So February 15, the day after Valentine’s Day, is known as Singles Awareness Day. I renamed it Singles Empowerment Day because the acronym for the former is just not cool. Once again, I woke to Chester on my stomach. On Saturdays, I typically get up at around 7 or 8. I was eager to work off those V-Day carbs I took in Friday night, so I stretched and went to the gym for my run. Normally, I prefer to run outside, but with the 28-degree weather, as Bartleby would say, “I prefer not to.”
After my run, I headed over to the Food Lion for some of that half-price V-Day candy. I got the last chocolate on the rack, a bag of Lindt’s White Chocolate Truffles. From there, I headed home and graded topic proposals for my Written Communication II classes’ research proposals, after which I got my monthly massage to soothe my tight muscles.
After this, I send grades to the students in my Blogging course, as well as the comments they’re required to provide on others’ blogs. I was very happy to see students engaging with each others’ blogs.
After this, I watched an episode of Better Call Saul and worked on my book for a C50, as Christina would call it. That’s a fifty-minute writing session. Nicole’s been providing some kickass edits on my book, and she guided me toward expanding some areas and citing more of Bella’s work in my concepts (you’ll have to read to find out).
After my session, I took a powernap and picked up my close friend Maggie to see a Grateful Dead tribute band called Suggesting Rhythm in Richmond. For that experience, you’ll need to read my blog on my other site. All I’ll say here is that it was a kickass time. I got home at around 1 a.m., watched another Better Call Saul episode, and crashed out with Chester on my stomach.
It was a great day to be single!
My name is Craig. I'm an educator, writer, and unapologetic singleton. When not reading, writing, or teaching, I enjoy hiking, running, watching movies, going to concerts, spending time with friends, and playing with my cat/son, Chester.
