Today was a good day. I've chosen to lead with that because days are always unassuming. You start it without knowing how it will end, or what could happen in the middle. But today was a good day.

It's been awhile since I've had good days. I mean, really good days. Days when very little go wrong, the fight that you've fought so hard trying to win just gets a little easier that day, people are nicer, everything just feels... Right. The start of this year has been absolute shit, to say the least. And I'm not saying things will get better from here, because I'm a pessimist so I expect bad things to happen and when they don't, when I get good days like these, I'm not in the moment to appreciate it because I'm just waiting for the next bad thing to happen. But today I'm in the moment. And this could be the calm before the storm, but the next time something bad happens, which could be tomorrow or in two hours (I told you I'm a pessimist), I will remember I had this one good day which can sometimes make the other 700 bad days make you feel less like wanting to kill yourself.

Today I met a Russian customer and spent 20 minutes talking to her about Russian literature.

I also had a burrito for dinner.

Good day.
