Got up and did [college radio] show at 9 – noon. Much nicer time than last term. Somehow, though, I just didn’t feel like doing the show this a.m. —residue of my poor outlook of last week, I think. I also needed to wake up earlier than 8:15, just so can get alert and into character by the time of the show.
Did homework for much of day — read many pages in Chaucer [this book, I think it was]. The nap I took in p.m. really helped me stay alert for reading in early eve. Called mom — she wasn’t home, so she called back when I was in study lounge. Then she called back at 9:30, when she said she would call at 9. I did some calc afterwards.
Short ideas —
– personal nature of radio show. It’s me and the audience. I choose the music, what I say, etc. Alone for 3 hours gives a chance to reflect.
– technology -> nerds? Sure, there are weird people in humanities, but not so many anti-social nerds. Is there something about science/technology which creates nerds?
