>nothing a little erasure can’t help
February 13, 2008 § 3 Comments
My second semester of classes that I’m teaching began this week. For now, I will say that it’s a mixed bag and leave it at that.
I’m losing focus on my thesis and instead of trying to regain control, I’m puttering around my apartment, making coffee, eating Trader Joe’s chili (yum), and fiddling with my itunes.
-Reading: Among the Missing by Dan Chaon
-Listening: Erasure is a quick fix for the winter blues. Sandra says the intro to “Who Needs Love (Like That)” sounds like a PBS documentary.
-Biggest b.s. lesson plan, that I ended up pulling off: “Time to Go” by Stephen Dixon
-Need more discipline in order to watch: Twin Peaks: Season Two, which is my goal this winter.
-New cat experiment: covering Cornelius with olive oil in order to reduce visitors’ allergies. So far, I’m not sure if it’s working because Sandra wasn’t allergic to Cornelius to begin with.
