After Today

I was in a good mood for a while today. After tomorrow, I’ll have a wonderful long weekend. I intend to read, sleep, and watch films. In the meantime, I have to do some History of Math homework (I didn’t get the assignment yet, even though it’s due tomorrow) and I have to mow grandpa’s lawn. I am not thrilled. If I never mow another lawn, it would be too soon. I just hope it’s not going to be too wet, because if it is, the mower will clog like a bitch. A cloggy bitch.

I had to eat at Arby’s for dinner; they were raising funds for cancer. I always avoid their roast beef, because it comes in a tube. Or powder. Something. Either way, it’s disgusting, diarrhea-ridden “beef.” I had some chicken sandwich without the bread, because it was gross. I did get a fantastic chocolate turnover. I’ve had one there before and it was awesome. Chocolate turnover. Yeah.

My classes today were pretty short, because of tests. In one, it was a midterm I had to take. In another, it was a retest I didn’t have to take. The other class went long because one student’s presentation kept going and going. Math people don’t know how to condense reports and spare their audience. Mine was weird, because it was geometry and I didn’t have any tools, but I think I got the point across. I can now trisect an angle in 3 different ways. If I need to, as I so often do.

I watched a really good movie called Interstate 60 this afternoon on Netflix Instant on my brother’s PS3, using his convenient streaming disc. Hell yes. It also helped to cheer me up. I can’t remember why I put it on my queue in the first place, but I’m glad I did. I am awesome.

Anyway, my brief spate of mellow cheer was pretty cool. I suspect it has a lot to do with caffeine, which I imbibed today in great amounts. Hoo-ah. Anyway, it was one of those rare times when I feel like my future exists and won’t suck too much. I look forward to relaxing some this weekend. I think I will be able to, although I also assume other stuff is going to make my time off crappy. We’ll see.

Whenever I can breathe, it is fleeting at best. Now I have stuff to do that is weighing on me. I’ll be seeing my trainer tomorrow and I’ll have to talk some about goals or whatnot. I need to do a better job with my food intake, as I am fat. Now that I wrote that, I’m actually going to go get some mint chocolate chip ice cream, even though it’s crappy all-natural Breyer’s bullshit. Mint chip should be awesome and bright green. This isn’t. I can’t believe there’s no “all-natural” bright green dye. Can’t they just use chlorophyll?

Anyway, exercise is pretty much a waste, as I have no reason to be in good shape. Although I must have done something right, because the rest of my family has some kind of infection. Mark’s is bronchitis. I guess that’s what the parents have as well. Anyway, my piano recital is a week from today, and I still have a few errors. I’m at the “overpracticed” part of the recital cycle, because I’m now screwing up things I had down before. My conscious mind thinks it’s better than the subconscious. Not so. Anyway, I keep practicing a bunch of songs, in part because there’s another recital in a month. Dunno what I’m playing then, but it will probably be my Bach piece, if I can get that right.

I just want some time off. I can’t help but think it’s going to get fucked up some how. Cross your fingers for me.
