Me: Was it really daylight savings today?
Steele: Yup. It really was. 

So apparently it was daylight savings time today, and I didn't even know. I did wake up at 9:40 feeling pretty tired, which Steele says should have clued us in. I rolled out of bed pretty quickly to go to a free yoga class near my house. Yoga was good, but hard. I'm really new to it and have really only been doing it once a week, but I want to start doing it more. I enjoy it a lot more than I thought I would.  I'm already feeling sore and I'm sure I'll be even more sore tomorrow, but it's nice to know that my body can do stuff. 

I spent most of the afternoon at a coffee shop downtown, working on my thesis paper and hanging out with my friend Ruby. It was much needed and even thought  my page count is as slow moving as ever, I actually feel like things are happening now. I wrote a lot more about my research today, here's a good quote: 


“If we wish to know about a man, we ask ‘what is his story—his real, inmost story?’—for each of is a biography, a story. Each of us is a singular narrative, which is constructed, continually, unconsciously, by, through, and in us—though our perceptions, our feelings, our thought, our actions; an not least, our spoken narrations….To be ourselves we must have ourselves—possess, if need be re-possess, our life-stories. We must ‘recollect’ ourselves, recollect the inner drama, the narrative of ourselves.”  (Oliver Sacks, The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, p. 111)

I did not take any pictures. I did make Steele and I dinner though, and resisted the temptation of dessert, and did not resist the temptation of starting to re-watch LOST on Netflix. 

This post if kind of long and rambly. (Rambly is not a word, just so you know.) 

Oh, it was not sunny today. Daily weather report! It was cloudy, and slightly sprinkly.
