In a Rut

So I started the week off in a bit of a rut. I was feeling a little down (for various reasons) and the fact that I had a presentation Wednesday, a paper due Thursday, and an exam on Friday, not to mention all the regular homework, was not making the week look any more promising. About halfway through the day yesterday, I realized that it was selfish to feel sorry for myself and determined to have a better mood. So I made today a pretty good day. I got up for an EASY run. Very short and slow :) I got back and saw that Mandy had sent me a message, which was nice since we hadn't talked for a while. Then while I was getting ready for class, my package from home showed up! (thanks mom) It has my running watch, some books, and my Whole Foods all-natural honey roasted peanut butter. I have been waiting for this for three weeks! Aside from the package brightening my day, I decided to make a few other people happy, and brought vegemite crackers to class for all the aussies. (I found leftover vegemite from the last student my mom hosted). Then when I got home from class, I had a new episode of the Colbert Report to download from iTunes! Now I am fiddling around on the internet waiting for a few calls from friends. What an uplifting day!
