I've been so pissed off for the last month or so now, which happens every winter, and now that I have a race to look forward to, I'm happy again. I'm so happy that I went to IHOP for breakfast this morning. I don't even like IHOP that much. But I have so much to look forward to in the coming year that I can't help just loving everything right now. I've got an enormously daunting season of racing ahead (must get Cat. 2 upgrade ASAP!) that will be ever competing with my enormously daunting spring semester of school. I've got a couple of chances to go swing dancing in the next month (yay! get to buy a new dress at Ross), a friend's wedding this summer (another new dress . . .), and, er, I'm sure there will be other happy occasions which don't necessitate dress purchase. Oh yes! New road bike . . . pretty Kona . . . drool . . . but no need to purchase formal wear. And lots of puppy love.
