So what DID I get done today, among those things I indended to do? About an hour of German and maybe an hour and a half of finding conference listings. I sent off 2 emails to get info on professional organizations. And was generally very distractable.
The day is sunny and lovely and warm, so of course i was distractable. And I wasn't particularly focused or motivated today. The two-inch-long German sentence I ran into after an hour intimidated me. And I had evening plans to work out.... (housewarming party! Looks like I won't be attending the Institute's event at this rate since it starts in 15 minutes. Can't do everything.)
I discovered I know - sort of know - a LJ user who happened to be only the second LJ user whose entries i was browsing through. The commonality was from interests, not geography at all. I don't even know if we've ever talked, but she's someone I wave at regularly around campus. It's a small, small world sometimes.
Dilemma: Anime convention is this weekend. And Eurovision is tomorrow. Conflict!
