Franklin's autobiography is something I'd recommend to just about anyone. The archaic English is surprisingly still understandable to this day, and it's rich with inspiring points on self-improvement and self-education.

"he offer'd to give me a Patent for the sole Vending of them for a Term of Years; but I declin'd it from a Principle which has ever weigh'd with me on such Occasions, viz. That as we enjoy great Advantages from the Inventions of others, we should be glad of an Opportunity to serve others by any Invention of ours, and this we should do freely and generously"

Franklin, Benjamin. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1964.

My schedule this semester is pretty much perfect. Weekday traffic on I-290 is only really on eastbound, so if I come home for a weekend I can go back Monday. Also, I'm already accustomed to an early dinner so I can just use the grab 'n go on my meal plan to snarf down dinner during CS187

This 93° weather has given me a pretty good reason to run/mow/weed without a shirt on

I also don't have a fan, but the towel trick works well enough that I can live without one

To anyone else who can't afford AC - on hot, restless nights, run some cold water over a towel and wring it until it isn't soaking wet, then use that as a blanket
