Sometimes

Sometimes I need to take a mental health day, to remind myself that I am much more than a university student, that I thrive reading novels in a clean house, that the air in September is more like ginger ale than it will be for another year, that I do not want to crack, that my body can do things it couldn't do before, that my notebook waits for me, that I've been meaning to paint my toenails red, that cutting flowers and mixing batter are restorative activities to a modern person, that I need to experience solitude on a regular basis, that there may be mail today...
