Hard Things

Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do?

Today's Adventures

We and our houseguests went up to Champaign-Urbana today.  We had dinner with my parents.  We also went to the Krannert Center for a performance of South African dance by the Gumboots and Real Actions Pantsula Dance Company.  It was incredibly energetic, lots of drumming and body music.  Most of the audience just sat there and watched, but me, the African-American couple in front of us, and one old hippie chick were bouncing around so much we made the chairs vibrate.  :D  So much fun.
