Greycie Loo woke me early this morning. It was not outrageously early, and as i let my mind drift, i landed on creative and useful things to do with the time. Before i started, though, i sent my siblings a rave email about Anki and recommended that it would be good for their kids. My brother was awake in Seoul, realized i was awake and called. We chatted for a long while about the situation with my parents. Both my sister and i have talked with my Dad and we're willing to hold off on significant interventions until after my dad tries his plans.

I wasn't planning on waking to heaviness.

I did have a pleasant time before he called working on new flash cards. When i first got Anki, i realized i could make botanical cards not just for myself but to share with others. Since starting, i've found much better ways to phrase questions and use the flexibility of the system: my original botanical cards are not well structured. I started making new botanical cards and started making my own diagrams, too. I'm fairly happy with how they were working out.

This morning i set aside an hour to work on my Yam. This yam is barely out of the oven, not a cold congealed thing, but if i can avoid procrastinating that would be great. Having a fresh hour to work on it was very good. I will keep trying -- but i see early meetings getting on my calendar again.

Maybe it was summer break with the Europeans on vacation.
