Today is Wednesday

7:00 She rises with the intention of running, but upon feeling the pain of the recent acquired blister decides not to. She opts for indoor training with her roommate.
8:30 She lightly steps into a warm shower that seems to engulf her.
9:40 Outside on a lovely day, though waiting for the bus.
10:20 Studying commences. Today was filled with more reading on Benjamin followed by a trip to a different library to retrieve more books for my research. In the process of looking for a book on Coco Chanel, which was unfortunately entirely in French, she found books on pattern design. This inspired the rest of the afternoon's activities.
1:00 She designed a skirt pattern.
3:00 She decided to take a detour along the way to the grocery store to the local fabric store. She found a gorgeous fabric of bright green with large white chrysanthemums and grey leaves.
4:30 She began preparing dinner for her roommate. Gnocchi with a pesto cream sauce and toasted walnuts.
6:00 Commenced the epic endeavor that is laundry, while reading Adorno's essay "On the Fetish Character in Music and the Regression of Listening."
Just before 8:00 The neighbor stops by with a pot of tea and a job prospect that she has recommended her for. A researcher for an affluent businessman about to open an art gallery in Vancouver. She is mulling it over, but it seems too good to pass up. The kindness of her neighbor is overwhelming and now she is trying to think of a way to repay her.
