I had an upset stomach last night and it carried through into today. I had lots of Stranger Things related dreams involving Eleven last night.
Today I looked up textbook prices and my fall billing statement for university. I also got started on figuring out music lessons for over the school year. As I predicted, I may be taking singular lessons or I may be the only one taking lessons period. I was also the one who took the initiative and texted Doc about our new information.
Why am I always the only one who sustains any interest when it comes to creative projects? I feel like it’s always that way, whether it’s with friends or with family. I perpetually feel extremely alone, creatively.
I edited my workout playlist in preparation for the gym, but my stomach was still upset, so my sister made me chicken and beef flavored ramen with egg in it. I tried to relax and watch the first season of Marcella on Netflix.
My aunt was kind of a dork today. I put up a Facebook joke about suffering, and she took it entirely too seriously and wrote a paragraph-long comment outlining the Taoist view on suffering and the power of love. She’s kind of an old hippie. I appreciated the gesture, I guess, but it made me roll my eyes. Sometimes a joke is just a joke.
My stomach took a turn for the worse after lunch, and I had to cancel my plans to go to the gym, which made me feel lazy. I tried to relax in bed with some more Netflix. On the plus side, I’m really liking Marcella. I think it’s my new Netflix series.
I put on a sweater and slippers, eventually shuffled out to the living room, took some stomach medicine. I read more of my latest book, Behind the Beautiful Forevers.
I guess it’s better that a stomach upset happen now than during the school year.
I went out shopping with my family in the early evening, just to get out of the house for a while. I bought a Harley Quinn T-shirt and a caramel waffle cone frappuccino. I added a cookbook on healthy non-processed foods to my Christmas and birthday wish list. My sister bought Hawking’s A Brief History of Time and I asked to read it after she’s finished with it.
