For some reason I had my heart set on feeling like a new person come 1/1/10, or at least 1/5/10, but I don’t. I’m thankful my first few days of 2010 were spent up in Rhinebeck & Cold Spring, NY, hiking in the serenity of the snow-laden mountains, but it made my first day(s) back in regular life that much more difficult.
I stayed up last night to watch Troy, since we were screening it in class on 1/6 (day 2 of winter class), and I have to miss that class for orientation to volunteer on Saturdays at a mental institution. When I get to the first day of class, not seven hours after finishing the flick, I find the first two days on the syllabus are a mistake, and the first day was a screening of Troy, not the second. The plus side? Not wanting to watch Troy twice in twelve hours, I did the mini attendance-assignment, explained my predicament to the teacher, and got to split from class. That way I worked more than I would normally have had time to, allowing me to catch up some. Of course, I wound up working almost 8 hours, so it’s almost as though I didn’t really get a vacation!
But tomorrow and Thursday and Friday should be somewhat more smooth because of the effort I put in today. (I hope.) I also managed to have time to get that new fuel filter. Frank the stoner really creeps me out at the Jiffy Lube. Then again, he told me to ask for a few bucks off, and I paid seven less bucks because of him. (But he’s still creepy!)
After my school –> Stony Brook –> Jiffy Lube –> Commack office –> dinner –> Odyssey day, I think I’ll be asleep the second my head hits the pillow.
Things I didn’t get done today:
– call Sue (back, even though it was on my agenda to do anyway)
– make bloodwork appointment (to find out wtf is wrong with my fingers on my left hand)
– return Troy to Blockbuster
Here’s hoping I remember to do them tomorrow!
Off to read and exercise…
