The beach was AMAZING this weekend. Really, really wonderful. Not as perfect weather wise as last weekend but I don’t know if there has ever been so perfect a day at the beach as last weekend weather wise, I’m not even exaggerating.
I had a really fantastic weekend - both productive weather and habit wise but also relaxing and good. I guess I have missed my dad a bit more than I realized because I was really glad to get to spend this weekend and last weekend with him, especially since he’ll be home this weekend for the Mother’s Day Celebrations. It was also super nice to hear him say that he thinks I’m where I’m supposed to be right now and that one day something will come along and I’ll “know” it’s what’s next but that for right now he’s glad I’m home with mom.
I’m tired today. I woke up (I didn’t get out of bed immediately) before nine am both mornings this weekend which is fairly unusual for me but I imagine that the ocean was calling my name too.
Quite a few of my books came! One of them got damaged in transport (well, actually, I think the issue was in the way it got packed) and I’m going to see if I can get it exchanged because honestly that’s kind of shitty. The cover was bent down the middle and half the other books in the box were stacked on top of the fold so it’s not just a little warped, it’s properly bent. If this was one of the titles from ThriftBooks I’d be a little less annoyed because those only cost me a couple of bucks - used after all, but this particular item was a brand new copy. And, okay it was on sale, but I bought a new book and I want to be the one to start the wear and tear.
I feel like there’s something else I want to see about returning or exchanging but I have no idea what that is. Oh well!
There are so many things I want to read and study and so much writing I want to do and well a whole life to live. I need to head to bed and not pick up the book I started this morning because that will only end in suffering tomorrow from a severe lack of sleep (if I pick it back up, it’s unlikely that I’ll put it back down until I’ve finished it and I believe it’ll take me around 2 hours to finish and it’s 11:30 now). I need a shower in the morning too. My hair is in serious need of rinsing out chlorine and massive amounts of conditioner and a slather of hair mask.
Alright, I’m going to go make myself a thankful list, get some water, brush my teeth, and head to bed. Night all!
