When I started my doctoral program, I wanted to make a visualization for each week. It didn’t matter what the subject matter was or what tools/materials were used to create it. The idea was to have some sort of odd material record of important and mundane — an account of being in grad school. I don’t have data of those first two and a half years, but I want to start the exercise now.

And for last week (the start of the semester), three lines from my dream journal that give some sort of insight into my subconscious:
- Dad was prepping us for the end of the world coming
- I shoved moving stuffed animals and dolls into a Vintage PanAm flight attendant case
- She was helping me to swim, holding me like you do with small children, but I was swimming inside of her; she encompassed me and I could hear her soft reverberations
