I got to work today at 9 AM (work being a crazy animal sanctuary owned by an equally crazy rich lady who likes to collect animals) and I was quite struck by how gorgeous it was. It was that bitter dry cold this morning, where everything was still. And it was so quiet...the dogs weren't even barking today. This all resulted in an overall okay feeling about the remainder of the day. And I do so like when days begin with optimism.
Also, I was at the gas station getting food on my way to work, and when I went to get int the queue, I noticed that I was standing directly behind a girl that I didn't particularly like from high school. She never even noticed that I was standing there. Not that it's a terribly bad thing, but still. It's not fun to know that I wasn't unduly paranoid about no one knowing who I was in high school. Then she bought a pack of cigarettes and it shocked me. I keep forgetting that my peers are adults now, that I too am an adult now. I don't know why it freaks me out to see people I used to see in freshman algebra buying cigarettes from gas stations now, but it does.
All in all, I'm exhausted from working in the cold, I wish I could write more but I'm rather out of ideas, and I'm very lonely. Oh, and there are two kittens asleep on my bed.
