When it gets cold outside and you’ve got nobody to love…

I’m in a good mood today.

It’s funny, or perhaps pathetic, how much circumstances really affect my mood. It hasn’t been that long since I was keeping track of my mood in my planner, since I discussed how a day can go quickly sour for no apparent reason. And, okay, I know I still have those days. I think I always will, I think it’s just part of being the slightly-insane CJ that I am.

Lately, those days have come most frequently on the weekends. I get lonely sometimes, you know? But I’ve done a very good job of staying busy over the past couple of weeks. The other night I was on the phone with my friend Josh, who also just moved to a new place, and we celebrated the fact that we both have weekend plans. We were very proud of ourselves for not being complete losers. 🙂

I exaggerate, I know. I don’t actually think I’m a loser (well, maybe I do one day out of each year–but not in general).

But as I was saying, today is a good day. I’m on day two of a four day weekend, and that feels awfully nice. I didn’t do much of anything yesterday. I was going to be productive, but I ended up having coffee with Jordan instead. Then last night I stayed home alone with my cat and the dog and just relaxed. I cleaned my room, did some laundry, read a bit… it was nice.

Today, and probably the rest of the weekend, won’t be so low-key. I’m going to the lake with some work friends this afternoon, then to BIRMINGHAM (like that’s unusual!) for some baseball this evening. (Watching, not playing. Of course.)

And just in case you forgot, my birthday is Tuesday.

I might write something coherent soon… but today I’m just in a stream-of-consciousness rambling state of mind.

  1. Go read Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point … you won’t feel bad about your environment affecting your mood at all. 🙂
