Never did get the hang of Thursdays

Feel the love?

I’m sure there will come a day in the not too distant future when I will have to work a little harder to come up with a photo of the day. I quit trying to do the photo challenges and decided just to go with found photo-worthy moments for this year. I’ve taken up attempting to murder my feet with walking as a hobby this year, so I have to cut back some on my other activities. Snapping a phone shot of whatever I see is definitely quicker than using the real camera and setting up something to shoot. Even so, there are bound to be days when I will have no choice but to set something up. The moments will not come to me every time. Today was not yet that day. Some thoughtful students left this rock message on my normal walking track today just so that I would have to think up something to take a picture of, or so it felt like to me. I do appreciate it. I can feel the love.

Otherwise, this Thursday, like most of them seem to be, was a real bear. I always feel like Arthur Dent from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy on Thursdays. Arthur so famously says that he “never got the hang of Thursdays,” and I know just what he means. If I got to vote on the matter, I’d vote that Thursdays count as Fridays because no one should be expected to show up at the office for one more day after surviving a Thursday. Of course, if I got to vote, I’d also vote that Tuesdays count as Mondays, but this sort of work week is call the part-time job you get after your retire from your real job and suddenly realize your life savings never quite saved up to expectations.

Anyway, it was a Thursday, and I made it through. There are only about four more of them before spring break. I can do this. I think I can. I think I can.
