However you’re doing, I hope you’re doing better than André Villas-Boas.

Ramble of the Day
I have to completely honest with all of you: I spent yesterday (today while I’m writing) trying to do the Hoddle in a timely manner. That isn’t so unusual, but some days it’s technically much easier to manage than others. I technically didn’t have much going on yesterday, but I have, at 7:07p, realized I am pretty distracted!
I think that also stems from having no idea what to write about. None of the topics I’ve written down are things I want to explore right now, so you’ll have to forgive me. I can’t help but throw something at you, so if you need something to do, I’ll give you a very simple prompt: What’s a nice thing you did recently?
I went to a park yesterday and got some fresh air while the sun was out. There were trees, leaves, and some water, and very few people. It was a lovely time.
tl;dr: I don’t have a lot for you because I’m distracted, but I have a small prompt about something nice you did recently.
