today's musings

I've been attempting to clean house--and feeling rather disorganized in the process. If anyone reading this has taken Methotrexate, I would like to know if this disorganized feeling is a possible side effect. It is a difficult thing to describe. I just feel "scattered" and can't hold my attention on one thing for very long. This is not normal for me.

I turned off the AC units today and ran the embosser for a few hours. I got four out of five volumes of my Greek book embossed. I'll do volume 5 early in the morning before it gets too hot. It feels good to have the book ready for use. I skimmed through it and see that it appears extremely well formatted and has a handy special symbols list in the front of each volume--something my Hebrew book did not have. This may be an easier time compared to Hebrew, assuming I can concentrate. (Must fill vitamin boxes tomorrow and maybe even get some more this weekend. I really need to be able to get through this class without lapsing on the vitamins.)

Speaking of Hebrew, I found a site ( that has audio Hebrew tutorials and an audio Hebrew Bible. I ordered, and my order is already here after only two days! Tomorrow I'll be checking out the haul!

I have a meeting with my rehab counselor on Monday. I really don't know what to expect. I am progressing well in school and could continue on toward my stated career goal, though I think I underestimated the time necessary to complete the Ph.d. I anticipate wanting a year off to prepare application materials, take the GRE, etc. Perhaps it would be better to simply meet again next year when I know what is happening about CPE... If I end up having to do CPE during the academic year in 2009-10, I could do GRE prep in the summer before and that would solve the problem. There is just a lot that I don't know at this point in my life, and I'm not very inclined to try to figure the next 20 years out when the next five weeks is challenge enough. One step at a time is very important to me. I have a good awareness of the fact that there are things in the distance that need to get done; but my mind does not work well when I try to put it on both short and long-term things, some of which I can't do right now. So I do what I can do and tackle the rest later, when I can do that. Life is much less stressful that way!

Tomorrow, I really must get some more work done on the project and on the cleaning--well, that's a project, too. I hope to not wake up with a migraine, unlike today. That would make things a bit easier. I think I need to post myself a to-do list in a private post...


  • I do still exist

    For those who are still reading (and I do see that a few are still here), I am posting a very, very short summary, like one of those very short…

  • Tired of tests yet?

    Just testing another ap. I think I don't like it, but it does update both blogger and Lj and seems less clunky than the other LJ app. So far the best…

  • testing

    I am testing the IPhone app to see how accessible it is. Supposedly you can do a cut but I think I have to get skilled at selecting a lot of text.…
