A team of cross-trainers crowded Pearce out of the gym today, so he did a few workouts at home while I prepared my dinner.
Pearce is climbing again now, but my time is completely absorbed by App Academy; any free moments I do have are reserved for friends. It’ll be good to climb again when I’m free two months from now.
burning in the sun
I studied throughout the day, taking breaks for meals and naps with Laurel. We woke up early, so the day was long, and we’d accomplished quite a lot by the time the low sun sent rainbows scattering across my ceiling.
Assessment 3 is tomorrow. I feel ready for it. This is good.
you’d never have a clue
A snapshot from the evening, after a long week learning to talk to databases. Mitch made a burrito worthy of legend for Laurel and me, and we all watched a few cartoons together before starting to nod off.
In a spare moment I started to think about code-things again, but was immediately thrown off that track by the sound of Leyla’s coffee grinder. It was a good save – learning these things is great, but I need to live elsewhere as well.
Resting tonight, and then a weekend studying.
full steam ahead
I ate my lunch quickly today, and with the time remaining I was able to slip into the museum a few doors down from App Academy. I can see this little pond from the street, so the place has piqued my curiosity for the last two weeks.
There’s a sign asking visitors not to photograph the paintings, so I followed their word. A photograph would miss the point of the thing, anyway; when you see them in person, you get to appreciate all the subtle textures on the canvas – especially the ones with paint piled on so thick that mountains have formed.
I’d like to sit and stare at a painting for a while, to try and be absorbed into the mindset of the painter or the mood they meant to create, but all I could manage today was a cursory tour. Perhaps I will with more time to spare another day.
