By the end of yesterday, after three straight early-afternoon-to-early-morning days of work, I finished my last paper. It was a day late. I felt glad for having been able to sit there for three days, though. I fixed it up a little this morning. It could have turned out better. I guess I should go hand it in.
Bom-Erdene e-mailed me a month ago. I answered her this week, and she wrote back on Tuesday. Then, yesterday, I was able to talk to Handmaa online. That they would still spend some time on me after so long made me think they were my good friends…
My Jay aunt, Marsha, asked me yesternight to go with two of her boys this weekend to help another aunt (Becky) move to Washington. (She also promised a stipend from Becky, which is unnecessary, but which I would take if offered; it’s nearly a month’s salary for me.) I wrote back, but haven’t heard again from her… They’ll leave tomorrow. I have three tests to do still. If I can do them by today, I’ll be able to go. I’ll have to finish my job work next week, though, instead of tomorrow.
As I walked home at 2 this morning, I saw a cat run under a tree (that east-most tree between the Benson and JS buildings). I thought I heard people trying to catch it… Coming around the trees, I saw not people but… three foraging doe deer. One was behind the tree, so I didn’t see it well. The deers didn’t seem to notice me, even when I called at them to leave that cat alone. I thought about trying to approach them, but instead just went home.
