No Work Wednesdays
|My best friend Marlee and I love Despicable Me.|
|I share Wednesdays with Ashley (middle) and Madison (right).|
The reason I bring this up is because I have had a fantastic day with a couple amazing friends. Among this insane time of midterms and essays and more midterms, we have found a haven with each other. We are all burdened with an extra long break in between our classes on Wednesdays. We try to get work done, but in a three-six hour time span, full focus remains unreachable. So we fill in the space with whatever we feel like doing that day. That has included shopping trips, adventures through forests (resulting in me falling in a river), Taylor Swift jams, McDonalds lunches, and life chats. We have officially dubbed Wednesdays as “No Work Wednesdays”. Don’t be surprised if it ends up as a hashtag on Twitter or Instagram.
Believe it or not, I have a moral to this whole thing. People get so stressed out about life. They get all caught up in the bustle of work or school or personal thing, and they forget how important it is to be with other people. Everyone needs friends to kick back with. It lowers your blood pressure (not based on scientific fact), and it makes you feel good about yourself (also not based on real facts). So if you’re going through a tough time right now, make sure you schedule some time with your best friend. I promise you that it is not wasted time. Could you get work done in that time? Sure. But will you run yourself down in the process? Most likely. You need the time with your friends. Trust me.
