I woke slowly, listening to the sounds of the ship swishing in the ocean, absorbing the gentle rocking and creaking of the ship, and admiring the persuasive sun rising just out my window. I stayed in that restful state for a few hours, with no realized ambition to move much. JoRina got up and went to the gym, I continued to linger. Finally I got up, dressed and listened to music while I drank my morning tea and protein shake. I stirred, put on a pretty sun dress for Mass and set out for the day. After Mass I ate a hearty breakfast in the Kings Court, then resigned to my body's need for more rest by returning to bed.

I got up again and checked in with school. My mentor returned chapter 1(of 3) to me with her comments for iterations. My proposal was not accepted in full and will need more attention. I reviewed her comments, they seemed daunting at first then manageable as I got past the emotional let down. I set right to work on it. Unfortunately my computer crashed. I receive error message 0xc000000f and could not access the Internet or my documents. I was able to use the computer lab to print my proposal with my mentor's comments and address her comments in a different document on my iPad, just to keep moving on that project. JoRina and Stefan, the computer lab guy, looked at my computer and could not fix the problem. I Googled the error message on my iPad and found instructions to solve the problem that are difficult to do without access to the Internet from the computer. I may be able to download the fix program to a thumb drive and try to introduce it manually. Very frustrating. I took a break from these two projects to eat dinner. While dinning I stained a skirt I liked a lot. This is what a bad day looks like to me.

I put on my sweats and took a nice long run on deck 7. The wind was formidable, the crescent moon and brilliant stars shone starkly against the deep dark ocean and night sky. That felt good. I was able to clean the skirt, I am reasonably sure I will be able to fix my computer and I know I can edit my proposal as directed. I went back to Stefan to effect a computer fix. There is nothing that can be done while on board. He gave me contact information for mobil computer repair services in Fremantle, that I sent emails to outlining my problem. Things may look better tomorrow.
