I put practical work before magick today. I spent most of the morning speaking to a trusted advisor about my back to school worries, and spent the afternoon jumping through hoops to get my student loan application in order. I’ve had to submit the same piece of identification three times now, so the wheels of bureaucracy have definitely become sticky early in the process. I didn’t get my hands on the art supplies for the enchantment half of this week’s project until the early evening, and by then I was pooped. Today really proved to me how much further in improving my energy level I have to go before the start of classes in September. I will try again tomorrow.
