In the train stations and the airports, he travels with his ghosts. He can throw away photographs, dispose of things, cast off old clothes – still his former lives are entwined with the present and he can hear his roots shriek, refusing to be sacrificed. They throb, connected, ripped from the fields of consciousness.
Virginie Despentes, Vernon Subutex 3

Her body was mortal and wasted, but she now knew that of it there still remained something incorporeal, something like the glow that shines even after a star has burned out...

You shouldn't always return to the past. It's enough that we have to devote so much time to it against our will.

This week I had a lot going on! I am really tired and need to rest, but I don’t think I will be getting a break this weekend. This is actually my first quarter as a full-time student, I’ve been part-time previously for various reasons. I think I’m handling it okay though! Plus, my digital bujo has been really helpful. If anyone wants a blank version of my bujo with hyperlinks, let me know!
I have a lot of reading for the classical mythology course I’m taking. Last week and this week we read Hesiod’s Theogony. We also read excerpts from the Iliad by Homer, the Library by Apollodorus, Metamorphoses by Ovid, Hymn to Zeus by Cleanthes, and Compendium of the Traditions of Greek Mythology by Cornutus. We were also assigned Blood of Zeus to watch on Netflix, which I actually got really into. I’ve been taking notes using tables in the pages application which has been really helpful for the weekly quizzes. I’m also finding the etiologies and themes in the myths that we are talking about in lecture to be really interesting!
In the expository writing course I’m taking, my discussion post was used as an example during our zoom lecture. It was really embarrassing, and I totally fumbled when I was asked to describe how I approached the assignment. I am really enjoying the course though, and the professor is really nice.
Summer registration begins April 12th for me so I had to make final decisions about what I am taking. I decided upon BIOL313 Civilizations Biology, PSYCH257 Psychology of Gender, and BIOL465 Comparative Endocrinology. I hadn’t originally planned to take BIOL465, but there aren’t that many classes that I need to take during the summer being offered for whatever reason. I’m a little nervous since I wasn’t able to find a syllabus for any of those courses, but hopefully everything will be okay.
As far as my workouts go, I normally do an upper body and lower body weight lifting split, two days of HIIT, and have one day off. This week I had to nurse my shoulder a bit though, so I skipped anything that engaged my deltoids. I did some physical therapy exercises, and used ice and heat throughout the week on my shoulder. I’m not entirely sure what I did to it, but it’s starting to feel better. Maybe I’ll post my workout routines here!

My partner and I have a pair of two year old greyhounds, Bruce and Douglas. Can any of you guess where their names come from? I normally clicker train Bruce daily, we are working towards the Canine Good Citizen Test and the Therapy Dog test. This week the poor guy had diarrhea though, and I had to take him to the vet when it didn’t clear up. Hopefully the medicine works so we don’t have to get more tests done. Send him well wishes!

10th of April, 2021 | I don't usually go to the library on Saturdays, but today my best friend dragged me there and I finished a part of my thesis, so it's good! We also moved to another part of the library because people are definitely too annoying in our usual one these days. I'm quite loving the new one though.
