I got up and managed to shower, eat, dress, and leave. I barely got to the train station on time. My day went downhill from there. I was expecting a larger paycheck, but it was less than half what I expected. Then I found out that I had a meeting scheduled with my principal and a parent who wanted to complain about my choice of art in her daughter’s class. I had been doing some more controversial pieces thinking that the 8th grade could handle the discussion associated with it. Maybe not.
After school, my day improved. I rehearsed with the principles for my dance show. They again did well and I was in a good mood on the way to the train station. At the connecting station, I ran into Diego. The train was crowded and he sat directly next to me since there were only sets of two seats open. We talked the whole way home. I kept comparing him to Juan as we talked. He wasn’t as interesting. While Juan often talked too quiet, Diego talked too loud. We kept running out of topics. He again asked me to go to a restaurant with him. I told him I had time on Sunday, but he didn’t pin me down to a time or anything. He asked for my number. I wrote it down for him and he rummaged in his bag for something. He already had his number written down. He was going to give it to me a few days ago, but he didn’t see me in the mornings. I felt oddly flattered. He’s slightly closer to my age than Juan. Diego is only 3 years older than me, but he didn’t age as well as Juan. I almost wish I actually liked Diego, who is available. I’m still going to go out on that date with him. It’s funny, I asked the universe for something to separate me from Juan and here it is. It isn’t desirable, but at least it’s something!
When I got home, I felt odd. I kept thinking about Diego and Juan. I actually got a few things done when I got home. I meant to make some food, but some of the vegetables had gone bad. I just hope the meat will be good tomorrow after I get to the store to pick up the necessary ingredients.
Today I’m grateful for having a date, for getting to work with such talented students in my dance show, and having motivation to do things once I was done with work today.
My act of kindness today was making sure to compliment the dancing of all my principle students in the dance show.
I spent time in nature today.
I spent $5.75 on parking today.
I slept for about 7.5 hours last night.
I did not meditate today.
I did exercised today for 15 minutes of walking.
I did not follow my diet. Someone brought in donuts and I pigged out on them.
I did not straighten or clean today.
I did showered but did not brush my teeth today.
My mood was not good earlier in the day, but got better. My temperament was good.
