Sunday time

I am in bed. Reading. Had a long day, doing some grad school work.

Used Microsoft team to chat with classmates as we planned our project. A project that should have been in person, but was now online.

The two of them appear on my screen. Normal, friendly. I am somehow sideways. I check later, and my camera is fine. It is just a Microsoft team issue, that many apparently complain about.

I have two meetings scheduled tomorrow. I am contemplating laying sideways during both, to see if I appear upright.

Again, it is 10 p.m. I am lying in bed. Reading a book.

It’s 10 p.m. On a Sunday. In March. March. My first year of SOL.

Sunday, 10 p.m. Oh my gosh, I forgot to write.

I barely made the cut-off myself! I scrambled at the last minute….

I love your use of repetition here. Also, I liked being able to imagine the somewhat calm scene interrupted by your realization. Yikes!
