I hope today is not such a blah day. Though it is hard to not be blah when it is chilly and drizzly outside. I don’t know how I will ever survive a winter of rain. I need to get one of those dorky looking fenders for my back bike tire so it doesn’t spray all over the back of my clothes. At least my cherished rain coat, the one I carried all through Europe and fawned over, will come in handy.
Here is my plan for the day, please try to contain your excitement:
9:00-10:15 — Go to class
10:15-6:00 — Do homework
6:00-7:00 — Eat dinner at Breakers
7:00-10:00 — Make owl cookies
I know, I know, you were on the edge of your seat weren’t you? And yes, that is correct, I am going to spend eight hours doing homework. I am becoming so Karen-esque. I don’t know if I should credit my new work ethic to true motivation, or simply to fear of failing. My life is boring. I want to go into San Francisco and escape the yuppie clutches of Palo Alto for a day. Maybe I’ll have time this weekend.
Well, I am proud to say that I actually stuck to my plan. And it worked. I got a lot of homework done, and made 75 owl cookies for dessert tomorrow night. They came out well.
While in Durand today working, I paused at least every 10 minutes to mutter, er, lament loudly “why oh why did I come to grad school?” I decided today that this summer I’m going to work for a newspaper in Sydney. That sounds divine.
