I am still paying back shift swaps, but today’s was an early shift for Mohammad. Early shifts rule! You can actually do things with your evenings. I am not a morning person, so I typically sleep too late on my days with late shifts.
I used my evening to finally watch Schindler’s List because I had just finished reading the book. The movie was very powerful, but I still think the book affected me more. Regardless of the format, it’s an important story for everyone about an extraordinary act of mercy in a world of cruelty.
I have been reading a lot lately. I can usually read about 62 pages a day on the train – 31 on the way to work and 31 on the way home. Hello House has a big bookshelf in the common room full of books for the use of the residents. I am sure that when I leave Hello House someday, I will be adding some books to the collection as well.
