Late yesterday afternoon I had coffee with a colleague at the uni, I thought I ordered my usual drink of a decaf Americano with hot milk as I’m quite sensitive to caffeine and know having caffeine after about 2pm will mean that I’m awake most of the night, well I was awake most of the night so either I didn’t ask for decaf (quite likely as we were chatting away as I ordered it) or the server got it wrong. Either way, I was wired during the night and struggled to sleep, adding to the fact that my knee is particularly painful at the moment so also keeps me awake, today has been a long arse day!!
It was a uni lecturing day and I’d arranged a trip for the students so was a bit pissed off when only 2 turned up (the cohort is only 4 anyway). Perhaps it’s an age thing but feel like they let great opportunities pass them by for what I think are silly excuses and I find this frustrating as I put time and effort in to enhance my delivery with guest speakers and trips and they are kind of don’t seem to appreciate it! I won’t stop doing it as that’s what I do but there are times like today when I’m tired that I do wonder why I make the effort!
Went to see a friend tonight, as I drove to hers I was awestruck by the moon, it was spectacular, I had to pull over and try to get a picture of it as just wanted to share what I’d seen. I think that the universe is great at giving you signs when you most need to see them and tonight was one of those nights when seeing the moon in all it’s glory, it’s a reminder that life is amazing and if you just stop, look and see it for what it is, stripped bare and as it should be you will know that everything will work out alright in the end.
