A year ago and tomorrow

So. I will be brief, as I must sleep soon, and there are things to do.

I gave a friend a ride home after class tonight, and she asked me what my thoughts were on tomorrow - what I planned to do. And while my game plan keeps changing - not giving blood, watching TV, not watching - I think, at last, I know.

I'm going to get up in the morning and go to class, listening to my CDs in the car, rather than the radio. And then I'll learn how to write an episodic TV drama, and after that, I'll stop by the noontime memorial service on campus. And after that, well, I go to work.

Because one of those funny little details I won't remember in twenty years is that I start a new job tomorrow - last week, I was hired as a designer-type person for a division of the business school. The people are nice, it's design work, which I enjoy, and so tomorrow, I go find out what the hell they want me to do.

And after work, I'll go to the grocery store and I'll pick up ingredients for dinner, and I'll come home and cook an interesting dish. After that, I'll do the dishes and call my family and tell them I love them. And then, I'll do some classwork, and maybe watch a DVD or read a book before going to bed.

Just a day like any other. Bad things and good things. Sorrow and joy.

LS says to relish life tomorrow. To enjoy what we have, and use it well.

Sounds like a plan to me.
