After work, which was mostly continuing to work on various research and editing projects, I left early for class. The midterm for my academic course, Strategic Communication, is a situational analysis of a news article from the Times of India on the quota reservations in government and educational seats (and, ultimately, elections between different politicians). This was a take-home final that we had received last week, and tonight we weren't originally scheduled for a class because of it; however, we're having to skip a class later in the term, so we voted to just keep going. I think we could all use the break soon -- it wasn't as fantastic a class as we're used to having simply because everyone is feeling the crippling effects of the summer heat, and so the level of interaction between the students was down tremendously. Still, we had some good discussions.
It was a very uneventful day, which I think was a blessing in some way. I'll confess, though, that I'm not entirely sure about how great a blessing is. Perhaps I'll understand better when things really start moving at work this month.
