What (not) to do
What do you do with yourself when you get overwhelmed with the giant stack of things in front of you? I know what I do. When I was in college I would run off during study sessions for, say, English linguistics, to learn Latin grammar. I am not at all kidding. Today, freshly home from Thanksgiving travel and faced with a giant pile of things to do, I repress the desire to start learning a new language, though that would make me happy. I repress the desire to try catching up on all my podcasts. I repress the desire to run away and bake things. But I will allow myself to watch my new movies as I do all this stuff that I am supposed to.
