This afternoon I felt like maybe, just maybe, I was on the verge of cracking.
The cracking action came when I realized that my ipod that I had put into the front pocket of the large bag I use for school this morning during my Abnormal Psychology class was no longer there... or anywhere. It was either yanked... or it fell out at some point while I was trekking around campus (along with 5,000 other poor college students who would just LOVE a free ipod).
I'm trying not to be frustrated. I know it's replaceable. I know it's absolutely not the end of the world. It's just that sometimes when the small joys of your day are taken away (and for me, music is definitely a happy part of my day) it tends to make the bigger, harder things a little more unbearable.
I don't know. I guess you never know what might show up. Maybe one of those 5,000 poor college students will take pity and turn in that stellar ipod they "found" instead of jamming out to my tunes.
So, I'll try not to crack, and maybe now, instead of listening to music in my car, or while studying, or while running, or while reading.... well, maybe I can try humming. I hear that helps you make friends.
