    monday = [more,
    tuesday = [dailyRef],
    wednesday = [more,
    thursday  = [dailyRef],
    friday = [more,
    showDatabase = True

floss    = pure ["","floss","wellness"]
calendar = pure ["","check calendar","admin"]
scan     = pure ["scan class notes","scan","admin"] 
dailyRef = pure ["write a daily reflection on each class","reflect","admin"]

more = do
  z <- S.readFile  "/home/chris/.villefort/push"  -- readfile to get # push ups
  let num = read z :: Double
  writeFile "/home/chris/.villefort/push" (show (num+0.3))
  sets <- pushUps num
  return $ [show sets,"push ups","fit"]

pushUps level = do
