02.21.16 – End of Day Notes

What I did today: Much of the same, I am afraid. Although, I did get up very early this morning around 4:30 am. Did some of my writing projects then crawled back into bed around 10-ish. During the late afternoon and early evening, I gazed longingly outside at the rising fog. The entire neighborhood was engulfed in it and you could barely see a foot in front of yourself. There is something supremely beautiful about a misty, rainy day with ravens cawing in the background. I enjoyed numerous “gap” moments as a result. I so love that kind of weather. I read some emails, some posts from challenges, and finally I am watching old Film Noir movies for research. A fairly boring, but typical day for me.

What I learned today: When it comes to books, I am a sucker for a discount.

What I am most proud of today: Not sure I am very proud of myself for anything today. Early this morning, I spent my entire book allowance for the next 2 months on 5 books from Amazon. I felt completely out of control and chided myself afterwards for spending nearly $40. It could have been worse, far worse if I’d had the money, so I should be proud of myself for not dipping into my savings to go completely overboard. They are books I’ve wanted for a while and I did purchase all 5 of them used. Still, the cost of shipping for each book was atrocious. All from separate bookstores. Now to remind myself for the next two months that I cannot purchase anymore, not even e-books.

What did you do today? Learn any lessons? Have a reason to be proud? Share your thoughts with me in the comments!
