I had this crazy thought in regards to this morning, which totally didn’t work out, but it’s one of my goals so I’m going to tell you guys about it. I decided last night that I wasn’t really willing to give up my morning’s exercise just because I have to go to school at the crack of fucking dawn. So I set my alarm for 5:45 this morning. 5:45 … do you hear me? What, have I gone completely insane? Nobody in their right mind should ever wake up at 5:45, let alone do it by their own free will.
The honest truth is that the only reason I feel bad at the end of a school day (other than that whole pesky exhaustion thing) is because I didn’t exercise that day. If I’m going to get up and do stuff all day long, I want exercise to be included in it. So I have to figure out how to incorporate that into my school life.
The other thing that I have to work on, which is immediately apparent, is sleep. I have a virtually impossible time going to sleep before midnight, but I keep on trying to get up earlier and earlier. Of course, all this means is that I’m just getting less and less sleep as time goes on … definitely not what I want and not what’s good for me.
It’s funny all the ways that school is changing my life … the little ways that nobody else would notice. Like yesterday I was at CVS and I went over to look at the nail polish section until I realized that I don’t have any nails left, so there isn’t much point. And like cutting my nails off in the first place. I’m a jewelry shopper and when I do shop for the stuff, it’s mostly rings and bracelets that I’m looking for. But now, since we’re supposed to remove any jewelry from our hands and arms whenever we’re working on anyone, I’ve had to stop shopping for rings and bracelets. And I’ve started eating only organic food again, because it just makes me feel SO MUCH BETTER and that’s really important right now.
I am so excited about all of this. Can you tell? (giant grin)
