When you need a little Sunshine...

College Station Central Park
I needed some "me" time this afternoon. I've been kinda in a weird mood yesterday and today. Lonely, but with the desire to be by myself instead of wanting to be with others. Unsatisfied. Really, really tired. Unmotivated. All your usual emotions. Except I acted on mine. Yesterday, after over an hour in the grocery store (I couldn't find anything!) I decided that I wanted to cut my hair.
Back story: I've been meaning to actually perm my hair, but haven't wanted to fully commit to the $100+ and extreme change, so I had decided to just cut it back into the same bob I had decided on 6 months ago. But, after calling my hair lady 3 times with no response, I'd given up. For about a month now, I've been really frustrated with my hair. It's just "blah" and I couldn't do anything with it. So, back to the story...
So, I was tired, frustrated with my hair... and decided to just walk into Super Cuts, pay $12, cut 4 inches off my hair and voila! No more frustrating hair. I made the decision at minute 1, sat in the chair at minute 5, and at minute 15 I had 4 inches gone. I actually kind of like it. It's not a great hair cut, but it's better than yesterday' hair mess I was walking around with.

So at lunch today, when I felt that same general frustration with life set in, I decided to take my emotions in my own hands. So I got a Freebirds burrito (my favorite) and went to the local park, and ate while watching the ducks and a cute toddler throw bread with his grandma at said ducks.

It was awesome.

I was only there about 15 minutes. But sometimes that's all I need to pick myself back up ♥

I'm sharing this with you, because I think we all get in funks. And sharing my funk with you makes me feel a little better. So thanks for reading! I hope everyone has a great Friday. I'm getting to go to a cook-out with my office, where I will eat my very first veggie dog. Wish me luck :)


  1. You've figured out something really important about yourself today. :-) Good for you!
