It's a slow day at work

Wow, time flies and nothing really happens. I've been filling in at work this past week, so I haven't had a real day off since last Friday. Just a couple more days to go.

I've stopped taking my composition lessons. There seems no point when I can't devote enough time to them to prepare for an exam, and they're too expensive to take just for fun... though I really miss my teacher's stories and tangents.

Progress has slowed to a bit of a stop, essaywise. At this point, I'm just tired of school and assignments. I would love to just go home from work and not feel like I should be reading or researching or writing. I'm just about finished my current class, then next term I'll be taking a Humanities Computing course as my final course requirement. I'm pretty excited about it (check out the syllabus), especially because it seems like I could easily fit in a project on Year Zero into my coursework. I haven't revisited it since my talk at the UCLA conference a year and a half ago.

Lately I've been daydreaming a lot about having a garden (probably because I'm usually hungry, and the grocery store by my place isn't big on produce).

Someone needs to edit that syllabus for readability. What I got from it sounded almost like data analysis. Is that valid for an English class? I must say I'm not surprised you were somewhat confused when you first started there. Good luck! May you win a pony.
