If All The Skies

I feel like the walking dead right now. It is 10:24am on a
Saturday. Usually around this time I just getting up or I'm
sleeping. But not today, today I had to wake my happy ass
up at 6:30am so I could be to work on time at 8am.
Uggghhhh! I work until 3pm....4 and a half more hours....I
think I'm going to cry...I feel like shit and I'm about to
fall asleep. I'm debating whether or not to go to mum's
house either today after work or tomorrow for her birthday.
Since I don't have a present for her it just seems kinda
pointless to go over there and waste the gas. I know that
sounds bad but seriously I'm pinching pennies at this point
and gas is too fucking expensive right now. I asked Amond
whether they were planning anything for her birthday and he
said it was a secret....okay, it's not my birthday so he
could let me in on it. But I guess Rhys told him that or
something...I don't know, my brain isn't working right now.
I went to the gym yesterday and had my best treadmill
workout ever. I ran 4.2 miles nonstop and 4.6 miles
altogether with the cooldown. Usually I have to stop around
3miles but I just kept on going. It was cool. Afterwards I
did some ab work and I met Jennifer there and she showed me
how to do use the big workout balls. The ones that you can
lay on and are like the size of beach balls. I tried some
situps on them but I think I prefer the regular ones, I
wasn't too impressed by them. I was impressed by all the
hot guys there though. I think that's my only motivation
for going to that gym. For the next two weeks I work during
the morning shift and get off around 4:30pm-6:30pm so I
think I'm going to start going to the gym after work. I
only go there to work on the treadmill (and check out hot
gi's) and imagine if I ran at least 4 miles a day...that's
about 630 calories, 4 or 5 days a week for two weeks
straight. Plus my usual pilates workout everyday...I'm
going to be looking damn good this summer! Hell yeah. So, I
think that'll be the new plan. And that works because the
gym is on the way home so I won't be going out of my way
and wasting gas either (remember pinching pennies). Cool

Anywho, time for the poem of the day. I love it because to
me it's saying that sameness becomes tedious and dull after
awhile and diversity is what makes life grand....and/or it
illustrates just how fickle humanity is. Even when given
something as idealistic as perpetual happiness, we soon
crave some drama and sorrow to break the monotony. This is
how we operate. I know too many people that want to be
happy and yet they consistently sabotage themselves....I
think I'm one of those people. Later.

If All The Skies
by Henry Van Dyke

If all the skies were sunshine,
Our faces would be fain
To feel once more upon them
The cooling splash of rain.

If all the world were music,
Our hearts would often long
For one sweet strain of silence,
To break the endless song.

If life were always merry,
Our souls would seek relief,
And rest from weary laughter
In the quiet arms of grief.
