8:31 a.m., the apartment
Yesterday was kinda hard. I got an F in math, for a start. But today will be a new day, and hopefully better than the last.
Also, important discovery: Sharing body warmth by snuggling actually works and makes you feel quite a bit better. By the way, what did you guys think of my playlist?
I think it could be used for work or to study to, maybe, if you don’t get too easily distracted. (Not sure I’d fall into that category, but oh well.) The fast paced ones are good motivation for getting a project done or writing a paper. The slower ones are good ambience music for reading, especially about history and epic voyages….. (My personal preference)
And I put the one by Panic!At the Disco on there because I like the sound. Don’t know what it would be best to be doing while you’re listening.
I’m working on this plan for a game/improvised play with my friend Anne. She has a little brother who’s helping with this. She’s great, since she likes 19th century literature too, but she lives in another state, so we correspond by email. (Cracking up at a joke that literally no one else will ever understand, sorry.) Anyway, Anne and I are making plans for this play, of guess what book?
If you guessed 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, you’re right. And we’re most likely insane. Once Covid is over and we get back together, we’re going to put this play on, but the dialogue is going to be completely improvisational and we might add in some more adventures of our own. And hopefully make it a lot funnier than the original book.
That’s what the origami sword was for yesterday. Since there are only three of us, we all have to play more than one part. She’ll play Arronax and Nemo (for part of the time) and I’ll play Nemo and Ned Land. (That’s why she has to be Nemo part of the time, so it won’t look like me arguing with myself.)
And yes, we do in fact understand that this particular story is something that grown theatre groups struggle with to make, but who cares. We like this story, and that’s all there is to it.
So that’s pretty much it for today. I’m going to go make my hot chocolate, get dressed and get started on school.
Bye for now.
