So I haven’t written here in a few days. Longer than I usually like to go without writing something. Mostly, I suppose I just haven’t been in the mood or haven’t had anything compelling to say. Also, I was pretty sick most of the week. I really only started to feel better on Friday. I’m still coughing here and there, but not nearly as much as I was.

Thursday I finished writing 10-plus pages on my reflections on learning and technology, which I worked on most of the previous week. Monday I took the test for my traffic school and got 100%. I’m glad to have that out of the way and the speeding ticket off my record. Wednesday we had our final (of four) moving company estimate and decided which company we’re going to use. Tuesday I got an email from a company recruiting me for a position that sounded great; if only we were moving to Bellevue.

Friday night Ben joined Jen and me for The Matrix: Revolutions at the Coronet. All the bad press and word of mouth it’s been getting is undue. It was really good. Much better than Reloaded even. Very different than the original, of course. Pretty violent. Seeing a movie that’s not supposed to be good, of course, usually has the effect of its being better than you expect it to be. I really like Neo’s line toward the end of the film when he’s fighting Agent Smith: “Because I choose to.” This after Smith has dissed all human emotions like love in his questioning of why Neo continues to try to defeat him. Choice. It’s one of the most defining human qualities. It’s what caused the Fall of Man. It’s what Paradise Lost (the topic of my senior thesis in college) is all about. Free will.

Yesterday we spent the first half of the day diving hardcore into packing (and selling some more furniture). It felt good. We spent the second half of the day hanging out with Enoch and Taylor. After some Naan ‘n Curry, we watched Comedy Central into the night.

This evening we head to Juan’s for dinner with some friends.
