Day 85 (RC 38)

Yesterday (Tuesday), I started reading "The Magicians". I got lost in the book today. It's pretty good Fantasy.

I'm trying to get my sleep schedule back on track, but haven't quite succeeded, I still need an alarm to get to RC ontime.

In the morning, I went through a bunch of recent photos and cleaned them up and archived them.

p.s. My blog isn't getting archived by The Internet Archive... and I have no idea why.

Today was the first truly bad commute in NYC. Train got stuck for at least fifteen minutes, so I ended up abandoning the G train and walking a bit, which was fine, because it was gorgeous out! During my walk and long commute, I listened to the latest Design Matters. Morley talked about how a mentor told her to look in the mirror and say "I love you" every day for a year. I found this concept frightening, which is very interesting to me. Her following point really hit the idea home, which was "if you can't love yourself, how can you expect others to love you" (paraphrased). Later in the day, I was watching Kendrick Lamar perform "i", and I realized he was saying the same thing, so I read through the lyrics. The annotations led me to this gem by Kendrick:
