They always say the first three days are the hardest. At least, I seem to remember hearing that somewhere... Anyway, the point is, they were right. Well, so far. Day one was okay. I got a lot of homework done earlier than I usually would (read: the day before rather than quickly during free time the day due). I didn't really think about it much, though, because there was a rather important falling out that happened that day and it sort of ate up all my free time.
Day two was ~awful~. I wanted to find a way to get on so bad. I wanted to call Kate and demand she give me the password even though I made her swear not to give it to me for a long while. I did a little homework, but mostly I sat around being lethargic and bored. However, I was told that day that it was a good thing that I wasn't on FB to see the aftermath of the falling out.
Day three was the worst. Though, I will say that it was definitely a combination of not having FB and the falling out. However, I did what I always do when I'm in a rut like that and emailed my always wise and wonderful mother. I attribute my good day today to her.
Today I woke up at 7:30 (on a Saturday--YUCK) and went to play practice at nine, which lasted until noon. We've almost got the whole thing memorized already and it's extremely exciting to see how fabulous some of the moments are when we're only two weeks into it. After rehearsal, I came home, made myself lunch rather than scoop out a bowl of ice cream. I finally put up my calendar in my room as well as my pictures of family, some art that my sisters have made me, some poems I love, and a bunch of postcards from family. I also put up my goals list. I love this thing... In fact, I think I'll share it with you.
*Read scriptures daily--even just one verse
*Pray morning and night--be thoughtful
*Make a conscious effort not to look like a bum--throw on some jewelry or make-up
*Eat healthy--minimize sugar
*Find time to do what you want--hang out with friends
*Smile and be happy--no complaining
Ultimate Goal: Become The Perfect Celestial Partner
"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength."
So... That should tell you a lot about me right there. Haha.
Anyway. After finally making my room more homey, I did some homework, then took a break to play Angry Birds (addicting game, I tell you-good gracious). My friend Jean and I have decided to go running Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 5pm, so we did that. Both of us are extremely out of shape but it was so wonderful. Plus, it's a beautiful day. I didn't even need a sweatshirt and the sun was shining... It was gorgeous.
Rest of the day? I'm going to finish homework, teach myself how to do single and double knots for crocheting (blame the play for that one), and go to a 80s and 90s themed dance.
No FB. I mean, sure, I still want it. I hate not knowing what's going in people's lives and I find myself thinking in terms of what my FB status would be for whatever it is I'm doing. (Yeah, okay, that's sad. Please someone tell me I'm not alone in that.)
It's kind of nice, though. Because I'm getting stuff done. And I'm getting out there. And I'm not spending all my time locked away on FB. YAY!
