I’ve posted about this before, but moving 6º N of where I grew up is really confusing sometimes. I’ll think I’ve mostly adjusted and then I have a day where I just think, “The sun should really not be that high/low in the sky for this time of day!” Daylight savings exacerbates that.
But now it kinda sucks for another reason. The sun isn’t going to set until 7 tonight (hooray!). But it looks really bright and nice outside. And then you go outside and it’s a rude awakening that it’s still only ~40º. At least it’s gotten up to 40 though. Last week was still 30s and 20s. Though there’s the potential for another storm next week…no. Just not gonna think about it.
Currently grappling with an essay for my French lit class. The general overarching theme for the class is desire, and the very vague, general inspiration topic for the paper is, “What is desire?” So we had to get our paper topics pre-approved by the professors. They suggested a lot of topics in class and I chose to talk about how the movie version of Dangerous Liaisons doesn’t live up to the book, since so much of that movie just fell so flat for me. So now I have to try to write a paper about desire for a class that feels like a French history/Freudian psychology class…this is going to be…fun. Sure, let’s go with that.
