Oops! I got busy and forgot to write my daily gratutudes. I could go back and post-date some, but I'd rather do some reading for this Saturday's exam.

  1. I am grateful that my extra word in German has translated into a 95% on the verbal component of my mid-term examination.
  2. I am grateful for the time that the internet saves me during research and extra course work. Especially for foreign languages, the internet gives access  to amazing resources.
  3. I am grateful for the freedom to say nearly whatever I like, without fear of persecution. Mostly.

In class this evening, my professor who by day is a clinical child-psychologist re-challenged us to try the 3 gratitudes method of increasing positive affect. I sort of scoffed at the idea on the inside, I think because of the [long pause] on reflection I don't know why.

At the end of that same class, I made reference to #neknomination and how I would like to see it turned around in to a force for good. Apparently I'm a bit disconnected because this has already been done and redone as, among other things, #RAKnomination.

Here are the three things that I'm grateful for today!

  1. The opportunity to go to school every day.
  2. That it's almost spring, and I will be able to resume gardening soon!
  3. That tomorrow's exam isn't until the afternoon. I don't like morning exams.

That's all for the day! I hope you enjoy reading my gratitudes, and are inspired to write some of your own.
