I was pretty uninspired today, but at least I finished writing the questions to go along with the musical excerpts that I selected last weekend for a student's comprehensive exams. I also read two dissertation proposals and took care of other school-related taskwork, along with working on course prep for next week.

I'm hoping to open up a little more breathing space tomorrow.
