Ack. I will do chapter 10 tonight. Tomorrow, 11 and 12. Thursday, 13. Friday, 14. Saturday, review a little if I should have the chance. Sunday, day off, unless I wake up early or get home sober. Monday, next chapter (not 15, can't be buggered to look it up now). I plan to have at least flitted over all of the chapters by the end of next week. I'm debating purchasing a review guide. On the one hand, they give more and better practice problems, perhaps additional clarity, and are directed specifically at helping me learn the material, but, on the other, the textbook should be enough. However, if I do end up needing it, it might be too late to get it if I don't get it now. So... The exercises in the textbook really are kind of lame. They aren't particularly helpful. Hmm. I believe I discussed this yesterday, too.
I have class today. Won't run into R. Oh well. Will be terribly busy. I should find her tomorrow, though. I should also think about Alice in Wonderland before that. Or Winnie-the-Pooh (the real one, not the animated Disney version). Or Job. A marvelous children's story, if one believes The Brothers Karamazov, and I suppose I do, and it is about that time of year again, isn't it?
Ah, Job's comforters. I try, in every possible way, not to be like them at all because they are clearly odious in every possible way. Words, words, words. All words are lies at times.
I sometimes wonder about driving while buzzed. I don't do it - but I'm wondering about when I should put my foot down when I'm getting rides from people who have been drinking. I don't have a zero tolerance policy simply because I know that somebody can have a beer or two over the course of a couple hours and still drive. But, well, it's my life on the line. On the other hand, and I don't mean to sound silly, I don't want to needlessly offend. I obviously wouldn't get in the car with somebody who's drunk, but what about somebody I know has been drinking more than just a couple drinks over the last few hours, though doesn't seem to show it and is certainly "legal" to drive? This will, of course, come up soon, which is why I'm pondering it. I think the solution is to be less tolerant and decline rides with people who have consumed more than I would let myself drive with (which is a very conservative amount unless it's just around the block). I just need to find a polite way to do it - especially since I don't think they're too drunk to be driving, at least legally, they're just too drunk to be driving me. Probably just an inconspicuous declension with no reason given even if pressed. Or should I give a reason if pressed?
True love will find you in the end.
I will have to file the taxes tomorrow.
