    I was thinking about doing something to help support humanitarian efforts the world over. The idea of making and selling pens came to mind this morning. I’m not sure how to go about it, or even if it’s worth the effort, so I’m going to look into it a bit more. There’s a greedy part…

    I felt an incredible sense of accomplishment when I measured the corner angles on the box I made a couple of days ago. They come together at 90° angle. Brilliant. This seems simple enough, and, truthfully, it is. Still, it’s taken me at least a year to get a joint this clean and precise. A…

    We went to Costco today, an adventure that’s exciting in its own right. But, the real treat was seeing the sunset as we were leaving. There are a few apartment buildings in the area. Every time I’m there during the golden hour, I wish I had my camera with me. There are two buildings in…

    I’ve been trying to 3D print pieces that’ll fit together. I thought it’d be so much easier than it’s proving to be. I’m not sure what I’m getting right and what I need to fix.

    “Look, he’s even smiling,” said one of my students today after I had told the whole class how well they have been doing, how they’ve really turned things around since the beginning of the school year. This is the third year that I’ve worked with most of these students, so we have some familiarity with…

    My mom is an incredible cook. Very slowly, I’ve been trying to learn some of her recipes. Tonight, I made chana batata (chickpeas and potatoes) for dinner.

    Unclear. I was reading a math textbook today. It took me a few pages to realise that I didn’t retain any of what I was reading. The same thing happened last night when I was looking up the difference between “who” and “whom.”

    Somethings off. We watched Julie & Julia. It took us three sittings to watch it through. In the movie, Julie works her way through Julia Child’s cookbook in a year. She, Julie, blogs about it along the way, which brings her fame. A movie is eventually made about it.

    I haven’t been getting to the shop as much lately. The cold, even though this has been a rather mild winter, keeps me away, so too does the fatigue. I’ve just been tired lately. It hit me good when I got home this evening. I was completely spaced out.

    I was sweating a fair bit. Through the window, I could see naked men walking through the hallway from the change rooms to the showers, and then back again. Staring at the grain of the wood lining the walls, I was convinced it was cedar. I was sitting on the top-level bench in the sauna…

    I don’t know what’s out there, but Ouli and Genevieve keep begging to “go for a walk” in the hallway. Ouli will jump up on the shoe rack and Genevieve will claw at the door while whining. I can’t figure out what’s out there.

    I haven’t been getting to the shop as much lately. A friend I’ve made there called it my sanctuary. It is.
