Writing is the only way that I can truly calm down when I have had a less-than-satisfactory day. Of course, it helps to sip on some 70 proof kahlua while writing. Acid Bath, a metal band, is also good for the wounded soul. Yesterday started out horribly, as I attempted to place some last minute changes on my editing paper. The paper was a train wreck, and I already plan to give my professor a better draft in the future. Acting class was sucktacular because I was the only student negatively criticized in class, in front of everyone. I went to work in my pajamas and kept losing things while labeling books (the only things that I did not suck at work were the people I worked with and the fact that I finished labeling many books). When I went to editing class, I had forgotten my documentation of my visit to the writing center. The professor forgave me because he knew that I went (after all, I get so nervous when I write for him that I would not feel confident in turning in something UNLESS I went there. He knows that about me). I did not help that I went to my classes without make-up, which is something that I have not normally left the apartment without because I have been trying to advertise my Mary Kay products. Since I am getting a facial today, though, I thought it would be pointless to put on make-up for now. I also could not give anyone facials yesterday due to my bad mood. Perhaps I will give people facials tomorrow. There is no way that tomorrow will be as bad as yesterday. In fact, today is already better than yesterday, despite the fact that I have to do work for my acting class still. I am excited about going to work in a few minutes and getting a facial at the Beauty Barn in Alliance (2855 S. Union Ave., Alliance, OH 44601). I also need to do an editing assignment for tomorrow’s class. It looks like my work is cut out for me for the rest of the day.
