strike that, reverse it!

i may or may not have woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning (read: i did). in an effort to not make the week start off on the wrong foot, i’ve decided to compile a list of all of the things that suck about today and make them better, a la ms. everythingtarian’s may of positivity.

con: it’s monday.

pro: i am going home on thursday afternoon, so it’s techically a 3.5 day week! wooooo!!!

con: it’s raining.

pro: that means a cozy day in my office with the arcade fire station on pandora playing in the background, providing the perfect mood.

con: i didn’t wake up early to go to the gym.

pro: oh hey, extra hour and a half of sleep.

con: boy roommate #1 is moving out today, like moving out to another city and onto different things. i’m really sad about it – he’s one of my closest friends.

pro: the city where he is moving is where a ton ton ton of my closest friends from college live. all the more reason to visit!

con: a new boy roommate #3 has moved in, and it’s really weird to get to know someone amidst the rubble and broken dreams of a transitioning roommate situation.

pro: maybe he will be really cool, and will also like to take out the trash?

that’s all i got. here’s to turning that frown upside down, all across america on the worst day of the week.

what is one negative you are turning into a positive today?
