Over the weekend, I realized it was time to get my act together and start intensifying my studying for my upcoming exam (this Friday, ugh). But it started snowing the previous week, and it was cold enough for the snow to remain on the ground for more than a day. Given finicky weather, I figured I could go to school early and study all day, holed up in a windowless room, or I could spend an excessive amount of time outside, stomping around in the snow. Evidently I chose the latter.
I'm glad I did it though because the snow melted the next day, and it's been rainy/foggy/oddly humid (?) ever since.
It may seem funny that I am making such a big deal about the snow. It's as if I'm trying to show how I seized the day or live so spontaneously. Or perhaps it exemplifies how boring my life can be sometimes.
Whatever the case, I needed that snow day. And I could have used one today. After forcing myself to stay at school and try to absorb renal physiology, I realized it was not going to happen. And after wrestling myself for awhile (i.e. looking at my notes, then the clock, then my computer, and back again), I decided to leave.
The grocery store became my substitute snow. I trampled around for about an hour.
I knew it was time to leave when, as I tilted my head down to read some price tags on the shelf, I tried to push the bridge of my glasses up and failed.
I was wearing contacts.
With that, I think I'll go curl up under my snowy comforter and go to bed early. Hope you have a great rest of the week, and have some time for your own mini snow day (snow obviously not required).
