FEBRUARY :: photo a day challenge

So, I've been meaning to start bloggin' again.  And I've also been wanting to use Instagram more often.  When I discovered this challenge on sécias's blog, petite insanities (<3), I immediately knew this would be a great way to kill two birds with one stone.

The idea is to take a photograph reflecting each day's theme and then post it to Twitter, Instagram, or any social network of your choice.  I decided to kick it up a notch.  In addition to posting the photo on Instagram, I'll repost it along with a brief description here on my blog! I think it will be a fun and easy way to get back into the habit of blogging and a great way to utilize my long commute time!

So, let's begin with today!

Today I was feeling kind of like the weather.  Cold and mildly crappy.  As the day progressed, I realized that my presence at work was rather pointless as the most I could do was stare at my screen and almost kind of stay awake.  At lunch time, a couple of coworkers told me I wasn't looking so hot, and that maybe I should get a ride to the train station and go home to rest.  I thought, well hey, why not!

So, I got a ride with a coworker, and took the one-point-five-hour-long train ride along the coast back to Barcelona.  As we cruised by the numerous beaches, devoid of all life save a few devoted runners, I thought that this image was a good metaphor for what it is like to leave work early when you are sick.  It's exactly kind of like a sandy beach with palm trees... in the cold, wet rain.
