It’s been one of those not quite great weeks. My alarm clock and I have been disagreeing, I have been running around stressed out all week, and I cannot understand why all of this is occurring. Good thing tomorrow is Friday, the start of a new month, and a day when I can relax and see Sam.
Hopefully today shapes up, it is Opening Day after all. Let’s show the Reds how quality of a team we have, and I hope Yo makes a good appearance out on the mound.
Tomorrow’s plan with Sam will probably involve keeping tabs on the baseball game, but I am treating him to dinner. We’re going for formal round two, since last weekend didn’t turn out the best. I’m taking him out to dinner, we’ll split a bottle of wine, and have a fun night together without any real plans. I’m looking forward to it. I need a 100% good day soon — these days with those pesky issues are just adding up.
I also have a dentist appointment today. I’m not a dentist-hater, but I’m just not looking forward to this today. At least I have the PAVE celebration at seven tonight to go to, and then I’ll be home resting and getting myself ready for a relaxing weekend.
What are your weekend plans?
There is some form of construction going on at Social Sciences right now. Right near my floor. Just a loud powered machine doing something to make a pretty pungent odor. I hope this gets done quickly so I can have some moderately quiet time to get some reading for class finished.
This week has just been one of those weeks that cannot go right at all. I have been stressed out for no real reason, and have just been making errors that I am not used to making, such as leaving my phone with Sam and completely spacing out on taking on a shift for a coworker. Those small things have been adding to even more stress, and I have had no energy lately. I really need to get healthier, work out more, and get into a proper sleep schedule.
I’m trying to look at the highlights in this all. Not every day is filled with these road blocks, and with April beginning in a few days, it will be a fresh start. Plus, I think spring is actually trying to show itself in Wisconsin right now, so that will make this all a little more pleasant.
This whole Euro-trip planning is getting more and more exciting by the day. I am purchasing a sexxxxy money belt to carry around essentials, but I need some form of a secure bag to carry around to store the other essentials, such as my camera, sunglasses, phone I’ll buy there, etc. Does anyone have any good suggestions? I have a lot of large-sized bags from using them for school and such, but I have not found anything perfect to carry around in Europe yet. Let me know if you have ideas.
Or if you think any of these would work:
This Marc Jacobs bag would work — if it had a zipper. $58.
This North Face bag is cute, but might not be so stylish. $25
Any other ideas?
This is Sam’s option. He scoured Zappos for a good ten minutes telling me what I should do. What a nice boyfriend. One who listens to me discuss handbags and travel bags for Europe, but won’t listen to my idea on getting a waterbottle. Hmm.
Dooney & Bourke, $43
There is a 30 Day Facebook challenge going on, which I felt compelled to participate in. However, I’ll just do it all in one day, with twenty photos, here instead. I also altered the questions so I could only use photos I have taken. Plus, some of the other questions I just didn’t like enough.
1. A picture of yourself with fifteen facts:
I learned how to read when I was three-years-old. — I got my worker’s permit the day I turned fourteen and started working the day after. — I am working towards my PhD in higher education, but it will take me a while to get there. — I cannot wait to live out in Boston, and I work hard as much as I can to make that dream come true. — I wanted to be a writer growing up, but was always told it was too lofty of a goal. — My favorite animal is most definitely a red panda. — I cannot wait to travel around Europe this summer. — I cannot stand to have too many e-mails in my inbox, so I delete or organize the e-mail once I have read it or taken care of the request of the sender. — I went through a phase in middle school where I could not sleep, so I slept on my couch. — I get about a papercut a week because I work with so much paper. — I cannot wear cropped pants or long shorts because they make me look short and stumpy. — I have extremely vivid dreams that I recall quite frequently. — I really want to start fishing. — I cannot water ski. — I was supposed to be named Bridget.
