Sorry, went boring there for a moment.
In writing news, racked up two rejections this week (Clarkesworld and Andromeda Spaceways). Both were form rejection letters (or the same "custom" letters I've received in the past). Haven't pulled my paper file use to keep track of where I've submitted before to so new submissions. Will need to do that today. Also, will all the late night schooling and doing chores in the day, the rewrite is at a standstill as it barely got off the ground. Looking forward to having a lunch hour again and making real progress. Maybe I need a deadline.
I haven't been able to make meeting for the VIllage this month (except my own, which we rescheduled). So I'm feeling oddly out of touch, and strangely I'm okay with this. It'll be another month before I can regularly make meetings. I'll have missed a total of 6 meetings (including committee meetings), which will be more than all the meetings I've missed in the previous 7.5 years.
This is my last few days before starting work. You'd think I'd be going places and doing things, but I can't think of anything I want to go do or see. So I'm probably wasting this opportunity. I've wasted so many opportunities like this, it feels normal instead of panicky. I do feel a little guilty for not getting more done outside. There's wood to chop, and deck and cement pad to fix (and replace). But those last two are larger and more expensive works (that will also require renting tools).
I have one more chapter to read for the current class. We're back into larger functionings, which for me is easier. The previous chapter was on sexual reproduction with which I have some previous experience. So that was fairly easy.
