 Thursday night was not good by any standards, but it is over.  Things could have been much worse than they were, and I got back on my scooter again tonight.  I asked the doctor today and he said it was okay but the meds I was on might slow my reaction times.

Now, I've actually been in a really good mood. I'm not going to worry about why this is. I'm just going to appreciate it. I've got some great people in my life, including some of the people reading this. I'm slowly bringing up my quantitative reasoning grades after buying the pencils designed for pret t-schoolers.  I'm managing to hide my extreme dislike for networking fundamentals, and I have a Raspberry Pi to play with. (Now, if someone would port one of the open source Amiga OS clones over to it. This former Commodore fan girl can use the operating system she feels she missed but should have used.)

I know it's not as exciting as it could be, but given the ups and downs I've been through for the past two years, I thought it would be a good idea to take some out and do some positive posts.  

Speaking of positive things, I've seen posters around campus saying, "I'm not your inspiration. I'm your neighbor/co-worker/classmate." I thought it was odd to see something arguing against inspiration porn, a term I never thought I would have had any reason to learn, on the boards.  I don't know if this applies to me, but I know plenty of people who would like to see more things like this, and not just on college campuses. One of my biggest complaints about many people who have valid societal criticisms is they keep doing Ivory Tower criticism. There is nothing wrong with this, but it does limit their audience.

In any case, I hope this good mood continues.   It's nice to not have the wild mood swings that came with hypothyroidism. I'lll try to ignore that Trump is still president as much as I can.
