It’s 10pm Wednesday and I’m finally cranking out a blog post for this week. I’ve been trying all day to come up with something write about, but I’ve been largely unsuccessful – it was an immensely frustrating day at work, in ways that my job is not usually frustrating. I am torn between a desire to bitch about my day (which is something I promised myself I wouldn’t do often, back when I started Accidental Fudge), and a desire to put something positive out into the universe (which is a challenge today, because it’s been so frustrating).
I’m going to err on the side of positivity, though, in the hopes that it’ll set me up for a better day tomorrow. So here are three things I’m looking forward to as we launch ourselves into July:
- Three day weekend! Particularly in light of how frustrated my Wednesday was, I am super excited to have an extra day to myself this weekend. I’m planning to get together with a friend in the afternoon on Friday, but the morning will be me hanging out around the apartment, at this point without much of an agenda – there are some creative projects I could work on, or I might read…I’m going to try to resist the urge to sleep it all away.
- New (and hopefully better) health insurance! I decided last month to switch my insurance plan from a HMO to a PPO, and that kicked in as of July 1. The major thing I’m excited about is being able to go to specialists without needing to get referrals. I want to be more intentional about dealing with mental health stuff and am going to seriously pursue therapy now that I know my insurance will cover it. I’m also (finally) going to talk to my doctor about the chronic pain I’ve been dealing with for…well, years, and I’m glad I’ll have the freedom to choose a specialist in whatever field my doctor suggests, instead of being locked into one medical system.
- A less hectic schedule! This is the first time in two years that I’m not taking any classes at the Old Town School of Folk Music. It’s weird, but I think it’ll be good – I’ll have more time at home to work on projects (read: major reorganizing) we’re working on, and won’t have to ration my spoons as much if I’m not being as social. And I still have my weekly volunteering gig in the school’s Resource Center, so it’s not like I’ve cut the place out of my life entirely for the next couple of months.
