So, I realize it's been a while since my last real update. I apologize.

I've been getting anxious about the job search thing. I joined LinkedIn, I did what I think I'm supposed to do, but I don't really know what it is that I want to do. That becomes sort of a problem when you're writing cover letters about what you want to do to companies for whom you are supposedly going to do it.

I am also getting excited and nervous about the book thing. I have interviews scheduled with the mayor of Athens as well as a woman who has lived there pretty much her entire life (except for about 3 years during law school). I don't know what to ask them, pretty much at all. I mean, I know what answers I want, or at least an idea of what I want to get out of those interviews, but I don't know where to begin on getting that.

The quarter is going pretty well, I have an amazing course with the one and only Professor McHale, and one pretty good one, and the other two are just okay. I can deal with that. Light workload at the very least(except for all the reading McHale assigned...but, so worth it).

Also, there's the Alex question. I don't even know where to begin on that, except to say that I think I'm done. I'm just not sure that the friendship adds any value to my life, and it may in fact be depleting value. Hard to say.

You should ask, "if you went fishing and caught a magical fish that said it would grant you three wishes, would you eat the fish to see how it tasted?".

Also, friendships are never devaluing. It's just a matter of whether or not you care to put in the effort to continue the friendship. Lessening the amount of effort you put in until you reach a happy medium is probably better than cutting off a friendship entirely.

Just my two cents.
