1. I was tickled to see Beth had posted on here again. And I was tickled to get to go with Megs and the girliculas to Beth and Carl’s house the other evening and hang out and talk and here astouding, heartbreaking, profoundly moving stories. That went well because we stuck to it when we couldn’t get into their building, and Megs is super … straightforward about pursuing a goal once she’s set her mind on it–a character trait I would like to emulate more.
2. I got part 3 for my behavior change project all written up, and even though I pretty much relapsed with my intended behavior change, I can still see that I made some progress. For intance, here I am writing a three blessings exercise, and it’s my 3rd for november, and I only one each in august and september. so yeehaw. That went well ’cause I am a super brilliant quick writer.
3. I got four hours in at the lab today, and for the first time ever I felt really comfortable (not “lesser than”) there. That went well because I just stuck around long enough for it to happen. *and* I got to read a really amazing person’s story, in the form of their personal statement for grad school, and I found it moving. That went well because I have managed to develop a little bit of trust with that person over the last month or so.
