I Got Nothin'

Today was an unremark- able day. Also, for whatever reason, I couldn’t sleep last night. And between the banality of my day and the tiredness of my brain, I am at a loss for a good blog topic for the day.

I went to the Tsunami Pacific - Galu Afi book launch tonight, but I’d just assume wait until Wednesday to cover that.

I asked Suasami, the teacher I usually sit next to at Interval, where she thought I should get my watch’s battery replaced. She recommended a jewelry store in town called The Treasure Box. They got it done expediently for only $14. Although they told me my watch had a broken gasket (is this a watch or an engine?), so they charged an extra $20 to replace that. Fine.

I didn’t realize I’d forgotten my bike lock until I arrived at The Treasure Box, so I had to ride all the way home to get it, and then all the way back.

My personal statement is just about ready, but the LSAC people still haven’t received my last Letter of Recommendation, so law school applications are in a holding pattern.

I’ve been watching Lost Season 5 (Do not leave any comments about Lost, please), which is phenomenal, and reading Chuck Klosterman’s “Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs”, which is incredibly overrated.

My school was relatively unaffected by daylight savings this morning; maybe a few more late-comers than usual to this morning’s assembly, but beyond that, nothing. It sounds like in more rural places school attendance was more chaotic (as I predicted yesterday).

I was assigned 2 student teachers from the National University of Samoa during Interval today, but I had compelling reasons that I should be assigned neither, so they were assigned to other teachers. I admit I am excited to have dodged this bullet.

We started the “rocks” unit in my year 9 science class today. Much of today was spent doing call and response vocabulary. Igneous. IGNEOUS! Plutonic. PLUTONIC! Pummace. PUMMACE! etc. ETC!

Slow news day. None of these things is worth 500 words. Let’s hope for a more exciting tomorrow.

I hope you’re well. Picture below.

My year 12s are doing presentations from around the world. This is Esau talking about Brazil.

You're incredibly overrated.

Also, this is a comment about Lost season 5.
