Unlike yesterday, when I was on the verge of tears (perhaps due to more biological reasons than anything else), I am feeling rather upbeat about life. I am feeling that I can get things done again. I just posted a blog for my Editing Class today about how I would love to edit creative pieces. Creative pieces are easy to edit, and the creative pieces that I read assured me that there are a few good writers on this campus after all; thus, I am feeling optimistic about how the University of Mount Union still has some people who know how to use the written English language. I am also feeling good about how I will get some things done at home today. I plan to get at least two facials done this week for Mary Kay. I also plan to visit and care for my animals because I have not seen them in about two weeks, and I miss them terribly. I wanted to go home yesterday, actually, but the weather was not kind to me. Now that the snow is melting and that I see mostly unfrozen water on the ground, I see that spring is around the corner. I am quite finished with this winter season, frankly. I am excited about seeing more people who do not live on campus, now that the bad weather is slowly going away. I feel like I may be able to make some plans soon about seeing some friends I have had for a while. I feel like I can accomplish so much this weekend. I can write some papers that I should have written weeks ago, get some facials done, memorize the lines for my scene (I’ve memorized at least half of the script; thus, I am excited), and wash some clothes. Today will be a good day indeed.
