I pulled an almost- all-nighter last night. Meaning I went to bed around 7:15 in the morning after working on a paper for my Honors Reading class for a long time and then woke up at 8:20 in order to make it to that same Reading class at 9:05. So I spent most of the day running on about an hour of sleep. And then I had to take a midterm in maths. A bit of a crappy day.
But I found some good points in the little things today. I got a package from my grandma in the mail today. It was a very pleasant and welcome surprise, especially after just thinking the past few days about how I miss my grandma's cookies and would love to get some in the mail. And then lo and behold when I checked my mail after a brief lunch before going to study hard-core for my midterm (I'm not sure how much good it did.... maths' not my best subject....), there's a package waiting for me that definitely had some of my grandma's delectable homemade cookies (as well as peanut butter m&ms - sooo good! - and a light up Jack-o-lantern for Halloween this weekend that changes colors - it's pretty sweet!).
And although I didn't really get a nap today (I fell asleep at my desk in front of my computer for about half an hour.... not really comfortable....) and I do have quite a bit more work to do for classes tomorrow, I got a chai on the way back to my dorm from a viewing of "Comedian" about Jerry Seinfeld for one of my classes tomorrow. And now I feel much more calm and relaxed about the next few hectic days and everything that happened today and this weekend. Cheers.
