Obviously the time I am posting this shows some of my true character of a procrastinator.
I began reading In Our Time relaxed and quite calm. But after reading the beginning story about Nick and his father, the mood changed to quite the serious one. It goes from being a celebration of ending this woman’s two day sickness and the birth of her child, to a chaotic life-changing scene for Nick. The way it is brought about shows how even the most disturbing things happen suddenly and without events leading to it.
I had a lot more written until I hit publish and it made me re-login and then had it erased although there were plenty of drafts saved.. confused and pissed off now. Oh well.

Handed me explosives. Said good luck.
