Tiring Tuesday

Woke up late, missed a subway by seconds, walked down Lexington Street to catch the light rail and had to circle around to Saratoga because of an overdue public construction, missed the Light Rail, got my order messed up at KFC (2 pc. Original Recipe with Mean Greens), missed another Light Rail, got a dead outlet setting up my interactive terminal at the Grad Exhibit and had to move the pedestal — with eMac atop it — across the room, lacked a mini-to-quarter-inch adapter on the DAT recorder for a late-night Sound 1 project, still haven’t read my Barthes essay for Thursday, and am up late again, so that I’ll probably lack sleep when I wake up in the morning.

Yes, it has been a devil of a Tuesday.

On the up side, I did finally manage to set up the pedestal and eMac for my interactive piece at the Grad Exhibit (opening on Friday!), got to record an interesting interview for the Sound 1 project about dogs and the preparation and consumption of azucena, had dinner with a friend from school whose company never fails to brighten my day, got home in time to catch Futurama, and I’m joining some classmates for all-you-can-eat sushi at Shogun tomorrow.

It’s been a relentlessly tiring and uncooperative Tuesday, and weariness has soaked into my bones with the cold and the snow; but I will try not to falter, I will lean on the Spirit, and in Him find strength and rejoicing.

Even youths shall faint and be weary,

and young men shall fall exhausted;

but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;

they shall mount up with wings like eagles;

they shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint.
