I thought this would be a good little series to start to keep me from feeling too stressed when writing on the blog. I feel like I sometimes it felt as though I was writing content because I thought it was what others wanted to read rather than what I wanted to write about, but my blog is for me and it started with the intent of helping me with my anxiety and depression. So, I’m going to use it as just that and start a daily, every other day, or whenever I feel like it tea time chit-chat post. I’ll number them off and hopefully get something going where I can have myself and readers looking forward to it.
So, as I sip my tea, I hear my pup chewing on his “log” — yes it is a log, not a stick — and the rain falling slowly outside, I’m thinking of the day ahead. I was supposed to go to work at 7:30 this morning but someone has quit in the night shift and I was already double scheduled, accidentally wrote down for a morning and closing shift, so they sent me back and said to come in for the night shift instead. A little salty because I was already there, awake, dressed, and now I feel dog tired but don’t really want to sleep the day away… and I know that is exactly what I would do if I went back to sleep right now. Might have a wee nap later to keep me awake during my closing shift, since we’ve started on summer hours and don’t close until 11 p.m. on normal weekdays now.
I need to go to the post office and get my package that has been sitting there since the day after I left for Ireland (yes, I realize I’m awful at procrastinating and forgetting things). I’ll probably try to pop over there and get that today. I did manage to adult somewhat today and dropped off my rent in the drop box for my landlord — though today was the last day that it was able to be turned in (I know, I know — I’m awful).
Honestly, I am really hoping for a more positive and less anxiety-driven day today. It seems like every day has been so draining for me here lately and I hate that. I am tired by eight at night and ready to just sleep for 10+ hours. That’s not something I need to get into the habit of. I got my letter about student teaching seminar a couple days ago so I am getting more and more excited about student teaching. It’s only 66 days, 22 hours, and 29 some-odd minutes away until I will be in the classroom on my very first day. I have so much planning and shopping to do! I need more professional clothing because I will have to do laundry waaay too often if I just stick to what I have now. I need more slacks specifically. Although dresses are cute, I’m not always in a dressy mood.
Well, I guess that’s enough rambling for today. (Also, let me know what you think of the blog photo because it’s actually mine today. I wanted to capture the rainy day with my cup of tea!)
