Yesterday I had a case of Ennui. If you haven't seen Gilmore Girls for the excellent explanation of this affliction, let me explain: It's when you have an off day and nothing seems to be able to cheer you up. The thing is, is that I've had these days before but, I can always pinpoint the reason for why I feel that way. But for the first time, I'm just really happy. I thought that maybe just taking a nap would help me feel better, but every time I crawled into bed, I couldn't get to sleep. So I spent most of my day trying to sleep and when I finally did get out of bed I tried to pick up around the house a bit but just couldn't get motivated. So I talked to my friend Jessica and she said that maybe taking a walk would help. It was getting late, but I was just going to take a walk around our neighborhood. I got outside and walking wasn't helping so I decided to run. Now I am by NO means a runner. I sincerely dislike running. But for some reason, the run was great! It was just what I needed to get rid of my ennui. After my run I was finally able to go to sleep and wake up feeling at least a little refreshed. Today I'm determined to have a better more productive day!
