i tend to reward myself for doing things i should be doing, but that take a little extra effort. generally, it's things that make me feel like a responsible adult. paying my bills, cleaning my house, doing my job well...and now, studying. today i have eaten whatever i wanted " had two starbucks because i crammed all day. you see, i have a midterm tomorrow. oy.
normal things just seem more exciting if you reward yourself. as roommate anne just said, "it's great to hear you're doing these grown-up things, yet still getting really excited about them in your kristie-way." yay for the little things in life, i say.
