... i am a terrible, terrible grader.
ok, i'm not a mean grader. i just don't like doing it.
there is nothing i hate more than grading papers. specifically research papers. they put me to sleep. correcting grammar errors? boring.
the worst: correcting citation formating. ugh!
... i'm not so good at riding a bike.
i think i mentioned that charlie got a free bike. (that i promptly stole from him.)
my mission was to 1) make henry not scared of bikes and 2) use it for exercise for both me and the dogs.
the bike is a hybrid. i've only ever ridden mountain bikes. much heavier, much sturdier.
i fell off in about 30 seconds. right behind our garage.
must get a helmet.
... i love lofts.
the real ones. converted from old industrial buildings, with no rooms and exposed brick.
... we have wine glasses with starfish on them.
i suppose it's a little tacky, but i like them.
maybe i just like them because they were a wedding present.
guests look at them funny.
... i divide my life into semesters.
it makes for a lot of beginnings and ends.
maybe one day this will end. maybe not.
