Good things

February 8, 2011

Trying to focus on the positive; I’m writing this list before I start studying for the evening to remind me of all the good things going on right now:

  • Today was the first real sunny day we’ve had in a long time.  Even though the high temperature today was only 18 degrees, the cold is more tolerable when the sun is shining.
  • I saw the sunrise on my way to class this morning for the first time.  Last month it was dark when I woke up and when I left my house.  Not anymore.  Every day the sun rises earlier and earlier, which means that winter is slowly but surely giving way to spring.
  • Despite the amount of work I have, I always give myself Sunday mornings to do whatever I want.  This typically involves having a leisurely cup of coffee and a pastry at a cafe, then going for a walk in the park.  This Sunday I walked through Argo Dam park right after a fresh snowfall, and it was awesome.
  • Comet Coffee is right across the street from the computer lab where I study, allowing for easy access to delicious beverages during study breaks.
  • I got an A on my first chemistry exam.  Sure its in the introductory chapter/the easy stuff, but still an accomplishment and a much needed confidence booster.  My next exam is in 2 days.
  • Good times with good people are in store for me this weekend.  I just have to rock this chemistry exam, finish a homework assignment, and catch up on a week’s worth of reading that I’ve neglected, and I’ll be able to enjoy the weekend.
