glass half full

I am so tired. My eyes are sore, my brain feels slow and groggy. I felt so refreshed after letting myself take most of the day off on Saturday, and now after a few days of studying I am exhausted again. I will be so very relieved when this prelim crap is over. I really do love what I am studying, but also loathe exams. I am trying to stay positive, but when I let my mind wander to the possibility of not passing, (beyond thinking about how terrible that would be) I think that at least I'll get to spend more time learning the material even more thoroughly... What doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right? I guess I am just one of those "glass half full" people to the core. Jo is home! After a train ride home delayed by a mere 8 hours... and her ride to NY was also delayed by 4 hours. She won't be taking Amtrak again. She is cursing their name. Next time, she'll fly. Renting a car and driving would have even been less stressful, cheaper, and faster! We are going out to eat tonight- to just catch up, spend some time together, and to celebrate the fact her album was released internationally yesterday! Oh yeah, did I mention my insomnia is back? The last 2 nights- even when I do sleep I wake up feeling like I haven't. Jo brought some lush stuff back from NY, so maybe I will try a relaxing bath before bed tonight (instead of what I have been doing before turning out the light- trying to read as much as possible to squeeze the most out of the day). That might do the trick. Sorry this is a boring post. That's just the way it is right now.
