So today wasn't hugely exciting. Woke up early for class (not early enough, arrived 10 minutes late) I just can't seem to adapt to classes that early! It's killin me I tell ya, don't know how I'll do real school someday.
After that meeting with the College of Education on Student Success; that is always interesting, and by far one of my favorite committee assignments. Then came back up here to watch a series of City Council committee meetings; that went from 5:30 until like 8. They're considering putting in a new retirement home right next to my house, so a bunch of people from my part of town were there complaining about one thing or another. Mom and I are fairly indifferent, and haven't really experienced the problems the other residents mentioned having. (Loud, noisy passers by; light pollution; speeding cars...)
The rest of my night, unfortunately, is bogged down in Circle K stuff and other assorted "responsibility" emails. I may whine because I'm whiny, but I am quite thankful for my responsibilities and must never run away from them. My responsibilities have allowed me to surpass those that have held me back. Even if that means I don't get to explore as many abandoned buildings, or road trip as often as I like, these last few years have been a journey of exponential personal betterment and it is because of the tasks I have been given and the jobs I have volunteered for.
Song of the Day: My favorite fish is the Humuhumunukunuku apua'a, the state fish of Hawaii. (Because it was briefly glimpsed as a joke in an episode of Star Trek.) I know there is an old '50s-era song about it, and I thought I heard it the other day watching Dirty Dancing but it wasn't it. Today I googled Humuhumunukunuku apua'a -- and what did I find?
