It’s been a loooong day, pals. Usually, I take photos in the morning when I’m fresh and energetic and unwrinkled. But today was just a whirlwind of last minute thinking before turning in these two, unrelated big projects. However, as much as I could (and will!) complain about being tired and overworked and behind in everything, about how I wish I had time to think about all of these very interesting things separately and with the kind of individual attention they all deserve, I’ll say this: today was one of those grad-school days that reminded me that (a) I like doing this, (b) I might actually be pretty good at this, and (c) I’m going to be successful at doing all of it in the long run. That fills me to the brim with gladness.
It does not, however, fill me to the brim with energy or vitality, so this is about to be a pretty pathetic bike-ride home…
