Today's entry will be fairly short and bland, dear reader. I recently updated my MacBook Pro to try and make some of its programs work faster and in return it gifted me with an onslaught of problems. After a rough morning (I'm feeling under the weather...the jury's still out on whether it's a head cold or depression), I managed to do some reading. After that I took a long walk to Lake Michigan with John and worked on a recording. Then I taught for about four hours straight, made some phone calls and tinkered with my MacBook. I even got sent up to the senior tech-smart-person! That's how important I am.
The sixty degree weather was a nice breath of fresh air, though. John calls a day such as today "the day", meaning, the day when winter is completely over for sure, and spring is on its way. I really hope that's the case. It's been a long winter with no thanks to the pandemic.
I've enjoyed spending my days writing my second novel, which (teaser!) is a variation on a Romance novel, but it's not all that cute. It's a medium that I haven't tried before, so it feels very vulnerable and uncomfortable, but it feels right. Now that we're through "the day" I look forward to writing with the windows open or up on the roof or out on the balcony.
I apologize for the scattered post, y'all. It's been a doozy of a day, and I didn't even get to my book. My brain is turning into mush, so I might leave it here...I promise something juicier tomorrow. Otherwise, flip back to yesterday's post, or the day before. Those are better.
Damn technology issues, gobbling up 2 hours of my night.
Welp, until tomorrow, stay well, stay kind, and stay safe. Let's all go take a nap.
