The traditional roles and a break from it

I have an astronomy lab at eight. It was supposed to start at 7:30, but Dr. Benson decided to bump it to eight so we'd have dark (and maybe clear!) skies in the beginning.

Speaking of weather, it was freezing today! Okay, not exactly freezing, but it's 22C right now outside. I stepped outside this morning, and cool air struck me. I have no idea how cool it was this morning, but it was still cool outside before dinner.

Dinner was a subdued affair, even with the capping entertainment. Ever get that feeling that you're going to confide in someone, but then you ask the other person how she's doing, and it turns out that she has bigger problems than you do? That's what happened tonight. My problems felt so small and less immediate than hers, so I just listened and offered advice. It's not a bad thing, really. It's just that once again, I show myself to be in the advice-giving position. (So those of you who come to me for advice, know that you're not alone.)

Also today, Stephanie and I had fun talking about social awkwardness. I meant to go work on my problem set right after work, but she was waiting on a professor outside a classroom, so I talked to her and kept her company for about fifteen minutes. It was entertaining too.

I know I'm all over the place today. I don't know where my senses are today. That can be good or bad. If you see the senses that give me reason, tell them to come back home.
