Operation Positive - Day 2 30 Jul 2015

Status: Fail Overall I think today was worse but I can’t put my finger on why, maybe I just wasn’t trying hard enough. I think that various stresses throughout the day didn’t help. Games night was great though, I had so much fun playing Munchkin and just relaxing with friends. Here’s to tomorrow!
