Because all I seem to do these days is rush around. HEEEEY YOOOOOOOO!
It was another busy day at the 9-to-5 yesterday. I expect the same today.
Yesterday afternoon I was stuck in a meeting until 4:45pm proving that it is not my code that has caused everything to grind to a halt over the last three weeks, and then was cornered to answer more questions for another ten minutes, before I could get down to my car and drive to midtown for my 6pm German class. With traffic being as horrendous as it has been for me lately I feared that I wouldn’t make it in time. Fortunately I was wrong, though I did not make it in time to eat dinner beforehand.
As I drove I prepared myself for class by continuing to listen and practice German using the Paul Noble audiobooks I’ve purchased from Audible this week. In years past I’d fear looking like a fool speaking back to these audiobooks, but in this age of hands-free phoning I look like all of the other lunatics on the road.
Class was good, though we covered a lot of the same ground as we did last week. I have realized however that I need to spend a lot more time thinking and speaking in German if I really want to be able to pull this off before I die.
Getting home from class at 9:15pm doesn’t leave much time to do anything else, especially in this case where anything else involved making and eating dinner. Given my time constraint I microwaved a few frozen Jamaican meat patties that I purchased at Costco the other night and then performed a few rudimentary chores before turning in for the evening.
Friday can’t get here soon enough…
