Hump Day (Wednesday)

Wednesdays are intense. They exhaust me.

Today, I got up at 8:13am (my normal time) after going to bed at 3am due to working on a research paper.

I continued working on it after getting up, and went to dance class at 10. Then I went straight to the library and kept working on my paper until 4, skipping 3 classes in order to have enough time to do my homework. (can you say ironic? I can. Ironic) I rushed home, got some food and rushed back for an obligation from 5-7. Had another class from 7-9, and worked from 9-12:30am.

Still a few hours of work to do on this paper, which is due tomorrow morning at 9:30.

In spite of this, I am so happy right now.

As I was driving back to campus today, I was thinking about all the stressors that are present in my life. Not dwelling or feeling sorry for myself or anything necessarily, just thinking about them.

Then I thought, "And on top of all this, it is a beautiful sunny day. I have a car I love. I am wearing a cool shirt. I love my friends. I love my roommates. I have things in life to look forward to. I enjoyed my topic for my research paper." and after that for the rest of the day, I would spontaneously start repeating this list, adding new things as I thought of them.

Instead of being completely drained by this time, I feel sleepy, but invigorated and happy. I've been rather smiley.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post, I'll be referring back to this.

I adopted the word succisive from Save the Words today. "I hereby promise to use this word, in conversation and correspondence, as frequently as possible to the best of my ability."

succisive: of spare or extra time.

Tomorrow, if I can find any succisive hours, I plan to take a nap. The likelyhood of me actually finding some succisive time is slim. The chances of me taking a nap anyways are good.


  1. Sounds like a productive/crazy day! Glad you're happy!!

  2. A delightful post, thanks Tommy. Attitude is everything.

  3. Getting happier every day! I think I'm probably just being prepared to deal with some even greater trial (which I'll probably blog about later, but my list of topics I want to blog about is growing long!)
