Official spring break report for Saturday, March 25


Quote for the day:
"You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."
--Max Ehrmann, Desiderata (excerpt)

Sleep: 7.0 hours. Not bad.

Weather: Rainy and dark. Comforting, in a way.

Stupid Stories: This morning I knocked myself out to finish a 188-page course packet (above) for next term’s WR 121 class. In PSU-ese, a course packet is a compilation of class assignments, readings, etc., that students buy in addition to—or, in my case, instead of—a textbook. The teacher puts the thing together, the print shop copies and binds it, and the students buy it and haul it to class. Anyway, I loaded up my packet-to-be and got into the car and drove to the print shop on PSU campus. And found the print shop closed. Sigh. Never even occuured to me that it wouldn’t be open.

Fun: Driving back from PSU. Also did the “Music Meme” that follows. (Have fun with it!)

Chores: Did laundry, put up the futon and got my sanctum sanctorum back to normal from Erin’s visit, went through piles of paper from last term and put most of it into the recycling bin. Finished and submitted a ‘Cosmology’ book proposal for New Page—have been trying to find time to finish this for three months.

Food Events: Grande nonfat latté at Starbucks, while driving back from PSU.

The World: Found out that a fellow GA—who shall go by the name of ‘Spine’—wrote a letter to the ed in today’s Oregonian, shredding the much-hated David Reinhard. As Spine would say, Ba-DUM!

Dog: Tired, barked at the crows once, when they came for peanuts.

Ummmm, the Chopin Prelude #13 is very slow, sad, and reflective. So... no, I can't explain it. And I think that is a good thing.
