Re: Momentary/Meandering/Meditations (Random like the plague

Today I went to my councilor, went to lectures, paid rent, and gave blood. Successful day. (Also, the nurses were utterly lovely about the scarring, it's really helpful to have known beforehand that it's nothing they wouldn't have seen before. They made it a completely comfortable experience).
