That moment when you realize your impossible-to-shorten-any-more paper isn't actually too long, it just has a bunch of leftover notes and bits you weren't sure if you would need stuck in at the end of it. And you delete them. And it is all ok.
Looking forward to today. Colleen and I are going to start a gym routine. She's starting to feel better, which makes me so happy. I'm going to get some schoolwork and writing for work knocked out today, along with a few applications for more work. We're picking up the bassets from being boarded. The weather is beautiful.
In elementary I used to go to my friend Joanne's house to walk to school together in the morning. They were Chinese & ate ramen noodles for breakfast. Her mama always asked me did I eat yet, I would lie & say no because those noodles were hella good!
Thursday night turned out even more fun than I expected. Worked the door for my friends' nonfiction reading series event, read a brand new essay during open mic (and didn't choke, and people laughed at the right parts), met some cool new people, went to the "afterparty" & drank delicious wine.
