I set out this morning with the best of intentions to get right to studying. It hasn’t happened yet. I have been, instead, applying shade film to the windows in the office, cleaning up dog puke, washing towels, and listening to music. I know. I should be studying, but I really just needed a break.
The windows in the office needed the film, badly, because it gets really warm in there in the afternoons. We put the window film on our old house, and it made a drastic difference to the heat in the rooms that faced west as well as a noticeable difference in our electric bills. It’s worth the money, and after you get the hang of it, it takes about 10 minutes to apply it to each window. Thankfully this time, all four window panes were the same exact size, so I was able to just cut the film and apply it without much effort or cursing. The first window I did at the old house looked like crud, because it’s an art form, really, and I was wasn’t much of an artist in that regard.
Which brings me to dog puke. My dog hates her heartworm medicine. Like to the point of puking every single time I give it to her. It doesn’t matter if I feed her before or not. It doesn’t matter if I crush it up and give it to her with peanut butter or marshmallows. It doesn’t matter that a box of the little pills costs $90 at the vet. None of this matters. She still barfs them up. So I have to get another one and then try to make it stay down. It’s a pain. I’m going to the vet and going to trade this stuff out. I can’t go through this again next month, and I certainly don’t want to put her through it anymore. I hate it, because this is the type with flea prevention. Oh well.
Washing towels is pretty self-explanatory. I just cleaned up dog puke. I needed to wash towels.
Music. I swear if I could wear headphones at work through every meeting and everything else, I would be a different person. Music changes my life. It makes me feel good. It makes me smile. A few songs make me cry. Overall, it brings out emotions and makes me feel alive. I don’t ever want to be without music.
Now, as this song ends and my time on here ends, I know the inevitable studying begins again. I just hope I pass the first time so that I can move on with the rest of my life!
