Friday Blues

I am feeling a little bleak today. I stated my day pretty normally. Made my bed, showered, put on some nice clothes instead of my ripped shorts and Tee and ate some breakfast. I got sucked into YouTube like I usually do. I had lunch and read some. I took a three hour nap and when I woke up I felt a little plain. I didn't want to sleep more, I didn't want to eat, I didn't want to go online, I didn't want to read/write/blog/even speak to anyone. 

I finally made a decision to leave the house and try and pump up my flat tyre at the local bike shop - CLOSED. So I walked home slowly trying to get more fresh air. I took another shower and washed my hair this time. I put on some Louis C.K stand up and immediately felt better. I could have easily put on a sad movie I've seen 100 times before and lay in bed for the rest of the day. Instead, I did my nails.

I'm choosing to make myself feel better because, right now, I only have myself. I am on the other side of the world from my family and friends and it isn't easy. I am only 3 weeks away from getting on a flight home, but even when I do arrive in Brisbane, my family will not always be at home or in the same city as me, to help me cheer up. It is not always their duty. Sometimes, you just need to help yourself.

Now, I can hardly type because I am lip syncing at my desk to Michael. Funny how you can turn your day around.
