Had a rough start of the day. I decided to do some cleaning up that had been neglected for a few months in my room. It took longer than what I was expecting. Luckily, I was able to listen to my audiobook while I was working.
Though I didn't finish any books today, I did get some reading done. To me, that's an accomplishment since I don't read as fast as I used to due to my lack of focus since I went back to school.
Also, I got to participate for the first time in the BoB chat. That was crazy! I usually don't do Twitter because, honestly, I don't see a point to it, so I was not used to the bombardment of Tweets. However, I did have a good time reading and trying to respond to people's Tweets.
How did your first day go?
