// I was waiting on a different story //
At 7:40am the day after Spring Break, campus is quiet. It was kinda nice to be in the office while everyone was prepping for class, though. And it was actually useful for me to have been there before the 8:40 class (mostly for FUH). It was a really low-stress day, which was honestly to be expected, but I think I've been basically bracing myself for the entirety of the six weeks. (Not really relatedly, my day was not improved by another instance of passive-aggressive. Sigh.) Also, why do I feel like the categories of things I'm avoiding at work is expanding? Borderline depression = not on.
When he was leaving for the day, FUH exuberantly asked if I was gonna come to one of his classes, and I said, "Sure. Which one?" As he started to think through the list, he realized that he actually needs me to come to both sessions of class (8:40 and 10:20) next Tuesday. Which I'm happy to do, though given the below paragraph it may be a little interesting (I'm considering going to the gym at 4pm that day, because I don't think getting up early that day is gonna happen).muskratjamboree
is THIS weekend. (This occurred to me when I was going to bed last night and reflecting on the plans I'd made that day for the coming week.) Which means I will be stupid falling over tired on (Palm) Sunday. I may have to tell Ross that I'm gonna need to schedule a nap and we can talk about salvation after Easter.
I went to "Coriolanus Conversations: The Politics of Compromise"
(writeup not happening tonight) and was exchanging comments with the people sitting next to me and afterward the guy next to me and I kept talking as we headed upstairs to dessert. We had exchanged names and talked about a variety of things, and then someone
came over and started talking about LiveJournal and I said, "Oh, you're ron_newman
." I feel like I'm now two degrees away from ALL of davis_square
Best line of the night: We were talking about ASP
, which led to talking about Theatre@First
, which led to talking about the churches along College Ave. Later, I mentioned something about Temple Shalom Medford
, and Ron said, "Are you Jewish, too?" (In later conversation, I learned that in the house next to that bizarre building -- former Masonic Temple, says Ron [edit: currently Museum of Modern Renaissance home/studio
, see also Boston.com article
/edit] -- on College Ave. near Powder House Park is Havurat Shalom

Five good things about today:
1. pre-class morning being useful and not stressful
2. chatting with some folks
3. Nutella&banana&almonds crepe at Mr. Crepe
4. "Coriolanus Conversations: The Politics of Compromise"
5. conversation thereafter
Three things I did well today:
1. I got up with my alarm, did my requisite morning stuff, and got into the office before 8am (yes, it really is a 45-minute commute).
2. I went to the ( gymCollapse )
3. I made the CWM blogpost from Sunday's Lenten Vision and Discernment session.
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. remembering to make the CWM deposit after work (which I totally forgot today)
2. going to bed early-er Current Mood: possibly dessert disagreed with me
