1. lately, it's been getting dark increasingly earlier. today it was dark at 3:30pm. it's harder to handle than you might imagine. very bizarre. i have to take myself to well lit areas (the library) and avoid windows and my apartment. if i don't, i have a strange way of getting ready for bed around 7pm and then just feeling odd.
2. per the usual, i've decided i'm a little bit crazy. in discussing this fact with mark, i asked him to diagnose me. he's very easily influenced, so he did. he believes that i'm suffered from a latent case of adult-onset fabulousness. do you understand the maine squeeze bit now?
3. i'm definitely teaching the jack the ripper books next semester. now that it's decided, i'm a little nervous. more about my walking practices than anything else. i mean it wouldn't be so bad if i didn't look like a 17th century british prostitute (that has got to be the worst insult EVER. why don't people use it?).
