So, I've managed to make myself completely depressed today which sucks because the day started out soooo promising. (I TOTALLY WON $10,000 fake dollars on my Jeopardy app before I even got out of bed.)
I got to Starbucks, and they didn't have the yogurt I wanted. And the picture of the Spinach Feta wrap on their order board looked way more delicious than I know the real thing looks. I wasn't in the mood for an ugly wrap...so I skipped on breakfast. Depressing.
Then, I got an email from Target telling me that my ho-hum business wardrobe was SO 2012. I clicked the link (because who wants to be ho-hum or SO 2012), but they were just joking...they don't have non-ho-hum styles for plus sized women. At this point, I started to look at skinny clothes and look forward to the day I'll wear them, but all of the models were standing like this. I don't even want to be skinny anymore if it means I have to stand like that. It's not adorable. Depressing.
Then, I went to Panera with my friend. I had a free pastry/cookie/treat on my Panera Rewards Card, so I go the Candy Cookie (that's "grown-up" for M & M Cookie). I took it back to the office. I ate it. I looked up the calories after the fact. Bad idea. I think the cookie had more calories than my entire lunch. Depressing.
Then, I was thinking about my future. My family's future. I thought, "I'll throw together a spreadsheet to show a debt pay-off snowball so we can maximize our savings!" Such! A great! Idea! Not. Because after I realized that my student loan will be there forever, I decided to shift my focus to retirement. I need $4M to retire at 65 according to my calculations. I have, like, 30 years to do that, right? So I put pen to paper to see how much I need to start putting away each month for retirement. $4600. For realz. Depressing.
So, I had to resort to a little Blog Therapy. And in doing so, I rediscovered how rainbows are made, and that's all I needed to turn my frown upside down.
