It’s been gloomy here as of late, and it’s making my mood gloomy too. T_T I’m not a big fan of rain unless the only thing I have to do is huddle up under my blankets in bed. My mom bought me a small room heater a few years ago, and I absolutely love that thing in the winter. It makes my room feel so nice and toasty! Without it, I would be too cold and I wouldn’t focus on studying very well. As you can see, I’m very spoiled by the weather here: rain is usually unwelcome (except when we have droughts…) and we are used to sunny weather all year round. 8-)

It’s 6pm now and I’m finally eating my first meal of the day (besides half a bagel this morning)! I came into research this morning, and was told I made some mistakes the previous day. T_T I felt really awful about it and kind of lost my appetite, so I decided to skip lunch and do homework/study for my physics quiz in the afternoon. The studying paid off but I know I really should have eaten a meal earlier today. Here’s hoping next week will turn out so much more smooth. Honestly, I’ve been trying really hard but messing up so much because this was my first week doing it alone and some instructions are so vague to me. I don’t want to disappoint anyone, including myself. I think I got the hang of it – I just need to keep it together next week.

Stay strong!
