on being a toad

December 9, 2010 separator Life

So I’ve been in an epically pissy mood all day. I slept horribly from bronchitis remnants and awoke [very late] to a severely swollen right eye. I had to finish grad school papers and projects, and I have a presentation in twenty minutes. When I decided to get lunch, the place was already closed. It’s cold outside. Really cold. My car is busted. I can’t find my favorite coffee cup. 
And theeeeen I realized that I was being a brat. I far more things to not be pissy about than reasons to be a toad. It will get warmer, and Subway is still open for dinner. Adding coolant to your car probably isn’t that hard, and tomorrow is Friday. I don’t have class on Friday. 
My point here is that there are usually lots of reasons to be happy, even on really crappy days.
Things That Make Me Smile:
This bucket of farm animals, and the corresponding blog post about why they’re awesome. No – seriously. You have to read it. Now.
My fat cat in a very small sweater. Happy birthday to me. Yesss.
This guy (holding the very first pumpkin he ever carved in his entire life.
What do you have to smile about today?


  1. Yesterday I saw this post of a Woman holding a balance in life. When I start reading this post it seems very interesting. But my friend told me to click here now and I clicked it. This link showed me a site where I saw Essays on Information Science and Technology. I really liked this essay service website.

  2. Yep…that farm animal post was awesome. Even posted it on a friend’s facebook page that is doing graduate school finals. I’m sure it will make for a good study break.

  3. Sometimes it just takes looking at all the good things we are blessed with to make our day turn around for the better 🙂
    Who couldn’t smile about that cute fat cat in a small sweater 🙂 Glad your day got better!

  4. I’ve definitely been there for sure! I am dealing with this huge passport debacle, and overhwelmed with school and I was so frustrated… but then I was all “my problems are such first world problems.”

    No one in Africa is stressing over my anguish of having a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear-type problems.
