:: [Prev] perfect weekend [Next]
How was your weekend? Mine was pretty great. I feel like I was busy the whole time, yet I was surprisingly calm and rested when I got up today. I finished a paper for school, watched movies with some friends, painted my toenails while eating candy and watching "Gilmore Girls" reruns*, went to a movie, had some quality alone time (watching the frolicking at the dog beach and reading for a couple hours by the lake), had some quality Jim time (mrowr!), got breakfast at our favorite place and got lots of sleep. And within four hours of getting to work this morning, all the happy squishy vibes had been smothered one again beneath a heavy layer of stress and rootless anxiety and nonspecific depression. Stupid work!
I'm hoping to get back at least some of the goodness this summer -- after this Saturday, I'll be out of school until mid-August. That's nine weeks, my first summer off in two years. I'm going to take a dance class, work on some jewelry, make a cigar-box shrine for Henry, visit friends, read books, see plays, and hang out with Jim (mrowr!). I cannot wait!
*I'm obsessed with this show now. I don't know why. I watched it for the first time a couple months ago at the gym -- they referenced Elvis Costello and Tom Waits within the first five minutes, and the banter made the 45-minute treadmill time just fly by -- and now I can't get enough. I'm lame. I know.
