Never admit to the universe that you don't have very much on your plate at the moment. It will quickly ladle out stuff for you to deal with. And even though these were all tiny things to do, as I get stressed if I've got more than one thing going on at a time, I got stressed. Basically, I want nothing much to be going on, most of the time.

Anyway, the birthday meal preparation, the overdue library books, the suit shopping and the meeting are out of the way, now all I need to do is transcribe some interviews. These are quite interesting, actually, with high school students describing how they manage their learning. One of them had figured out how to do a prioritised task list by himself. That could never have been me.

I was reminded of how library technology has changed in relation to the olden days recently. Lo and behold, when I was at the library their entire computer system had died and they had to do things the old way. Except they've obviously gotten rid of those little cards they used to keep in the books and therefore had to write down each book number by hand. Luckily the librarians still had their stamping skills.
