Weekend Reads: On to the next one

Guys. This week had it in for me. I knew it was going to be tough--it's the last full week Obama is president so I was bound to be emotional, tear-stained, and down in the dumps. BUT, it seems that every little thing has amped up and made this week feel worse--sticky situations, things I forgot about and got called on, friends angry with me for things that feel out of my control, interpersonal work consternation, impending work insanity for projects I'm not jazzed about, family who thinks I'm not accessible enough, trying to fit everything in before classes start back up and ending up with an incredibly jam-packed, stressful weekend on the horizon (it's a 3-day weekend! What gives?! Snowstorm last weekend killed me). I thought Mercury must be in retrograde, but it wasn't. So, deep breath. Maybe the middle of the month will be my turning point. I'm having dinner with my friends tonight and looking for that boost. They always lift me up. Then off to the races...
