Thinking Ahead and Accepting Discomfort

Today was a long day. I had to have a difficult conversation unexpectedly, I had a long flight, a train ride, and when I arrived at my RV, I was locked out. By the time the locksmith got there, I had already tried squeezing through a tiny window in the RV, so I was covered in dirt and frustrated.

When I finally got into my RV, I went directly into my bed without really thinking about it. It was 7:30pm. I wasn't tired, and sleeping would have screwed up my sleep schedule anyway. I was just drained and didn't want to do the things left on my todo list. I planned to clean the RV, do dishes, bring the RV to South San Francisco to dump the tanks, and write a blog post. For the first time in a long time, I just wanted to do nothing.

So I lay in my bed and thought about my options. One was to just stay in bed, maybe read or something, and hope I was refreshed when I woke up the next day. That's what I felt like doing. But when I thought about it, I was just setting myself up for another long day by piling my current todo list on top of the next day. If I could just muster the initiative to start doing things on my list, though, I would actually feel better. It always feels good to go to sleep with a clear todo list.

I scrubbed the kitchen counter first. It looked really nice, which motivated me a little bit to do the dishes. That took less time than I expected, which also motivated me. Before I knew it I had cleaned the whole RV, topped off the air in my low tire, and was on my way to dump my tanks. An hour later, I'm back in my RV with enough water to last for two weeks, and I'm on a roll. I didn't even hesitate to open up the text editor and get this post going.

Crazy Day

On 20 year old ramblings

Today was a busy busy day.

I woke up and decided not to go to Psych today, since there's no attendance policy and I had already read the chapter, and instead, go shopping for things I needed for the Purim Spiel. Specifically black pants, a black tie, a white button down shirt, and something pink. I went to coral square mall and spent about an hour getting everything I needed, and a little bit more since I'm always looking for some more mature tops to add to my wardrobe of t-shirts and jeans.

I dropped things off at home, stopped off for some lunch at Subway, filled up my car, and started on my way to school. I had Acting today which is always fun. We worked on our temporary scenes and really gave our characters some life. I got a ton of compliments on my hair, which was really great.

After Acting I had my Math lab, which is just two hours of doing math. Not learning, not a lecture, just doing math. It's miserable. I got most of the way through before giving up, putting some videos from the textbook on the screen, and playing games on my phone.

As soon as I left class, I drove over to Victor's for five minutes so he could give me a dagger I was going to use for the Spiel. It's pretty with dragons on it. I'm not taking it out of the sheath, because that would be too dangerous, but that's better anyway because the sheath is stunning. I went home and had twenty minutes to change and gather all of my costumes together and make sure my sisters were doing the same. Usually I get to eat in that time, but not today.
