I got a bad start this morning. I woke up late (again) but not late enough to miss any class. I was there a few minutes after 8 and settled in for a critique on our "Strip Studies Phase 2 with Texture." Blah. I soon was in a daze, probably drooling and incoherantly staring at some smattering of texture and line in a 6"x6" square. The class continued in a rather slow and dreary manner. It just felt gray. I woke up feeling gray. I don't like gray.

So after class I decided I needed to start over. I went home, got back in bed, closed my eyes for a few minutes, opened them, got up, and took a shower. After the shower I got ready for the day and acted as if I was going to my first class of the day. It worked. I was upbeat, ready to fight off any foe or demon that crossed my path.

I think pretending to be asleep is key. I completely restarted and it was probably the best decision of my day.

What a good remedy for a gray morning! Kind of like the movie "Groundhog's Day."
