It started off like any other Monday — me being pissed off that I needed to get up. I never feel like going to school and most likely need to let the weekend dissolve me, but nonetheless, I still go to class like any Honors student would :).
Some memorable highlights of the day included me not realizing I had homework for the majority of my classes and it being nippy out whilst I wearing a slip dress and Birkenstocks. I almost forgot to mention my never-ending marketing summit from 11-5 paired with the cruel reminder it would pick back up same time on Wednesday. Wouldn’t you rather be drinking wine on a vineyard somewhere pretending responsibilities, life, decisions and Trump didn’t exist? So how does one rectify a Monday such as this? You run into your mans- Big Willie aka Willy Wonka, and decide that you needed to make a Trader Joes run. We finally arrive to the store where we were welcomed with a free red wine tasting (red wine is not my first pick) and it was $4.99. Cheap and slightly tasty…We were SOLD! Will got three bottles of it and I got one. We came back to the West Towers- Will played the smooth oldies and I cooked some chili while drinking our $4.99 bottle of wine. Then Will and I sat and sang smooth oldies for hours while slowly sipping our unpronounceable wine. I got some good sleep this night—which is rare when you are sleeping in a Twin XL.
The moral of the story is always be open to a good day because it can come from the littlest things. If you are moving through life too fast or have decided to be in a bad mood, you may miss your inkling of happiness. Don’t let anyone steal the bits of joy we have left- even if its Monday.
Shoutout to Trader Joes, $4.99 table wine, and my mans Big Willie.
