Dryvember day twelve was probably my best day so far this month. What made it so good? I’m not sure I can explain it, so I won’t even try. Suffice to say, it was good and for that I am grateful. One thing that probably helped was the fact that all my classes went well, which is always nice. Another thing that made today good was laughter. Not that I was laughing at anything in particular, but I did have quite a few good laughs today. It’s as if it were some kind of weird mirror image from Saturday when I couldn’t stop crying for no reason. In case you were wondering, laughing for no reason is better then crying for no reason.
Something else that was good about today was the fact that at no point did I feel like drinking. Sure, I’ve had that before, but it’s nice to feel again. I’m almost halfway through the month, so to have a day where booze wasn’t occupying my mind feels good. Hopefully typing those words out won’t jinx me on Dryvember day twelve.
In other, less happy, news: I still haven’t cleaned my room. Also, I still haven’t finished a short story I want to submit for publication on Friday. I am about halfway done, so that’s good. What’s no so good is I this is the third time I have written the story. The first time, it was too long. The second time, I wrote it by hand. That time, it wasn’t too long, but there was too much navel gazing. Hopefully, third time will be the charm. I would really like to have it done so I can submit it. Even if the result is a rejection letter.
I leave you with this signage from my university.
