I had an hour long meeting with one of supervisors today, which only lasted thirty minutes. So I got paid to hang out and chat with her for the rest of the hour.
My professor said he'd give us extra credit if we showed him that we voted by showing him the "I Voted" sticker you get when you vote. My voting place didn't have any, so the sweet old woman working the polls wrote a note to my professor saying that I voted. It was so cute, I felt like I was in elementary school again.
I have an elderly neighbour whose wife passed away a few months ago. He's in pretty good health and was always out doing yard work before that, but he (understandably) hasn't been doing too much lately. Every single week since his wife has passed away, I've seen one of my neighbours out there mowing his lawn or weeding his garden or pruning his bushes or power washing his driveway. A new family moved into the house beside him a couple weeks ago and my dad was talking to one of them and the guy asked why he always saw different people doing my neighbour's yard work. My dad explained the situation and today when I was walking home from the bus, I saw the new neighbour mowing my elderly neighbour's law. It absolutely melted my heart to see that this guy mowing an almost-complete stranger's lawn.
I don't have any friends here, all of my friends live too far away. So it was a nice surprise when I opened my mail box a couple days ago and there was a card from a friend I've known for like 12-13 years. Made me feel like maybe I'm not that lonely after all. It was nice. :)
Being complimented for the "thoughtful" question I asked during a poetry reading.
I'll tell you the last thing to kill my spirits, my friend who keeps playing this moody/hostile/stroppy card and I can't figure out what is wrong with her and it is sucking the life out of me.
i woke up today with naturally light spirits. An hour into college I just want to give up and forget people exist.
i bought my dog a kong wobbler and put her dinner in it and she seemed thrilled and it made me smile.
I'm a photographer and sometimes when I'm feeling stuck or down, I'll take self-portraits. I posted some to Tumblr and another artist I really respect reblogged it and left a very nice comment about me/my work :)
My kitten stopped batting at my earrings and attacking my head and decided to lay down on my chest and nap. I have to go to work soon so this is comforting and nice.
Just a little compliment on my "glow" that I have while being nine months pregnant. I'm pretty much in pain all the time now, so to hear that really made my day.
That's too exciting!
Had sex with my gf. It been ages for us.
I remembered I have green sequin hot pants to wear out clubbing tonight.
Yesterday my husband texted me out of the blue saying "love you my sexy girl!" - it was a shock, only because I knew he had a really busy day at work, and I wasn't expecting to hear from him until much later. It put a HUGE smile on my face. :)
