General Monday Randomness

-I normally can't stand summer, but this year in particular I am very grateful for it. The evenings are long and peaceful instead of rushed like they were during the school year.

-Day 1 of the cleanse is done and went well. The hardest time was lunchtime and the afternoon. I got tempted quite a few times, but I managed to avoid most of it. I did have a bit of peanut butter with my celery when I got home, but I'm not going to beat myself up over it. At least I didn't eat the pan dulce in the break room at work.

-This is my new favorite song. It is amazing. I listen to it over and over. The whole album is worth checking out.

-I started reading this book. I'm not one for self-help, but this one called to me last week.

-I meditated tonight. Actually, I have no idea if I did it right. It felt a lot like I took a short nap. Is there a wrong way to meditate?

-I got my grade in my fairy tales class: A-. The perfectionist in me is not happy with this grade, especially because of what happened before. This is my third A- in grad school. I got two last year, but I earned them rightfully. I really should have gotten an A in this class. I busted my ass. Apparently I didn't deliver. I emailed her and inquired. We'll see what she says.

-At least I got an A in my internship.

-Roy and I went for a walk tonight. I haven't really been inspired to take any photos recently, because I've been in kind of a funk. But I decided to bring my camera along on our walk, and here are a few things we came across.

Yes, that's a headstone for a person with Shrimp as his last name. Talk about random.

OK, this music twin thing is starting to get really scary. That's my fave song from the album, too!
And congrats on the A!

I'm glad the coldplay album received your seal of approval! my mom just bought it yesterday, I need to "borrow" it from her.

since the music links are blocked at work, i'm guessing from the comments they're regarding the new coldplay album? if so, we haven't heard it yet, but hubs and i are excited about it. :)

i'm glad you're not beating yourself up over the peanut butter thing yesterday. the attitude of accept it and move on is a good one.

Great pics! From the looks of things you must live like right around the corner from me. My fav headstone is the "Coffin" one.

Congrats on Day 1!

Good job on your A-, dont stress yourself out too much over it, though I know it is the principle of the matter.

I think meditation comes in many forms. You have to make it personal. I think an A- is a great grade, but I'm a perfectionist also. Lastly, I love that pic of the violet colored flowers - beautiful! And Shrimp...just totally random!
