Tonight on our walk, I was playing through the next few weekends, and I have something fun and exciting planned almost every weekend until the second weekend in June. Woah, baby. I have my school stuff scheduled out, but the time to rest and be by myself still needs to be written in; otherwise, I'll end up crashing in the middle of the week, which is less than ideal. As I was justifying my plan, I told Richard, "Well, I'll be out of school in May, and I don't think I'll be working, so I'll have time to rest then," and he said to me, "You know you're entitled to a break sometimes, right?"
Of course. Maybe. No. Yeah, definitely. I totally am. I think.
I didn't answer his question with much confidence, but I knew he was right. Even thinking back to Saturday when I messed up the relay exchanges, I don't give myself a break often, and that's not fair to me. So, for the next few months as I'm staying busy almost every weekend and trying to balance a lot of awesomeness at once, my reminder to myself will be that I'm entitled to a break sometimes, and so is everyone else, which means I also need to be gracious in giving breaks to others.

Something that made today great: I came home for lunch with Richard and Scooter!
Time I woke up: 8:30 am
