for a little while longer at least.
I’m in a reasonably good mood, despite the cold I’m clearly carrying around with me. In particular, I’m feeling optimistic about money and papers.
This is not, as one might have otherwise suspected, a matter of some particularly paradigm-twisting change in my plans or situation. Instead it’s the kind of optimism that comes from sunlight and a day at work—the knowledge that money is coming your way and that it might just be enough at the end of the day. My lovely SO is right—there is a certain joy to be had in the realm of self-discipline.
