Hmm: A List of Interesting Things/Thoughts I Noticed/Had This Week

During fall quarter, I had the opportunity to read Jennifer Egan’s “Jennifer Egan To Do” at one of WSP’s staff meetings. If you read her list, it’s essentially an outline of what her narrator plans to do in the future. Some of these things the narrator has to do including having to “Pick up kids” and “Investigate poisons.” I was inspired by Egan’s short story and wanted to do something similar, but instead just expressing what I experienced throughout the week and giving complete strangers an intimate glimpse into my life. Without any further adieu, here is “Hmm: A List of Interesting Things/Thoughts I Noticed/Had This Week.”
