A day late and a dollar short. Well, today’s payday, so there’s not a shortage of dollars currently.
Yesterday I was thankful for being able to work in my own space. I stayed home and graded lab reports and studied. And it was wonderful to be solo for the day. From the way our offices are set up, I share a space with three other people, and while they are great people, it gets a little unproductive around here. I’m also sort of a loner sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, a huge percentage of my happiness comes from my relationships with other people. Actually it’s like 95% of my happiness. But sometimes I just need to be alone with my thoughts. And my music turned up really loud. I love shopping by myself, and walking and running by myself. I find it really refreshing and it often helps me sort out my goals and actions. There’s something to be said for being alone.
So here’s to the last bit of solitude before a weekend packed with my favorite people in the world.
