the magical effects of sunlight and fresh air

I feel like I should blog about something, but there just isn't too much that I really want to say, lately.
I've been getting better about my bipolar episodes, but it's...an uphill battle, to say the least. Trying to tell the difference between sincere happiness and a manic episode, in the moment, is so difficult that I find myself getting upset at my own (sincere) joy, sometimes, just because it's a little *too* happy, for me. When I start to get depressed, it's scary, and confusing--and feels inevitable, to an extent, even though it really isn't, if I just get on the offensive against that crushing feeling of emptiness.
I woke up, this Thursday, and just didn't get out of bed. Same with Friday. Saturday, I made sure to open my blinds and eat regular food, and, today, I made sure that I had plans so I had to leave the house, because it was starting to hit "that point."
My friend Kim and I walked these trails near her house, for a while. I don't know how far we walked, but it felt like a good distance, by the way my legs were sore in that nice, worked-muscle way. The weather was perfect, too; I was able to hike around in a tank top and jeans, and there wasn't a single cloud in the sky. We walked over small bridges surrounded by marshland and tall grass, and through dirt paths shaded by the twisted old, southern trees, covered in Spanish moss and green as a summer day. It was peaceful. Ideal. Even though Kim and I don't always see eye-to-eye, it was good just being able to get out into nature with someone else who actually likes nature. My other friends, down here, are great, but I'd need handcuffs and duct tape to get them to sleep in a tent.
Speaking of the outdoors, I finally signed myself up for a sailing class. It's going to run through the prettiest time of the year, so I'll be out on the water, for several hours, every day, just learning how to take a sailboat out. After this class, I can take the intermediate in the fall, then rent out the campus sailboats, whenever I like, for a day out on the water.
How perfect is this summer going to be?
Perfect. Super perfect.

So, over lunch, one day, I told my friend, Julia, that I used to work housekeeping and reception for this place close to campus, and that I might be able to get her a job there, since she was looking. She freaked out, because, apparently, that was exactly the type of job she'd been looking for.
This was interesting news. I told her that, if she wanted, I would head over and talk with the manager and see if they needed anyone, but then I got sick with the flu, so the next time I had a chance to head out there was the following Friday--and Julia decided to go ahead and come with, so that she could hand in a resume, fill out the application, et cetera. I told her that we probably wouldn't be able to talk with the manager, though, because she takes Fridays off. She said that was fine.
When we walked in, I spotted the owners, which was excellent luck. I told them that I had someone to introduce to them, gave them the run-down on what we were there for, and they asked Julia about her availability to work, looking like they were about to tell her they didn't need anyone for general working hours.
She told them that she had Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays open--and, if moments were dubstep tracks, this would be the moment where the bass drops.
Not even thirty seconds before we entered, they told us, they were talking about how they didn't have anyone for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
...Woohoo! We proceeded to find a $130 dress for $11 that fit me like a glove, and a special event poster for a local piercing shop that was going to do free piercings for three days, this coming week...and she had just happened to want to get her nose pierced. Today, I found out that she got the job on the spot when she went back to turn in her application.
