the first day back to normal life occurs in slow motion. I don't know how I’d motivate myself to go to my eight o'clock class if it wasn't for the oatmeal. of course I obviate any nutritional value by coating it with brown sugar and butter. but it gets things off to a good start. clinical trials and sugary breakfast.
the rest of the day was okay. the weather borders on perfect, though i enjoy it only through a window and walking to the bus.
one benefit of being on the mainland -- veggie burritos include beans and rice.
