What kind of day it's been. [119/365]

What kind of day it's been. [119/365]
This has not been my day. I couldn’t sleep a wink, and out of sheer boredom got up at 5am and watched Syriana. That is NOT a good way to start your day. Add to that the pinched nerve I somehow got while tossing and turning, and the cold I can’t quite shake, and I feel quite a mess.

Worst of all, though, is that I’m experiencing vocal fatigue, not something you want when you’re acting in a musical. I’m gonna have to be really careful for the next two weeks.

Suffice to say, I didn’t want to go to my dark broody place for today’s shot, but that’s just what kind of day it’s been. I’m just very very tired.

(on the BRIGHT side: this is the third day in a row I’ve gotten a picture up for the 365. That’s a first since I took a break back in May! Small victory yes, but a VICTORY.)

I’m home alone while my parents search for houses 3 states away…I don’t care where I live but have to leave my fantastic drs-& was told ‘we won’t move until we find a great dr’ yet all research has been on houses & little to none on doctors. My badder from interstitial cystitis (IC) feels like claws are rubbing broken glass into my bladder, while my pinched nerve keeps me awake & hurting. Sorry this is so depressing, but this place is the only place I can be completely real
