Today was a lovely Monday. I had a good day at work, and I loved my class tonight. Richard and Scooter have gone back to Ruston, so I will be living a bachelorette life for the next few days. It’s not lonely yet, but tomorrow could be different. Tonight I came home, made a quick dinner, and plowed through what was left of my reading for class tomorrow. Reading quietly and efficiently was nice, but I am going to miss Scooter’s ax tail hitting me in the face in the morning when she’s awake and I should be getting out of bed.
One of the texts for my Foundations of Higher Education class is A History of American Higher Education, and I am really enjoying the book. Some of it is stuff I already knew, but there is also plenty of new material. I also recognize lots of GRE words, and I learned the word “stultify” today from the reading! According to The Google, the two main definitions area (1) cause to lose enthusiasm and initiative, especially as a result of a tedious or restrictive routine and (2) cause (someone) to appear foolish or absurd. I’m going to use that word in conversation tomorrow, and I hope that my excitement for learning new things and trying new words will not be stultified by the volume of reading I have this semester!
Something that made today great: I made this awesome photo on Snapchat before I went to class. I love a good geofilter. (To be honest, I also love a bad geofilter.)
