If I'm honest, I don't think I can get the project finished by September. I've been devoting a lot of time to Mandarin, and though I write every day, I don't want to force just anything out by the end of summer. "Exeunt Omnes" feels like something I need to spend some serious research time on, and here I might not be able to do that. I'm not really sure what I want to write about these days. I like the effect of not understanding much of what's going on around me while simultaneously feeling the routine of the days—the everydayness of being here.
