It belongs to Saturday, June 22, 2019
I arrived home around 10:30 PM, after sending my progress from today, and organize my desk.
Indeed it has been a great decision to work six days and left one to rest. Even tomorrow, that I will need to find sometime for doing for process some reimbursements, and to manage few logistics, both things which are a side thing, I feel that during my week, I need to find time for those side things. It has been a long time since I did not defined a completely free day. Having mixed it, with taking free time when I feel like on a Saturday for example, or leaving some work for Sunday was not good. Setting aside this free days make me plan things more efficiently, start the week with more energy, explore more. So, I definitely look for the Sundays to come, on my Saturday days.
Today, I worked on planning theory; and further I read about the ethics of planning. I choose my readings by answering my own questions as I go writing.
In the afternoon, before going to campus, I read for few minutes the republic from Plato. There is an argument by Socrates that affluence and poverty are factors that decrease the the quality of the workers or from their outcomes. For example, if a potter gets rich he might not devote himself to his profession, and so become less hard-worker. While, if he is too poor that cannot buy the tools and the essentials for his job, the products will be of lower quality, and he cannot provide adequate training to his apprentices or sons. I need to read the book for building my argument, but I think what is important is to learn to work hard. The poor might have a higher motivation moved by need. Although he or she cannot produce products yet, or if so those or of lesser quality, their inheritance are hard work, which in many cases are tighten with good values. There is not better teaching for the next generation, who if learned can continue giving a good service to others, might be with greater impacts, than their prior generations did, because of the opportunities that they would be exposed, but still will be same values, and same humility, same hard work.
After I arrived home made rice, fix the blinds, and took the guitar after a long time. I also sang prior getting the guitar other songs. Perhaps what I like from music that is sung are the lyrics, with the voices as well. But it is fantastic how there is lyrics that really touch the heart and one from every single moment. Those song writers are genius or perhaps people who truly love. Today, I listened some songs of Alejandro Sanz, Franco de Vita, Ricardo Montanes, and the great Mercedes Soza. What a voice, what a lyrics. I have not get yet that familiar with English music, beyond the popular one. Also, perhaps still for the language or experience to link them really to the skin, except the song the song Somewhere over the Rainbow by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole.
Over the day, I remembered one of my favorite movies. So I decided to watched it today. “Life is Beautiful” by Roberto Benigni. It took me some tears. First, everyone should know well what was the Holocaust. Feel it. It is extremely hard to believe what the Nazis and racists did. We cannot allow those things to happen in the world. Second, while that it is harder to avoid, but avoid if possible, we should understand what wars means. This is second point is outside of the movie commentary. As I said war is not always avoidable, but those cannot be for greed. Back to the movie is a beautiful story of love and courage. It has moments of laugh and sadness. Maria, la llave!
Last night, I decided to do a reading then I went to bed at 3:20 AM. Unfortunately, I woke up then at 11:11 AM today. I will be shifting this schedule back to early riser.
