This morning I got up at 6:30 so that I could go running so that I could be done running before I left home at 8:20 to catch an 8:50 bus to Indianapolis, which was the latest one I could take for my 1 p.m. flight to Chicago. 30 minutes ago I was over a frigid Lake Michigan, picking out the buildings I could recognize from the air and fiercely missing my sister. 15 minutes ago, I found what appears to be the only working power outlet in O'Hare. Now I'm about to find out if a three-hour layover is enough time to figure out how to replace frame variables and flatten letrecs.

Of course, it doesn't help that I decided that now was a good time to start training for another marathon, and to start applying for all these workshops and internships and things. Perhaps the internship interview process isn't so much a test of how you do in the interviews as such -- maybe it's a test of whether you can manage to get through the interview process and not drop all the other balls you have in the air.

It's funny -- last I checked, you were supposed to gain hours going this direction.

  • "Is there anything of interest?!"

    The meta-narrative proceeds apace. 4.5 pages so far. Man. I saw Travesties over the weekend, and it's still all I can think about. I think I…

  • Ahh! It's more meta than I can stand!

    Okay, so as I attempted to compose jazz this semester, I kept a notebook which I filled with over 100 pages of dated journal entries. In them, I…
