I woke up this morning to music blaring and cupboards slamming. I looked at my clock and it read, “5:30.” My roommate was being a passive aggressive jerk once again. He was mad that my other two roommates and I had watched “Sopranos” last night when he was trying to sleep. Instead of telling us to turn the volume down, he had a half hour hissy fit this morning. I was debating whether to chuck his Macbook out the kitchen window or punch him in the freaking face. Instead I tweeted, “Someone sounds a little passive aggressive this morning.” I think that made him just as mad. Score.
I finished my last exam at 3 today! I stopped to tie my shoe on a bench outside and this guy came up to me. He told me he was in my Geology lecture and was wondering if I wanted to get coffee with him sometime. I had never seen him before and I felt bad because I knew it probably took a look of courage to walk up to someone like that. I told him that I was sorry, but I had a boyfriend. I told him that I hope he has a great break. Poor guy.
I got home and remembered that I had spilled fish food all over the floor this morning that I needed to vacuum up. I went to grab the vacuum cleaner out of the closet and spilled a whole bag of charcoal on the floor that was laying on top of it. Sigh.
Whatever. Nothing can ruin my mood!
I’m beginning to realize that the only way to make progress and improve your life is to be completely honest with yourself. We all have things in our life that we’re trying to avoid. Maybe something you’ve done or said in the past keeps creeping into your present. Maybe you’re afraid to think too much about certain things because it hurts. But it’s time to be completely honest with yourself, about everything. Take time to reflect on your life. Instead of hiding from these things that you’re afraid to face, bring them out into the light. Remember that if you let it, each day can be a day of growth.
