    Went to the library yesterday, then made sourdough bread, played cards, made a pot of black beans, paid off some bills and credit cards, and read most of California by Edan Lepucki (which is totally awesome and makes me want to Design Things) before watching The Bone Collector.

     

    Life is good.

    I know it sounds silly, but once the first week is over, I'm going to have Nothing To Do. Seriously, how weird is that for me? So instead of rushing out and signing up for everything, I'm challenging myself to be still and enjoy.

     

    I have a feeling it will be harder than it sounds. :)

    Went to Pilates this morning for the first time in forever. It was good to be back, and I feel centered, calm and capable.

     

    Now, onto those final thesis edits.

    Thesis edits done and delivered.

    I'm exhausted, feeling as though I held a mental plank for four hours.

     

    Ground beef, rice and black beans for dinner,with cards.

    And something intellectually easy, like a vampire movie.

    Heard back from my thesis advisor. Edits are spot on, and I should set up table of contents, bibliography, title page and deliver to the second reader on Monday.
    Leaving this morning for the conference, notebook in hand.
    My presentation isn't until tomorrow afternoon, but after registration a woman is talking about "necroscapes and the necropolitical in Blade Runner," so I'm going to go to that, and then there is a reception in the evening.
    Probably won't be back until ten or later tonight.

    The conference was surprisingly wonderful. I really enjoyed each session, and didn't seem to have anxiety issues when presenting, a new experience for me. I presented a piece calling for a fourth wave of feminism, one that deconstructs the old, patriarchal framework of success-through-wealth-and-corporate-prowess. It was fun.

    Afterwards, I got my advisor's blessing for my thesis; all that remains are a couple citations and the prescribed format. I'm pretty thrilled.

    Now, it looks as though my April opened up pretty wide.

    Went for a walk in the neighborhood, then on to the gym with my partner this morning. Ten minutes elliptical, walk, 1km row (6:12), walk to finish the mile, weights: triceps 10@40, glute extension 10L/10R@70, inclined sit ups 12@10 lb medicine ball, 5 pull ups, one minute plank, glute curl 10@40.

     

    Eggs with cheese and hot tea and toast, then the library for a new book and to return a couple movies. Picked up some fresh eggs and produce at a local market before resting. What a great day.

    Put in the final edits and sent the thesis to the second reader. All will be quiet for a couple weeks before I get her response. In the meantime, I have a project from my advisor, and I'm looking forward to it: organizing his many articles and various papers and presentations around his books thematically - currently it's only organized by date or format. It will be fun.

     

    Went to two meetings today and talked with my sponsor.

     

    Life is good.

    Made bread with Vivian this morning, then headed out to the gym with my family. What awesomeness.

     

    Elliptical, walk, weights, pull ups, plank, sit ups,walk, hot tub.

     

    Then a meeting followed by acupuncture.

     

    Steak and sweet potato and navy beans for dinner.

     

    Life is good.

     

    Shenanigans are scheduled to ensue tomorrow.

    Made cream biscuits this morning at oh-dark-hundred and packed them with some snacks for my partner's adventures.

     

    Vivian and I have been reading and playing since then, and I'm about ready for some quiet rest.

    Happy birthday.  Hope you are feeling better!

     

     

    Happy birthday! Get better soon!

     

     

    Happy Birthday Heidi! Sending good vibes and best wishes for you to feel better soon <3333

    Thank you, ladies!

    The celebration with Vivian and Harvey on Wednesday was lovely, and the day of on Saturday was emotional, and flu ridden.

     

    Today I've been nesting on the couch with tea and tv and soup - all to the good in combination with some symptom-mitigating medication. Basically, the doc says I'm going to be miserable for the next week or so.
