I've cleared my entire afternoon and evening in order to work on my personal statement.  It's currently 11 pm, and I have made negative progress--I've added nothing, but deleted plenty. 

I have, however, caught up on some reading, and then some.  I have also decided that this is my favorite piece of writing from this year:

From "Animal Tales" by Simon Rich. Published in the June 30 issue of The New Yorker:


“Hey, look, the truck’s stopping.”

“Did they take us to the park this time?”

“No—it’s a fire. Another horrible fire.”

“What the hell is wrong with these people?”

Here's to productivity!
