She watched yourself get ready in the mirror. Bored, bland, doing the exact same thing as yesterday, as a year ago, as five years ago. When had she become so predictable? In high school she was voted "Most Likely to Succeed" and called a motivated shining star by her professors.

Somewhere along the way that determination had left her. She had just stopped trying. It could have been mediocrity of her day. The same report, the same way every day. The same type of clothing from day-to-day with minor color changes but always bland changes. It could have been any number of things.

She watched yourself slip the silver buttons to the respective holes. She watched the morning sun glint off them. Something about it finally broke the monotony.

"NO!" She all but screamed at her own reflection. "No more. Something's got to change."

She pulled out the run-of-the-mill report she had prepared for the day. She rewrote the opening entirely. She made modifications throughout making the report more exciting through her word choice. After she finished with the report she went to her closet to change. Today she dressed to stun them.

From this day forward she wasn't just going to sit idly by.

This is great! I would love to see what happened during the meeting or whatever she was going to do the report for. This sort of reminded me of how I was ten years ago. Keep it up! I would love to read more! :)

Thank you! I may continue her tale in another prompt but at the moment she is part of my nameless character series. Pretty much a bunch of one shot pieces where no names are given but it can be generally assumed they all fit together in someway. Eventually I want to get them all into a coherent piece.

Thank you so much for the encouragement. I am just starting to write again after a hiatus. Thanks.
