Sure... I'm being preachy, but I don't want to put myself through any social trauma or whatever just because I followed my heart. I know that it's silly of me to be saying this, when I have no control over what cards are given me, but I think that the only thing I can do is to play my cards right. Maybe life's dealt me a bad hand, but every great player has to make do with what she has instead of cursing to the high heavens.
Today was supposed to be Thoroughly Prepared Thursday. That's when I'm supposed to shop for school supplies etc. but see, I haven't a clue what my teachers are going to give me. So instead of doing that, I'm going to wrap my books. Not exciting, I know, but it'll give me time to ponder what exactly lays beneath the covers of those books.
Physics, for example, has about 700 pages between those flimsy covers and I find it difficult to comprehend that I'm supposed to learn everything in that book. I don't exactly want to become a physicist. Still, I'm not going to give it a negative thought, because according to my mom, you shouldn't think negatively, or it will turn out that way.
Speaking of my sewing machine-loving mom, she's so much better now!!! Our house help has come back -- so soon -- and I'm not complaining. Her mini-hiatus has served her well and has invigorated her. Not only her, but me too! Now, my mom has less on her mind and I don't have to feel too guilty about being a selfish brat. That's a great thing! I hate feeling guilty.
Emotionally draining afternoon, I tell you. That's what we get for being such snoops.
