donuts and hand mixers and smoothies.

Sometimes we have stupid days.

Today my body ached and wanted me to just take a nap.  Today I wasn't quite as cheerful and excited to help people at work.  Today I didn't get to see very much of my favorite professors at work.  I didn't realize how much that bums me out, but it really does.  Today the air conditioning wasn't working in one of my classrooms and it was one million hot and it felt gross.  Today I didn't want to go to my spin class but I did it anyway.

And then after spin I told myself I was worth it and I went to Jamba Juice.  And I could tell that the poor girl who was working there was brand new and it was busy and she wasn't exactly sure what she was supposed to be doing and her coworker wasn't exactly being super supportive and helpful (although I'm sure she was just trying to make sure the work got done).  And I was just sitting there and I was like, this is so silly.  I shouldn't even be grumpy or upset.  Everyone has dumb days and this girl is probably having a way dumber day than me.  So I tried to be super helpful and when she got flustered I just tried to tell her that everything was fine and that she was doing great and that however she was making my smoothie was just fine.  And even though it was a slightly different smoothie than I was used to, I actually kind of felt better about it and I think I enjoyed it more than most any other smoothie I've ever had.  Because sometimes people need our help more than we need them to help us.

And then I came home and Danielle was like, "I figured that maybe you were having a crappy day like I am and so I got you donuts."  And holy cow, if you know me at all, you know that I think donuts are the literal greatest thing ever invented. I love donuts. I can't express that to you enough the extent to which I love donuts (see examples here and here). I mean, really.  And in case you didn't already know, Danielle is one of the coolest roommates ever.  Even when she is having a crappy day, she still takes time to think about me and does nice things for me. Oh, and yeah also.  She bought me a hand mixer today for when she gets married and moves out.  You GUYS. Seriously. So cool.

Also, I read this post today and I just think this woman is awesome.  It's a post about motherhood mostly, but I feel like it's applicable to a lot of life, so I just thought I'd share it.

Anyway, this is kind of a scatterbrained post and I'm sorry about that but these are the things I wanted to say today so I said them, so BAM.

The end.
