Waking up around 12:30 p.m.

Bran Flakes and Berry Cobbler Granola with Almond Milk.

My laptop won't boot up – stuck on a black screen with the cursor and all the other keyboard functions working. I had this problem some time ago. Just needed to take the battery out, put it back in, and then power it on while simultaneously holding down Shift and F8. In the meantime I give it a good dusting with compressed air.


Peanut Butter Bagel. Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips with Salsa. Honey Green Tea. Plum.

Learning some songs on guitar and acquainting myself with songs that my vocal students really want to sing, like Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

I put on my running shoes and jog on the track field by Lynnhaven Middle School. The smell of fresh cut grass fills my nostrils. A couple people walking their little white dog hang out in the football field. Every time I come around one corner the little white dog runs alongside me for a few seconds and barks.

I've got a movie night scheduled with Ana. I share dinner with her as usual.

Baked Tilapia with String Beans, Carrots, Red Onions, and Bamboo Rice.

I set up the big screen under the loft bed and put on Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo (2013), a movie Ana's been begging us to watch together. Colorful. Inventive. Willy Wonka-esque. Also, very Michel Gondry. More quirky than a Wes Anderson film.


Ana's lying in bed under the covers. I say to her softly, "I'm gonna go do the dishes and clean up. When I get back we can canoodle. We've cuddled before but I don't think we've canoodled."

Canoodling and sex.

Sleep around 4 a.m.
