Lovely things, weekend edition

 1. When an event I planned for months (in this case, New Student Orientation for 180 students) goes off very well. Obviously there are some things to change and tweak, but overall everything went well and it was one of my more complicated ventures. 

2. Finishing an audiobook. 

3. Going to a scary movie with Nick where I am petrified to the point of trying to bribe Nick not to go. But then I go and it's no big deal and even better, it didn't keep me up all night. 

4. Watching Coop and Chan play football, Chan for the very first time!! The rain and wind tried really hard to cancel the game, but it didn't work. 

5. Adult Boji time at West O with just Hannah and Nick.

6. Taco House, because duh. 

7. When I was packing up and getting ready to leave, Chandler told me about a house near them that's for sale so I can just move there. 

8. Getting a two arm, real hug from Cooper without a device in his hand. 

9. Ted Lasso

10. First Day of School Eve - my 12th year in Higher Education! And sixth academic year at Clarkson College.

Moving backwards

 It's not news to anyone who is close to me that I didn't handle quarantine and COVID very well. 

I got into a weird depression, even though I've never been like a crazy party animal who went out all the time. 

I take that back. Post 2008, I've not been a party animal who goes out all the time. 

Anyway, I didn't handle the world shutting down very well. And I still haven't really gotten my act together. I would really, really like more time to get my act together, but it seems as though the world is going to shut down soon again. 

As long as I can still have my Street Dance on Sept 18...I'll be okay. 

I need to get back on track, just with consistency, health, setting goals, not taking naps every day, etc. And I can't use COVID and the world shutting down as an excuse anymore. I need to completely transform everything and become a new person. 

You know, no big deal. 

I will be working on this starting Monday, after I get through Hell Week at work and my last weekend before fall semester starts. 

Someone hold me to this, please.
