I’m going to just go ahead and get this out of the way right now, right off the top. There are days where life just kicks you in the ass. You don’t see it coming, and you can actually be having a pretty brilliant day, but it can come out of nowhere and catch you completely and utterly by surprise.
Today actually started wonderfully. A day where I got to go to the old college campus for a bit. I longed for the time I had in college again. I was doing what I loved, had some fantastic people that I became incredibly close friends with, and even lived on my own for a while. I could support myself more than I’ve ever been able to since. Campus was just truly a wonderful place to be for what I was needing personally. It set my mood in a high place that it isn’t necessarily at most of the time and had me feeling like it was going to be a good day.
Work changed that a bit. It was just just a flat out tough day that left me just wary. They don’t come often, but they happen, and they happen with every job. You just have to take it and hope the next day is better. I’m hoping that’s the case tomorrow, but only time will tell. Some evening Minecraft, combined with some of my favorite music, and some fun chatting brought me back to my equilibrium. I’m feeling ok again, and I think I’m back to being ready to face the day tomorrow. Sometimes, that’s all you can do.
