This Day
I'm not very happy today. I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm sad, just...unhappy. There's a difference, I think.

I'm not entirely sure why. Perhaps it's because I had a blah day yesterday, followed by an emotionally stressful evening. Perhaps it's because I slept very poorly last night. Perhaps it's because work is frustrating this week, and I don't have anything challenging to work on. Perhaps it's because I still don't feel entirely healthy, with a lingering thread of pain running from under my jaw to my right ear.

Or perhaps it's just that I'm having a "day", not a great day, not a terrible day, just a day. I read once that it may be a uniquely Modern American thing, this feeling that we should be Happy all the time. Nobody is happy all the time.

Whatever the cause, I feel very tired and mopey today. I'd like to be alone, or at least not at work. Maybe having a nap with a cat or two.

I'm currently hiding out in my car. I didn't feel like driving anywhere for my lunch break, but I walked across the street for a sandwich. I walked back and ate it here, sprawling in the pushed-back driver's seat with a CD playing and the windows cracked. It's a sunny day today, and the slight breeze feels good.

I like it here. This alone-time helps. Too bad I have to go back to the real world soon. On the plus side, the day won't last forever. They never do.

I'm having a bit of "a day" too. Like everyone else, I'm just figuring it's one of those things that comes and goes, I'm just trying not to stay stuck to it as it departs.
