I was feeling a bit better today. I didn’t get as much done as I had planned but that’s okay because I could at least face the things I had to.
I woke up around 6.30 and knew I should just start the day. I spent about 40 minutes doing French. I’m definitely getting a handle on these new words. I think the biggest thing is that I need to pay attention to what things actually mean. There are a lot of little words in French that all sound the same but it’s the context of the sentence that will tell you which you should use. I need to pay attention.
Next on the agenda was a workout and shower. I noticed I had a message from someone I like hanging out with, so got through those things at record speed. I worked out so hard, I knocked 10 minutes off the time.
The next few hours I spent being social. It’s nice to spend time with people my own age. The only people I really meet are in the gaming world, so a lot of them are in their early 20s. While I don’t have issues hanging out with kids, it’s really refreshing to hang out with people my age. This was by far the best part of my day. I can’t help but smile when I think of the silly conversations we had.
The afternoon came quickly and I was ready to nap. Before I did that, I got a quick drawing done for the day. Today’s drawing topic; something geometric. When I first Googled this topic, I was struck with a lot of cool art works but most were for sale, so I didn’t feel comfortable about copying one of those.
I then ended up in a search for geometric mountains. I loved the concept and eventually did something like that off the top of my head. I’m sure it looks like something that has been created and sold a million times over.
There is one small area I have failed in but I’ve decided to not see it as a failure yet, just as a postponement. The Photo Challenge has been more of a challenge than I had expected. I have very limited things to work with and I can’t leave the house yet. I will pick up the challenge at this time next year.
A new Happy List has started today and I have made it a lot easier on myself. For the first few weeks I really wanted to push myself, because there are so many habits I need to form, which will make me happier. I’ve been glad to get as much done as I have been but I really just need the happies this week.
Today, I did happy.
