Day 182

A work day. A real, live work day. The kind of day not sighted in almost two months.

This is the day that everyone had to be back by … for the workshop. Answers, awards, lectures, speeches, a guest speaker, buffet (definitely on buffet overload now—death to all buffet!), group work, team meetings, team strategery, etc. This ate my day.

I’m not sure why, but I thought this would eat just my morning, that I would have time for some real work. I carried my laptop into work … to do work. Work that never got done because I was stuck … at work … with a bunch of people.

What I realized from this is that I’ve enjoyed my relatively people-less summer. I’ve spent time with friends, made some new friends, played with Meow a little bit, but mostly stayed away from crowds of frothing, gnawing strangers. I also realized that I’m not ready to be friendly with 45 other people today.

I snaked off upstairs to oblivion where I played Trucker’s Delight and destroyed my previously impossible score of “over 1,000,000” with more than 1.5 million (thumbnail). That was better than talking with strangers. Maybe I’m tired of talking about the house. I wanna say, “Go read the blog.” But at the time of this day, there were no posts to read about the house. (As of this post’s writing, the house posts have all been written and backposted, just incase I’m trapped with a room full of strangers again in the near future.)

This Old Hanok

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
