hey kid, there’s nothing to be upset about.

I really blew it today. It’s been a good few months since I’ve last gotten angry as I have today, and I’m a little ashamed of myself for having lost control in such an explosion, especially over so very little. I was a little upset (or was it taken aback?) earlier because of a comment someone made about my spoken Chinese. Then I realized that I’ve heard it all too many times, so I just kind of laughed it aside and went about my merry way.

So I got in a bit of scuffle. My temper flared and I suppose I assaulted the other guy. Which I shouldn’t have done. And I got angry with myself for not hitting him back. So I hit a door. Which I shouldn’t have done. And now my knuckles are bruised and my wrist is swollen.

I hope the swelling will subside so I can work out tomorrow. That’s been my stress relief of choice for a while – both constructive and relaxing. If worse comes to worse I’ll just grit my teeth and go at it, swollen wrist and all.

Lesson of the day: everybody hurts less when you just talk it out.

♩ I’m bruised!
