It's a Beautiful Day :)

It's a Monday, and I'm really happy it's a Monday, which is weird because Mondays typically mean going back to school and for this particular Monday, facing Daylight Savings Time. But Monday also means a short day and now that speech and debate is pretty much over (with the exception of State, but that is a whole other story) I barely have any work. Second semester senior year has officially begun! Diana and I had been discussing skipping sixth period because there's nothing to do on short Mondays in speech anyway, but I wasn't feeling particularly rebellious, so I said nah. I wish I had though, because as predicted, nothing happened in speech. It wasn't too bad, because there's also beautiful weather, with a bright hot sun that only burns if you stay still too long, and that can only mean froyo weather. So after school today, I went with a couple of friends to Yogurtland.

They were having a special, with new flavors, so I tried a whole bunch out. I always love sampling the flavors and figuring out which ones to well together. Unfortunately, it was pretty busy in the shop so I couldn't decide, and just threw a few together, I think Banana Pudding, Churro, and Salted Caramel Pecan. I love Yogurtland because they have really distinct flavors, but these kind of blended together. I'm also a huge fan of toppings, but my advice to you: skip the whipped cream and go easy on the sprinkles.

Life's been looking up at the moment. In summary, my room is clean, there's abundant food in the fridge – even tiramisu and juice! – the weather is getting warmer, and I even found my wedge sneakers that I've been missing for half a year. Now all I need is for my teachers to update the grades and keep on plugging on at Bio and Stats, and I'm good to go. Everything feels normal, and I am really, really enjoying it. I tried a face mask yesterday (even though it did make me break out a little bit) and I did my nails. Of course, there's the nice little surprise from UC Irvine, which means I don't have to worry about college anymore, and, Agents of SHIELD is back on! Life is good right now :)

Speaking of TV shows, I have access to Netflix now, and somehow I decided it would be a good idea to bingewatch both seasons of OITNB in one weekend. So I did. And keep in mind that each season is thirteen episodes and each episode is an hour long. But thinking about it now (of course, it's been less than 24 hours since) I have no regrets, because sometimes it's just good to isolate and vegetate for a bit. I've logged out of Tumblr and I've been trying to wean myself off of social media again, so I'm also going to try to stay off of Netflix, but it's really just too hard to resist. I started watching another Netflix original, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (which has some of the same actors as OITNB, amusing). I have to say, I don't love it; it's cheesy and I hate to say it, but "lame" is the only word to quite describe it, but it has its clever moments somehow. There's only one season, and each episode is only twenty-ish minutes long, so I can probably finish all thirteen episodes tonight. The only homework I have is four Stats problems, and they're not even due tomorrow because of block scheduling.

I'm glad I have something happy to share again. I use this blog a lot for ranting and venting, but I also really want or hope that it's somewhere where I can document the positive moments as well, and I'd love to be able to do that more. Hope you're having a wonderful day as well! ◊
