Yesterday was a fairly good day. Yes, I had cram-studying to do. But with a mug of raspberry tea and my iPod playing my happy/sappy playlist, I was good. Sitting in our sunroom, I could look out in one direction to see silver-lined clouds, and in the other to see a dark sky creeping towards me, like Mordor quickly approaching. I stepped outside for a few minutes. The wind was blowing, but it was calm and bold and beautiful. It was the breath before the storm.
(Yes, I can see talking myself into a very Lord of the Rings-ish mood.)
Well, it certainly began to pour. I sat and studied sociology to the sound of rain pounding on the roof and the wind slamming the barn door shut over and over and over again. But it passed quickly, leaving us with the few last golden minutes of the day.
Today I was not so fortunate. It's just been one of those lousy days. We all get them, I suppose. I had the sociology exam I had cram-studied for. I got in a couple arguments, didn't get much accomplished, and forgot to laugh. Light glared in my eyes as I tried to drive and I wasn't thankful for the sunshine. My brother asked my advice & I was stubborn and unhelpful, and my sister asked me to attend her tae kwon do test & I didn't go. My hair is up in a sloppy bun, I'm wearing my big comfy hoodie, and I feel like I could hibernate for a week before catching up on sleep. I can't go to a friend's play performance because I have to work, pre-calculus is a bunch of jargon, and even blogger is not letting me situate my photos correctly.
|okay, so one thing I'm happy about: this photo. the perspective and uniqueness.|
So, after such a day, what did I do? I went and watched the above video, to cheer myself up. It worked, a little bit anyway. And for therapy, I took some photos and edited more. Alright, so it wasn't therapy. It was just an attempt to avoid the pre-calc.
Here's to hoping the weekend gets a bit better. Do you have/do anything in particular to remedy a bad day?
I think I'll go make myself some more tea now.
