When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph, the son of Eli, [list of names] the son of Adam, the son of God.
Luke 3:23, 38
I am feeling slightly better; I seem to have lost fever (98.6° feels so good!), but I had to sleep in our recliner last night, since laying down made me cough uncontrollably. This was after taking two Tylenol Flu Nighttimes, which is double my usual dose. Good thing we have a comfy recliner! So I still have essentially the same symptoms, but all moderately lessened. The weather, however, seems to be moving in the opposite direction, towards extreme cold. No weather moderation here: rumors of 100% chance of snow all day tomorrow abound. I hope to huddle inside as much as possible tomorrow, although I could hardly do that yesterday or today.
Thankfully, I seem to have recovered well enough to attend the one thing that has been a beacon of shining hope this week: the CBF Christmas Party, featuring an idea of mine! –the White Elephant Gift Exchange. Ian and I keenly anticipate getting rid of a wonderful gift from the previous apartment occupants at this event, along with embarrassing somebody acutely.
I have begun studying for my Ecology final exam, which is on Monday, and I will soon begin studying for Geology, which is on Thursday. Geology is cumulative, and he covered so much material it deserves at least a week of studying (once I have read the three chapters I somehow fell behind on). Also, I have met with two SPC people, Michael Cohen and Allison Chisolm, both of whom have been very nice. I have three more to meet with in the next week (Rose Curran, Deena Madnick, and Cynthia Allegrezza). These interviews are giving me plenty of leads to follow up on in the job hunt, although I have a hard time seeing how informational interviews will get me a job. At least I feel like I’m doing something, though. Back to coevolution, Lotka-Volterra, and Shannon Indeces.
And yes, I changed the background to plain grey. I wanted to see how I like that for a while. Is it too boring, or do you find it refreshing to see words so easily?
