Lately I’ve been feeling like a hamster in a cage. I have my cedar chip bed, my bowls of water and food, and my hamster wheel.
That fucking hamster wheel.
Yesterday would’ve been my 6th workout in 7 days but the thought of going to the gym repulsed me so I opted to stay home. I needed a break. Plus I had my carpets cleaned yesterday so I needed to start moving my furniture back into place.
Today I had to do something to lift my spirits a bit. After spending most of the day reading up about event tracking in Google Analytics, at 4:30 I decided I needed a brain break. I grabbed my wallet and my sweater and I headed for the elevators.
It was a beautiful day. The sun came out for the first time since the day after the last time it snowed so I took a stroll over to the bakery down the street, picked up my favorite little cake, and walked over to the park.
It was a ritual I adopted a few weeks ago before the frozen precipitation invaded the area. I sat down on a park bench and I enjoyed my cake and the nice weather. This reminded me of what I love about my life.
I love that I can be by myself sometimes, or surrounded by friends other times. I love the fact that I work at a company where I can take a break in the middle of a taxing day and enjoy the outdoors for a bit. I love sitting on a park bench, basking in the warmth of the sun while people watching.
