I'm sorry you can't get a pet - maybe you could do some animal work at a shelter. At least, you'd be around them and have some critters in your life, Oded. :)

If you're particularly fearless, you could spend some time at a zoo. Animals do get to know people who they see often, and I made a few very sweet "friends" that way, before I was able to get a pet of my own.

Joy: I am finally starting to recover from my cold!

Sorrow: The last day of it which was yesterday was the most SEVERE and I wasn't able to do anything at all so I missed doing my routine and have to play catch up now. If you are someone with OCD like me, missing out on a routine really starts gnawing at you.

Oh I hope to God my cold doesn't return and if I do get stuffy it is only a three-day cold like this one. Preferably without it being at its worst on day 3. :|

Sorrow and Annoyance: I took EIGHT hours to finish two homework assignments because they kept on giving me trouble and the questions kept going on and on. It was really getting on my nerves. Now my whole day is shot. :x

Broke the day of housekeeping with some beach time - cold, rainy, few people. Good weather for thinking deep thoughts and talking to your dog.

Thanks. Unlike the other friend that died, I actually knew this one and had memories of her all throughout my life.

My mother has a small miniature tree she put in the parlor a few weeks before Thanksgiving and it took everything in me not to roll my eyes at it. :mrgreen:

Joy: Got a new phone to replace my brick from 2013.
I've gone from a Nokia Windows phone with 512MB of RAM to a Samsung Galaxy S10e with 6GB of RAM.
Sooooooo much better!
