Anatomy of a day

7:45 a.m. Wake up, go for a run, eat Raisin Bran and have a cup of coffee (start to a healthy, productive day) Kiss husband goodbye, he heads to work

Shower, and dress

9:30 a.m. Drive to Kinko's to utilize their state-of-the-art printing and copying services, thus ensuring I have clear and legible copies of my resume and other career-gaining documents

10:30 a.m. Arrive at local, hip coffeeshop with computer and positive outlook, look at the others there with their computers and positive outlooks, shirking the traditional 9-5 grind, and think "I have always wanted to be one of these people"

Order cup of coffee and proceed to get down to work

1 p.m. Have lunch with a good friend, eat salad, outside, under an umbrella, complete with brilliant conversation

2:30 p.m. Realize, unfortunately, I have to go back to Kinko's for lack of certain, important documents

3 p.m. Fight masses of newly returned students on Franklin St., notice severe lack of quarters and thus, must return home or I cannot park in town that fails to realize free parking would be, well, nice

3:30 p.m. Return to town equipped with change

Return to Kinko's

Print 12 billion copies of various documents, since every version seems to need a new correction

Discard imperfect copies in recycling bins

Finally depart with what seems like a miniscule reward for such dedication to the cause

4:30 Arrive back home, hungry, eat many crackers and cheese after meaning to only eat a couple of crackers and cheese, but they were just so good, and what the hell, I did a lot of work

Polish off with leftover gummy bears

Sit, sullen, on couch, wondering what I'm going to do with my life

Turn on television

Realize that despite the fact that Lifetime has removed the 6-7 p.m. showing of back to back episodes of "The Golden Girls," thus sort of ruining my world, they are showing the program from 4-5 p.m.

Watch a little because it's so good

It starts to rain

I like the rain so I feel a little better, and the rain also helps it seem more legitimate that I'm sitting inside relaxing, when I really should not be relaxing ever but instead pursuing something amazing and worthwhile

5 p.m. Decide to make tea, because tea, in addition to "The Golden Girls," and the rain, makes me feel better

Feel better

Assess day's accomplishments

Reason that, despite being relatively non-thrilling, perhaps day's accomplishments were, just maybe, worthwhile, and perhaps even fairly amazing
