Day 10.

Because I'd rather it read this way, my favorite classical book is...still difficult to decide. It is either the Iliad or the fragments of Sappho. I have two translations of Sappho, but that is because one is by Anne Carson. If Anne Carson translated the Iliad, though, I'd by a copy for myself and everyone I know. She had a poem in the New Yorker last week and my happiness at reading it hasn't worn off.

I have plenty of happiness, in fact, that I don't think will wear off anytime soon. I've implemented a project with one of my best friends and I have to start strategizing a fundraiser. I refuse to believe "strategizing" is not a word, no matter what that irate red line beneath it says. And, oh my god.
