To be clear, it is Monday but I have not yet gone to Philosophy class. I am writing this blog to 'pump myself up', as it were.

Today I am going to put into action my plan of trying to stay quiet in class – hopefully I will be less frustrated.

For those of you who fear my being depressed – I am in a pretty good mood at the moment. No depression here for now. We'll see how I feel in a couple of hours.

This feeling 'pretty good' is largely due to my having had a productive weekend – I managed to record some rough vocals and do some more writing and mixing work on a couple of tracks as well as getting my live-percussion-looping concept-thing up and running. I also had a nice morning today hanging out with Penelope – we went to Highpoint and I got a neck massage. Unfortunately, as a result of said massage, my shoulder is really uncomfortable and sore.

Perhaps I need another massage?

In upcoming news, Ray is away again so I have to teach his school classes all day tomorrow and next Tuesday. That will be hard and I am not particularly looking forward to it. I will get through it though and will try not to yell at preps.

That's about it for now. I have class in fifteen minutes. We'll see how I go.
