Today I was a Successful Adult.
I woke up early, showered so I’d be clean like an Adult. Then, I went to class and got there on time. Not only did I go to class, but I also paid attention the entire time - a full two and a half hours worth.
My second class was cancelled, so I went home and worked many hours on a very long paper on the mysteries of endogenous neurogenesis. I took a break from writing to go for a 45 minute long run and I didn’t stop once to walk. Now, if you’re a runner, you might say that’s not very long. But, dear reader, I am not a runner and it was a difficult feat for me. Many times I wanted to give up. Usually I would just take a nap.
Afterwards I had some Greek yogurt with cottage cheese, which is a pretty Adult thing to eat (earlier in the day I had a chocolate-filled croissant, does that cancel out my Adult food???).
Yeah. Adult time.

Their Opal-periwinkle mirrors’ sway,
Like patches of sky on glassy waters”
