Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Today was really good, I think?

by Layne on February 11, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

So today, everything seem to be better than normal. Everyone was laughing. Even teachers seemed to be in a good mood. I smiled most of the day. It seemed great; relaxed, chill, lighthearted. It was weird and some of my friends noticed it too. But I have this uneasy felling... I'm really not doing as well in school right now as I would like. Its easier in the quarter, I have time, but how much? I goofed off a lot today. It was fun, but what could I have gotten done if I hadn't? Am I crazy to think this way? That the one time things weren't so bad, even enjoyable, I'm regretting it just slightly? I don't know what to think. I feel kind of guilty...
