Today is so far going according to plan.
I tend to be pretty hesitant of coming up with a time table for my days because things don’t always go according to plan and I believe that the secret to good planning is having contingencies.
Today has had contingencies, but they’re great contingencies!
My big idea for today was to do laundry, study for 3 hours, finally put batteries in my computer mouse, make next weeks bullet journal spread, and take a- as I call it- full shower (a full shower is a shower where I not only do normal shower stuff but also do my less frequent body care stuff like putting on a body mask, dry brushing, doing a hair mask etc etc).
So far I’ve done 2 loads of laundry, studied for 2 and a half hours (I’m on a break as I write this), put batteries in my mouse, and (don’t gasp too loud) cleaned my room. (!!!!!!!!!!!)
My room isn’t as clean as I’d like it to be, but it’s far cleaner than it was so I’m happy.
I’ve decided that over the course of this month I want to do 1 cleaning project on each (or most) of my days off work.
My mom and I are going to go out of town toward the end of December, so I want Angel who’s petsitting to not be mortified.
I’m in a shockingly good mood right now, it’s honestly kind of concerning.
Tomorrow my mom’s gonna get Marshmallow’s ashes…
I don’t know how I’ll react when I get them.
I have a little urn necklace and I have someone who’s willing to put some of the ashes in it for me, so I’ve been able to save myself the grief of that. I think actually seeing the ashes themselves would have ruined me.
God I miss Mel.
I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about rabbits. Marshmallow really made me love the species. I was so scared that he’d be impersonal, but he turned out to be so affectionate and full of personality traits that just don’t come to mind when most people think of rabbits.
I’m thinking I’ll adopt another rabbit a little while after I’m settled in to college.
I don’t want to replace Mel, but I just really miss the presence of a herbivore in the home.
I sound like a crazy person when I talk about this; but I really, truly believe that I have a “spiritual” connection with herbivorous animals in general, especially rabbits and cattle. I don’t love to use the word spiritual because I personally associate it with hippy-dippy nonsense, but I can’t think of a less hippy-ish way of saying how I feel. I think herbivores and I just get each other. Like, I remember when my mom and I went to Custer State Park in South Dakota, people were tossing carrots toward the prairie dogs to try to get them to come closer, they just approached me. I think that was an awakening for me.
Since my prairie dog moment, I’ve noticed that all sort of animals like squirrels and such seem to be less tense around me.
I think I have a gift.
Some people have a thick skin, some people have super model proportions, I connect with herbivorous animals.
So who’s the real winner here?
the answer is me
Alright, I’ve gotta get back to studying so I’m headed out.
Thanks for reading!
oh! and I realized recently that I haven’t posted any new photos of myself on my blog for quite a while so here’s a picture of me:
