day nineteen.

i started my adult popular lit class today. we're reading books in all genres: mystery, science fiction, fantasy, western, urban lit, romance, and literary non-fiction.
being forced to read something that isn't a pdf file for a class? oh, and you get to have a class book club- with snacks? yes, please.
i am starting with an audio book by kathy reichs (because i like the show "bones") and ursula le guin's the left hand of darkness.
one of the main goals of the course is to make us nonjudgmental of others' reading interests, which i think most of us recovering english majors desperately need.

i think i may actually get to sleep early tonight.

day fifteen.

this is jc, coming to your live from an online class (so, my apartment, while i listen to course procedures and sip tea).
my professor just noted that, in regard to missing class sessions, "everyone has situations where they can't attend, because their computer was run over by a tricycle or something awful."

i made myself a workout chart for motivational purposes and posted it on the fridge.
i find that when i am somehow tangibly accountable to myself, i get more accomplished.
i also like stickers.

day six.

my reaction exactly.

in non-television related news, i made a burrito tonight and it reminded me of that show "rich girls," when ali didn't know how to make one and had a burrito breakdown. did i say non-television related? i meant highly so.

the(unframed) map of the U.S. that hangs above my bed fell on me sometime during the night and i woke up thinking it was a crunchy new blanket.
