Wednesday Randoms

I spent 40 minutes on the line with internet tech support at home this morning.  Thankfully, they were able to solve the problem.  Here's hoping it stays solved, since it definitely wasn't how I'd planned to start my day.

And now? now I'm sitting in a hallway at school, surfing job websites, catching up on some blog reading, and writing this post in which I really have very little to say.

I'm pretty tired, and I woke up with a bad headache this morning.  The drugs are kicking in and making this morning of history lectures a doable feat.  Some night soon, I imagine, I have to be able to sleep better than I have been lately.  At least I hope so.

I'm planning to go to a yoga class tonight, and looking forward to it.  But, if I don't feel a bit better by then, I'll probably go home instead.

It's been that kind of week.  A weird mixture of stuff.  Of not sleeping, and consequently not feeling all that great.  Of carving out time for rest, and ending up restless.

At least I'm getting some reading done as I sit on the bus every day.  I have rather a lot of books to get through in a short amount of time at the moment, so time on the bus to read is a very good thing.

And with that, it's almost time for class, so I'll sign off!  See you tonight for the daily 5!

Hey Lisa,
hope you're feeling better.
I stumbled across this in my wanderings - the effect of blogging on the brain. It's good for you , by the way.

1. Blogs can promote critical and analytical thinking.
2. Blogging can be a powerful promoter of creative, intuitive, and associational thinking.
3. Blogs promote analogical thinking.

4. Blogging is a powerful medium for increasing access and exposure to quality information.

5. Blogging combines the best of solitary reflection and social interaction.

In conclusion, it looks as if blogging will be very good for our brains."
