Doing a little better…

Doing a little better this morning. I couldn't sleep last night; ended up calling him around 11:30. We talked for three hours, mostly *not* about the things that have been bothering us. It was good; by the end of it, I felt a little more like our normal selves. Still need to talk more about the difficult things, though.

Woke up stressed and anxious around 8:30. Not surprising, I suppose. It's just as well; I have a lot of work I should do today. I pretty much ignored e-mail over the weekend, and I'm guessing it'll take about three hours to catch up. Then I need to go to campus and the rare books room and hopefully not do a half-assed job on my book project proposal. I need to give a five minute presentation in class today at 3:30 -- I think two hours will be plenty of time to prepare that, though I guess I could be wrong. But it should be okay. The rare books room is odd -- you can't bring your own paper and pencils in; you have to use what they provide. But you can bring a laptop, so I will. I'm not sure what I'm going to do my project on -- I'm tempted by Vesalius, with his delineaments of the human body. But I'm also very tempted by some of the old maps -- I think I can make an interesting argument for how they could be effectively translated to a net environment, both with current technology, and projected future tech (something like a holodeck). Something would be lost, but something would also be gained...

Trying to calm myself down. More Clandestine on iTunes, more tea. Maybe I'll light a couple candles; that usually helps me focus, as cheesy as it sounds. Thanks for all your mail in the last few days, btw -- I'll be writing back to you soon.
