Gratitude journaling together

  1. Another pile of celebratory books. :eyes: One might doubt if I’ll ever make it through them all, but that’s okay. Book vouchers are a joy.
  2. Should be able to budget to get a COVID vaccine now that the government allows them to be sold. Wooo.
  3. My old cheap silver nail polish was still fine to use and it’s staying on my nails well without much chipping, I’m impressed. And while it’s not something that always feels appropriate for me, or that I always enjoy, right now I am enjoying it and that’s good.

  • self-gratitude: i’m grateful i’m going to bed earlier than the past few nights.
  • i’m grateful i decided to watch a series because of a stupid, predictable, overused “plot” “twist”. (it’s not a new series so the overused part is maybe not entirely fair but it’s still not worth my time.)

  1. Weekend! I feel I need it a lot this week, first weekend in a while that isn’t troubled by thoughts of my assignments (even if I did try to keep my weekends free of doing my assignments).
  2. Starting to get my runaway Beeminder goal issues back under control. Sure, there’s still a bunch in the red today, but we’re getting somewhere.
  3. Lie-in this morning.
  • the existence in the world of “cosy mystery” books - sometimes, that’s exactly what you need!
  • a long-enough gap between the April showers to mow the lawn, and stop it looking too disreputable
  • that quote coming back to me from school - “When April with his showers sweet/The drought of March hath pierced to the root”. Not a very drought-y March this year, but it does tell you it’s been raining throughout April since Chaucer’s time, so I should be grateful for that!
