My inner grammarian is wailing.

And the Mt. Holyoke REU application is in the mail. Or in the pipes and tubes, to be more accurate. Now I have to put together a résumé. By Thursday. Yes, I meant to do this a long time ago, but I really do have to have it finished by Thursday.

Today I walked over to CVS to buy laundry detergent, and on the way back I looked for the "Employee's Only" parking sign (I kid you not; that pained me to type) so I could take a picture of it. Luckily, someone had finally replaced the sign with an "EMPLOYEE PARKING" sign--a grammatically correct one, at that. Whew. Never fear, for I have a grammatical error behind the cut that makes the grammarian in me cry.

I'm still trying to figure out what possession of mine was invited. If you're wondering, I didn't go, but only because I was in the LSC that night and stayed there until midnight working on that number theory problem set. (Mira, Sarah, and Jane stayed even longer after I finished and left. Hey, I wanted sleep.)

I've been thinking about more non-traditional approaches to journaling lately. I feel like I'm in a writerly rut lately. I haven't been improving, whether through writing fiction or through writing personally. I'm just writing about the same stuff every day. I need a way to change this. Maybe I should just draw for a page or so. I usually don't do that because... well, I don't know why, really. I guess it's because I can express my thoughts through text much more succintly than I can through visuals.

Also, I've started writing down my plans for the mathverse. Hey, November's only nine months away, and I actually have a plan early for once. I need to start planning it out, teasing it out, getting to know the little universe that has lived in my head since before my conversion to the math side.

Your (not you're) icon pleases me.

It pleases me, too. Everything I love to nitpick is crammed into a 100x100 space. It's convenient at times like this.

That's sad.

It is. I didn't get a chance to get out my Sharpie and correct all those signs, though. I wonder if that would count as vandalism.

Also, a letter/birthday card in the mail will be on the way to you tomorrow.

This is why it is useful to carry a sharpie around at all times.

Mail! Squee!
