Taking time to do what I want

I had the day off. I need to work again tomorrow so I'm in Aarhus at my sister's. I got to sleep in, then had a call with my boss about moving one of my shifts.
The weather today was perfect for biking so I went to a marsh area with a lake. I think the whole trip was about 15km in total so not the longest but it was just amazing being on my bike again going somewhere for fun. It felt amazing to do something just for me.

I wanted to keep that feeling so I went downtown by bus, got an early dinner, and had popcorn and soda in a park. Sure, I think the guy at the movie theater though it was a little weird that I bought popcorn and soda just to walk out of there but that's what I wanted so that's what I gave myself. I got a salad with beets from an organic place at the street food market and went to the nearby park where I found a place among some fallen leaves. I ate my dinner while watching 'Suits' on my phone and playing some Animal Crossing. My rock circle is finally done and all the mannikins are gone again.

As I write this I’m at a café drinking a chai latte. To make the day even better I just got a DM from my Twitter crush.
Today has been about me and what I felt like doing. It’s been pointless in so many ways because I haven’t done the things I “should” but it’s been amazing to take time do do exactly what I’ve wanted. I think it’s important if I want to stay sane.
