|4th Street, Berkeley, this afternoon. Fall is definitely here.|
Reading — I actually just finished reading a book yesterday: The Thinking Fan's Guide to the College Football Playoff, written by my favorite sports writer, Stewart Mandel. I had a really rudimentary knowledge of what is actually going to happen this year under the new postseason system, so I'm really happy I read this book. Plus, I really love football and reading books about football. I do feel I "get it" now, too.
Thinking — About how much I really want this workday to be over. I just want to go home and relax. Last night I had an entire evening to myself, unexpectedly, and ended up eating the world's most amazing taco salad (delivery!) while binge watching New Girl. It was actually a great night, and I'm looking forward to another really good, relaxing night at home.
Feeling — Tired. I'm averaging about 6.5 hours of sleep per night these days, and I'm also running 6 days per week, so I'm feeling ridiculously exhausted. Hoping to veg out a bit when I get home today, because my hip is a bit sore this week and I don't want to cause a real injury. Fortunately I have absolutely nothing that has to get done tonight, so vegetating is a real possibility. Simplifying my life this year has been such a great thing for my mental and physical and emotional health.
Eating — Well, I just ate an Amy's frozen thing for lunch (nothing to write home about, though it was tasty enough for my everyday lunch!), but tonight I think I'm going to make a green salad with balsamic vinaigrette to have with my spaghetti + spicy marinara. Not fancy, but really, really good.
Dreaming — I haven't had very many dreams lately that I can remember. What ones I have had, and have remembered anything about, have been really weird and fragmented. I remember the days where I could remember all of my dreams in Technicolor (mostly when I was on psychiatric medication in my late teens/early 20s). My dream diary was the most awesome thing around. No, I'm not linking it here, even though I'm pretty sure it's still online. Some things should stay mysterious.
