yesterday i got held back about 50 minutes at school. it wasn’t too bad, after i finally got to discuss my work with my very encouraging teacher. after that i went straight to the train station & just made the train i had already accepted as missed, without even hurrying. then, while we were passing through den haag, they announced that someone was run over by a train right before the station i would have to get out & trains were not going further than we were. then i had to change trains three times, then take a subway where i’d have to change another time. it was so unbearably crowded & it took me SO long to get home & i was so tired (running on like 2 1/2 hours of sleep) & hungry & homicidal, what a fabulous time to write a gratitude list again.
