it's been five weeks since the day that switched the time on my alarm clock, the number of showers i would take in a week and the number of deadlines i was working against. i know my dog better and my niece better than i did then. i know how my hair looks after a day of not washing it. i know how to stretch one meal to last all week - for lunch and for dinner. i know that if i don't go to the gym 6 out of 7 days right now, i will go insane. i know that i don't have a bruised lung and i am not looking forward to the bill for the x-ray. i know that i wait until at least 4 before i turn on the television. i know that there aren't enough jobs out there for everyone who needs them. i know that i'm dehydrated, but i can't figure out why.
