Today was kind if terrible. I wasn’t efficient. I was tired and hungry all day. Experiment failed. I couldn’t read well. I didn’t get much done. I beat myself up all evening after not being able to remember part of a conversation I had with my advisor last month- and failed to email him after trying to write it for an hour instead of going to the gym. I bought a horrible peach salsa unintentionally at the store. Didn’t eat much for dinner. Went out to do my laundry. Got my haircut just before the place closed. I feel like nothin is going well for me just now (stylish haircut aside). Will anything ever change? It doesn’t seem possible right now. What is wrong with me? Obviously something. 


This has been a rough couple of days. I know everyone has them, I’m just feeling particularly down trodden and can’t see much light anywhere. Ugh. 

I hope things start looking up.
