I have to say that I am so lucky. I have been bummed lately about a variety of things, especially the past week or so, and there are some speed bumps happening in both my personal and pseudo-professional life, and you know what? One of my friends read about my job trials on the blog and sent me a really long and supportive email and said tons of nice things. My other friend offered to schedule lunch for us to talk about some of the things that have been bothering me. Another friend invited me to go shopping and to dinner tonight, knowing full well I didn't need to sit at home and spend the night brooding. Other friends have emailed, phoned, and I even got a gift in the mail the other day from someone who saw something and just thought it seemed "me" and impulsively bought it and sent it to me. M. and I got a chance to talk for over an hour the other night, which, with her schedule and mine, hasn't happened in probably a year. And I think I'm going to schedule a trip home in the near future as well. My mom and dad even sent me some cash this week to help pay for some of the medical expenses I racked up during my tropical mountain spotted owl fever river plague wasting disease last week.
So, since some of those people read this blog, I want them to know I totally appreciate it. Some of these people don't read the blog, and I need to be better about thanking them more, in person, for being such good friends. It's so easy to get caught up in the craziness in my life and forget that, no matter what, I'm OK. Without a boyfriend. With nebulous job prospects. With just barely above the curve grades. I'll totally be OK. I've been through so much in my life, now is no time to be getting overwhelmed with stuff that I know I can make it through.
I'm going to work on being more balanced. Back to the gym after a nearly two week hiatus -- this makes SUCH a huge difference with my mental health...HUGE!! Back to good eating habits. Vitamins and minerals are our friends! So yeah, I'm lucky and I need to stay on track.
In totally unrelated news -- I Netflix'd The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and it came today, so I'll be watching it this weekend. Thumbs up or down? I also got Team America: World Police, so I think it's going to be a good movie weekend for me. With beer. Mmmmmmm....beer.
