  1. That, while these 30 Things lists seem to get harder and harder to write these past few weeks, I keep writing them
  2. That, when I type “30” on my device, auto-reply offers “Things”
  3. That, when I select “Things,” auto-reply offers “I”
  4. That, when I select “I,” auto-reply offers “Love”
  5. That, when I select “Love,” auto-reply offers “Right”
  6. That, when I select “Right,” auto-reply offers “Now”Now
  7. Which is to say: evidence of a good habit revived
  8. The last chapter of Ender’s Game (albeit a problematic book, problematic author) ..

  10. Letting myself take an extension
  11. Following up and “turning it in”
  12. “Free” books on my device
