I'm writing this from the patio of a bar. I went to a library, found it closed, went to another one further away, it had closed early, again I went further away to another library, closed again. Seems like Madrid is closed off these dates and I've wasted the morning searching for a place to work. What a string of unproductive days! I'll need reassess the way in which I'm doing work these days, I'll need to stick to what is known to be open during the rest of August.

At this time I feel like simply taking the rest of the week off, but I know this decision would come from a place of frustration. Instead, I will take the rest of the day off. If I have no intention of work, then perhaps work will finally find me.
