Still Depressed and Angry
I managed to get a decent sleep because it was still fairly cool but then as soon as I remembered about the speeding ticket I got yesterday I became depressed and angry again. I kept saying a mantra of, why me, why me, why me, in my head all the time. Then I started to feel sad. I can’t afford this in my unemployed state that’s for sure.
I had bought a dozen donuts yesterday and ate four of them. I knew that I would eat more today. And yes, they did give me some comfort. I polished off another four today. They were a little dry but still tasted good to me in my mood.
I have a lot of leftovers in my fridge so I spent the rest of the day finishing those off as well. I have this voracious appetite lately and it’s not for good clean eating. I can feel my clothes getting tighter, too. I haven’t been running as much as I usually do. That is probably making the difference.
Google Speeding Ticket Disputes
I spent time googling how to dispute my speeding ticket. My friend who had been with me when I got the ticket told me that her husband gets them all the time. She said that there was a ridiculously long time before I would get a court date, like two years.
As I read different posts, it looked like anecdotally speaking, they say that there’s a chance that the officer will not show up to court and then the ticket will get dismissed. However, I read on official websites that an officer can testify by phone or even video which surprised me.
I think my best chance is to dispute the ticket and hope that by the time I go to court, I will be a little more financially secure in case I do have to pay the full amount. I will hope he doesn’t show up or that I can bargain with him before we appear before the judge hoping that he’ll reduce the amount. In any case, it’s a chance I’ll take.
Short Run to Theater
My trail race is this weekend. I have an old pair of trail running shoes that I put on to do a short run to the movie theater. I would be running through a community garden area that would be a bit of a test for them.
My legs felt quite heavy as I ran the short distance. I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t run in a few days or if it’s the trail running shoes I need to get used to. I’ll try to wear them this week and hopefully they’ll be okay for the race.
Free Movie Screening
I met up with a friend to see the movie preview of I Origin. It was a sci-fi kind of movie and I really didn’t like it. I kept looking at my watch wondering when it would be over. I felt a little badly because my friend didn’t like it either.
Oh well, it was free. You never know what it will be. I did get a chance to catch up with my friend so that’s good at least.
