ON A COLD MONDAY EVENING

Oh, it is cold, cold, cold in this apartment...

I just went for a run for the first time since I left Smith. It was 6:30pm when I realized I'd spent most of my day indoors and I just needed to go out. I needed to breathe in fresh (polluted) air, to step away from the computer, from the guitar, from the room in which I think so many thoughts, and just go for a long walk. I took my tiny ipod and listened to some nice music (want some? here; here; here). It felt good. I didn't think about where I was going, I just walked and walked, my head following my feet. I walked past my old middle school – It seems like yesterday that I was running around with my pre-teen friends, acting like the silly kids we were. I passed the dance studio where I used to dance. I thought about how I still love dancing. The other night, I didn't feel like watching tv shows or talking to anyone, I just wanted to dance and forget about everything. I put on music, tried on lovely dresses and heels, and danced until I was tired. I've been feeling up and down and up and down lately; but I made a list – listen here, it was a good idea! I sat down and made a list of all the things that bothered me. I then was able to think about these things and make realistic changes. It was good, it was helpful. 

I wish I could wear dresses and skirts and normal clothes but it's so cold I can't stand to be naked for too long so I just throw on my sweatpants and big warm hoodie and hide under the covers. It's hard to get things done when you feel so good and warm under the covers... I look forward to this week. I think it will be a good week. Vx
