Have a Good Day

I’ve been pretty depressed the past few weeks. I think it’s a combination of the winter weather, the stress from work, and missing everyone at home. Last night, I ran into my foreign coworkers after work and we chatted for a bit. Then, I just started crying in the middle of the fucking street. Not exactly sure what prompted it, but I was just really upset. We all went for dinner at this little Japanese place and talked for a while. It helped a bit.

This morning, I woke up and made the executive decision to have a good day.

The first thing I did was go for a haircut. I’m trying to grow it out, but I desperately needed a trim. Haircuts do for me what manicures do for Elle Woods. Feeling shitty? Get a haircut. Starting a new job? Get a haircut. Any mundane reason ever? Get a haircut.

Then, I decided to head over to my favorite cafe for breakfast. To my surprise, my favorite croquette (potato and vegetable), which I thought had been taken off the menu, was back! I picked the plumpest one I could find and ate it as I took a walk up the road. On the way, I saw one of my students who greeted me with a very enthusiastic “TIA TEACHER!” That was nice.

Despite the cold, I walked to Etude House (one of my favorite beauty shops), and treated myself to a new face cleanser (Baking Powder Cleansing Foam Moist), gold glitter nail polish (#107 in the Play line), and a new blush. I also got some free samples. Always a plus!

Hopefully, today’s good mood will continue for the remainder of the day.

  1. I like your executive decision to have a better day. Sorry you’re feeling sad and frustrated. The cold weather doesn’t help, and it sounds like the support you need in the workplace isn’t there. Its always good if you can find someone to talk to about it, so thanks for sharing your feelings. I’m far away, Tia, but I’m in your corner. ::hug::
