Black and White is the New Technicolor

Somedays, I just want to stop. Stop studying, stop going to class, stop planning, stop moving. 

Today, for example, I woke up at 6:45 AM, worked until noon, had class until 6:00 PM and didn't leave campus until 9:30 PM.

And while I was driving home I was thinking about the two quizzes that were due before midnight, the 36 pages of reading assigned for tomorrow, and the fact that I haven't done laundry since I've been home from Hawaii. 

But then my day turned around the second I walked in the door because my husband had a full dinner waiting (that is supposed to be my job, but some days it just can't happen)  and just grabbed and hugged me for about 4 minutes. 

It was the best. thing. ever. 

And it made me step back and realize how easily I let trivial things completely overwhelm me.

So, here's to moving forward! And with much more peace than I was feeling a few hours ago.

"Later she remembered all the hours of the afternoon as happy-one of those uneventful times that seem at the moment only a link between past and future pleasure, but turn out to have been the pleasure itself."
