Today is, of course, Harry Potter release day.
I preordered the book from amazon.com in April, which I had done with the previous book.* I know the book arrived on the doorstep in Gunsmoke while I was at work, so prior to 1pm.
I’ve been waiting ever so impatiently since 10am for the book to arrive. I have figured I can allow myself 2 hours reading time when it gets here, then buckle down and work on the project(s) for school for a few hours.
I feel a bit weird for scheduling my reading/studying time like this, but if I don’t I also know that I will (a) read until my eyeballs burn and (b) not actually do the homework. By allowing myself a bit of time to read, I’m really just satisfying the monster who would otherwise distract me from my homework.
Anyway, I have to get back to staring out the window for the UPS guy.
*Which, oddly enough, came out 2 years ago the same week and was also during job transition time. I sense a theme…
