It is the night before my trip and I’ve decided that the heat index in Jacksonville tomorrow is a great thing for me to fixate my general anxieties about my trip on. The first activity of my trip is hitting up the Jacksonville Zoo. It’s predicted to be 98 degrees, but it will feel like 101 degrees. Why would that bother me? Why should that stress me out? I live in Florida. I’m used to it being hot. It is just what my neuroses have decided to single out on.

I’m going to go to bed early tonight, so that I can wake up early tomorrow and try to beat at least some of the heat.

Until then…
