just because you’re not doing well, that doesn’t mean you’re not doing better

Zero dollar day. Worried about my employment situation next year.

Today went sideways on me. After my office hours I had a short but wide ranging discussion with an older female colleague who is also from the south, about religion and rabid conservatism and climate change. I don’t know if it was just random, or if it had to do with dredging up some old issues, but my heart was pounding after that.

Didn’t sleep well last night. Barely managed to make myself go to karate. Karate was good, though. And a very cute little 19 year old was watching me do kata wide-eyed and with her mouth hanging open. So that’s nice.

Tomorrow is a long teaching day, and then I get to rest. Looking forward to rest.
