Have you ever had one of those days where things just seem to go really well? I don't have many of them, but I think karma is trying to make up for the disaster that was last week.

Today, I went to Borders to study with a couple of kids from my chemistry class since we were supposed to have homework due tomorrow and a test on Wednesday. We studied for about an hour and came upon a problem that was just kicking our butts. We had no idea where to even begin. We ended up calling our professor and professing our complete and utter frustration with said problem. He laughed and said 'Didn't you see the announcement, the test was pushed back until next week, and the homework isn't due until Wednesday.' Well, with the pressure off, we studied half-heartedly for another half an hour, but eventually tapered off to where we just started talking. It's been a while since I just relaxed and BSed with friends. I spent more time laughing tonight than I have in a while. We were reciting snippets of Monty Python's The Holy Grail, and listening to David proclaim that even though he liked the Gilmore Girls, he was still straight and very manly. It was fun to goof off, and just, I don't know, forget the mountain of homework that I still had to complete. David, being the sweetheart that he is, even bought the three of us a piece of the most delicious chocolate cake in the world to share. Four hours later, we finally vacated our seats and headed home. The tension in my shoulders was gone for the first time in quite a while.

So, I get home and sit down to do my physics homework, which is never a nice prospect. Generally, I am lucky to get 70% of it completed. Physics just kicks my butt, and it's very difficult to teach myself (taking an online course was not one of my best moves). Tonight, I sat down, and actually understood everything, and managed to finish my homework, in less than an hour, and get the right answers for everything. Holy hell. I may even volunteer to do a recitation tomorrow.

Then, Dr. C called me, and we talked for a couple of hours. It is so nice to hear her genuinely happy for a change. I was afraid that when she moved we would drift apart, but every other Sunday, like clockwork, her number has appeared on my caller ID. While I miss her like crazy, I can't help but be happy simply because she is so happy. I think I am going try and visit her during the Christmas holidays.

Tonight was such a contrast to last week at this time where I was stressed to the breaking point. I was up until almost two in the morning studying, and the I got back up at five thirty to study some more. I then got to spend thirteen hours at school, practically sleep walking through the day. Today, however, I just feel...well, I feel good.
