today I felt better. better! I felt awake, and able, and okay. I didn’t read, didn’t nap, didn’t lie on the floor and stare at the ceiling. I wrote a whole tutorial. I took my library books back. I ate strawberries. I finally wrote to my nanna.

I like Life of Pi better today. when I like something better a day or so after it’s over, it probably means it wasn’t done (written) that well, but I like the idea. or the story. in this case, I like people lost and surviving. and I like tigers and floating carnivorous islands made of algae with meercats, and having three non-conflicting religions at once. i’ll read it again. but I took it back today, so another time. I still like his first book better, though it was damned with faint praise.
