Marzo Mas: Dread and Anticipation
I am typing from the Cocoa Bar because the internet is out in our pad, and they are being really nice to me because they don't usually allow computers after 8:00 pm.
I want to write more about mi Marzo, but I have to get through this post quickly, before my power runs out because I also have a mountain of online papers to grade. But doesn't everyone?
Here's what it comes down to for me and March: a lot of stressful things are on the horizon and all in MARCH, but these things are ultimately good, even if these things are ultimately . . . high stakes!!! I don't deal with high stakes well. I'm trying to get better at this. I realize dealing with high stakes situations are probably key to getting out of my tight place.
I'm wondering what you do to welcome these situations: How do you turn your dread into anticipation?
The photos below were taken off my Twitter. My first-world problem of the week is that my Android Fb app will no longer allow uploads. So I'm tweeting photos and then embedding the code, but the photos come out rather small.
I met Lara's own Miss I. at the MOMA today after work to see the Cindy Sherman show, but before she arrived I went around a gallery on floor two and collected some awesome lady art.
