Friday.

I've been waking up early every day this week with random food cravings. This morning, I was awake at 5:30 Googling Japanese curry. Yesterday I almost pulled the trigger on an $80 Hawaiian saimin noodle order (shipped overnight FedEx from the islands) before 6 a.m. Before that it was baked eggs with runny yolks. My memory doesn't stretch back past Wednesday.

Key learnings from this week:

· The best way to get over basically anything is to seek out your inner Beyonce as soon as humanly possible.

· For happiness and entertainment, go out every weeknight—with friends, to dinner, to work functions, on dates—but try to be home and in bed by 10 p.m., because it's winter and it's dark and cold outside.

· Adhere to the law of abundant bedding. My mother told me about a comforter that, in lieu of down, is filled with strands of silk. I bought a king size one, fold it in half and sleep under it. I still also have my fluffy down comforter in my bed. Lots of comforters = more comfort.
