I woke up too early but thought it was okay to get up seeing I’d gone to bed early the night before. I was still tired but I figured I could get into my day pretty quick and have one of those high achieving days. I was wrong.
It took well over an hour to start French. Once I got started, I very quickly got distracted. My daily goal on Duolingo is to make at least 50 xp points. On a normal day I try to do over 200 points xp, which is easily done if I’m doing 30 minutes. Today I barely got past 50 points.
I had a friend ask me to play some WoW with him (and I was going to give up my normal morning activities to do it) but he got sidetracked and didn’t have time for me. At first I felt annoyed, seeing I was going to disrupt my day but that quickly faded into sadness. I guess I just felt like I wasn’t important. I always feel that way, which makes me crave affirmation….or if we’re honest,makes me needy. UGH!
I got into my workout and did it while listening to an Indie Playlist I made. The pace of the music was amazing for a regimented workout. I worked out 7 minutes faster than normal and it felt like I’d worked out twice as hard. I’m hoping to do the same thing again tomorrow.
Next I worked on today’s drawing topic; umbrella. When I first thought of this I was going to draw a winter or rainy scene with the umbrella. Then I had someone point out in Australia umbrellas are just as important in summer. The light bulb moment struck and I created a beach scene.
I know the umbrella isn’t really the focus of the picture. It was the last thing I added to the scene and was by far, the hardest thing to tackle. It took many, many attempts to get something that made sense. I love this drawing though.
There really wasn’t much more to my day except for occasional bouts of sulking and one cosy nap that didn’t last long enough. I’m almost getting a little worried about myself. I’ve been having more naps lately and it feels like it is to avoid things. I guess I really need to refocus the arts and crafts and keep myself creatively busy til these bad feels pass.
I hope you’re having a magical day, with sweet surprises and success in everything you do.
