This morning I have a bunch of stuff that I'm thinking about, so here goes.
Today I have an appointment with the dermatologist. I have been blessed with the good teeth from my father's side of the family, but unfortunately I have also been "blessed" with the bad skin. It's under control now and I'm happy with my skin, but high school was horrible. Having acne is a far worse problem than you'd ever imagine if you've never had to deal with it. Sure, a zit here and there is part of life but having it all the time SUCKS. I tear up when I watch Proactive commercials because I know what it's like for those people.
Tonight I am going to visit my brother and my dog; my mom is in Egypt, so I have to make sure that my brother is watering the plants and that my dog is doing ok. He is an old, blind dog and he is my baby. I am so excited to visit him.
My brother and I are going to see the new Star Trek on IMAX tonight. I don't even *like* Star Trek but I've heard really good things about the movie. I figured I might as well see it on IMAX if I'm going to be right near one anyway.
I'm going to try to get a little run in this afternoon/evening around town. There are no bears around my mom's house, so I can run in the evening without worrying about a bear coming to get me. Around my house, not so much. A bear could pop out at any time. And even though I know black bears are kind of scared of people anyway, there's something about a 200+ pound animal that is just a little frightening.
I discovered a HUGE eating trigger for me - procrastination. I wrote a paper last night after procrastinating with almonds, Wasa crackers, raisins, turkey breast, etc. Nothing really horrible for me, but just too much of it. I need to learn to just do my work and get it over with.
Off to brush my teeth and get on the road. Happy Friday!
