Day 195 – Amazing day


Last night, after finishing up a story and going to bed at 3 am, I had a feeling today was going to be amazing. With only four hours of sleep, I stumbled into the kitchen this morning planning to have breakfast before going to work. My plan kind of failed, because the only thing my body was able to do, was to remain numb on the chair, thinking that if maybe he would stay still long enough, I would give up and get it back into the comfort of the bed. Though luck, I pushed my limbs forward and had to grab a doughnut as breakfast from the bar, which made me loose my bus. So, because of all those things and also falling asleep on the bus twice, I said to myself how can I possibly think this day is going to be amazing?

Well, it was. As soon as I started teaching my first class, I felt this wave of energy invading me and I played with the kids in my class for two hours straight. We almost missed the break at some point, being so focused on playing and building good stories together and I bet they had so much fun today that they will wish for me to be sleepy on every Saturday morning from now on.

After a very nice lunch in a new place, having nice company and a pleasant catching up conversation, I had to convince my body to stay alive for a little longer, in order to get through the next four hours of work. I had to explain to it over and over again, that today is not about getting through the working hours, but about trying to have as much fun as possible while working, so we can make it until tonight. It was all about tonight.

Tonight was to be our first outing together without Ephia, among good friends and good food. It was to be about holding hands and not think of anything else, about spending two hours away from ourselves, but within everything else. I had so much fun tonight and although now my eyes are desperately trying to stop my hands from moving back and forward on the keyboard, I think it was all worth it. Have an amazing weekend and a lazy Sunday. 🙂
