I’ve sent a lot of e-mails this week. Mailtrack is really nifty, and provides me with updates on numbers – how many I send out and such. I usually delete them, but I think I’ve sent out more mails this week, than I have in the last month. That probably stems from the fact that I’m away from University at the moment, but it’s still something noticeable that’s out of the ordinary for me.
My free time these days goes in cooking meals and watching TV while doing that. I think that’s the biggest benefit of having a ledge near the kitchen (if you’d like to call the place with my induction top a kitchen), and wireless headphones. You get to enjoy a nice show on your laptop while cooking something you’re happy to eat at the end of the day. It’s good relaxation time.
I have, however, fully realized that lying down on the sofa and working means I will get no work done, and have begun to sit on the sofa & working. Our sofa is far too comfortable for me to get out of before I am done with everything I have to do.
I got to spend time with someone whose academic scholarship I have really admired. As Law School has progressed, the kind of reading I do has changed. I still enjoy my fiction, a lot. But as I think I’ve said before, I’ve begun doing reading in parts – there are things I read for work, during the day, to chill, at night. Day and work reading is largely non-fiction, I find. Academic scholarship has become a large part of that. The more I read, the more I’ve gained the ability to appreciate written arguments and structures, but also the multitude of perspectives on academic topics and debates which derive out of an individuals’ geography and historical background and context.
