugural Address (AP)
* Rev. Joseph E. Lowery's invocation (blog.suntimes.com).

Walking home from work, there was snow falling intermittently.

Do not be afraid, I am with you
I have called you each by name
Come and follow Me
I will bring you home
I love you and you are mine

Five good things about today:
1. Surprise bonus Allie at the T this morning.
2. Ian brought me a chocolate chip cookie from the FacCommons.
3. Terry called me -- while I was at work, which was somewhat awkward, especially as someone sits behind me, but points for promptly returning my call (I left a voicemail last night).
4. Apparently I am getting overtime for my work in SF.
5. "Free Hugs" girls outside Harvard T when I was going home.

Three things I did well today:
1. [gym] 45min treadmill (4.3mph, 1.5incline)
2. I remembered to pick up milk on my way home.
3. I paid bills.

Two things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
["anything that you're looking forward to, that means you're facing tomorrow with joy, not trepidation," as Ari says]
1. Rest and Bread.
2. Getting to go home after service (because class is over).
