February 11, 2011

because i didn't even need caffeine.

Today I woke up absolutely bursting with energy--with can't-sit-still, can't-contain-it excitement for my radio reading later this morning, for the chance to spend time with my sister tonight, and for a friend's birthday celebration tomorrow... (One that promises to be more or less epic thanks to our nerdy matching t-shirts and the fact that Screech from Saved by the Bell is hosting a party across the street. True story.)

And I realized that so much of this energy, of this eagerness, has to do with simply doing something different--simply stepping out of routine. I'm quite the creature of habit--to say the least--and switching up my day always seems to have this exhilarating sort of effect on me. Which is to say, of course, that I should probably do it (much) more often.

Huge thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement yesterday-- wishing you all a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend!
