Is this what you call a funk?

I've been in a strange sort of mood today. I feel restless and lazy all at the same time. I am craving to read. To read a really good book that I can get lost in. My mom has nothing to read around here. 

I'm ready to get home back to my normal routine. I'm thinking about all the stuff left undone at my new apartment, all the other things I'd like to do before school starts in February.

So what did I do today? Did I write in my journal? No! It's not that I'm at a loss for words. I've got a list of items that I keep to write about sometime. Did I write about them? No! I guess I feel too restless to give any of the topics justice. I did watch the movie Seabiscuit today. I fell asleep while watching it. Actually, I've slept most of the day. But, I saw enough of the movie that I want to get the book and read it too.

I go back to Debbie's tomorrow and I leave for Los Angeles on Saturday. I guess it's time. Time for this respite to be over, time for my life to continue, to really begin the new year and not exist in limbo anymore.

Some days are meant for funks. Sounds like a perfect day - no responsibilities, the chance to rest, contemplation... And Seabiscuit? Don't you think that's the kind of movie you'd fall asleep to any day? :P Well - Happy New Year again :)

Well, it seems I'm not alone in my funk!
My virtual mood ring is black today, with
occasional turns to purple, so I think I'm
going back to bed...
Love ya, Penny

I read Seabiscuit and fell in love with a horse! can you believe it! A horse. The movie was good, but the book is great.

I agree with Freee! Some days ARE meant for funk! It's jsut natural that every now and then you're gonna feel less than your best about pretty much everything. Hey, if everything were always hunky dorey, what would we have to compare the good times too? :-)

Bibliomania is a good site for complete classic novels online; not sure if you're into classics but it's a free site that offers them for reading. I agree with freee over there, sometimes you just have to feel what you feel. Ride it out, and it'll be all uphill from there. Have a safe trip back to L.A.!
