Whoever decided that weeks should be significantly longer than weekends obviously needs serious mental help.
I just got back from a week/weekend roadtrip, and started off my Sunday with a glorious trip to Whole Foods to stock up on essentials (I’ll post some in my next post!), and now I’m taking a break between the massive piles of homework and projects that my teachers oh so graciously blessed me with over the weekend. So giddy about that jazz.
On Thursday, I decided to take a 2 1/2 hour drive trip to visit my old college, and a few of my favorite people.
You know you’re in mountain-man country when your radio stations go from Lady Gaga and Kanye to in and outs of static and songs about cows and sexy tractors.
With a little love from my friends, a healthy balance of alcohol and stories from years past, here’s how to spend the perfect weekend away from the city:
1) Go on an adventure and consider it all the exercise you’ll need for the week. Because let’s face it, getting lost in a cornmaze is a lot more challenging when you’re over the age of 5…true story.
2) Become a pro at making dippy eggs and impress the hell out of your friends. Dippy eggs are hard to perfect, either that or I’m just challenged in that aspect…got any tips?
3) Go back to the cornmaze after properly fueling up and fail at finding your way again. But have a blast doing it anyway by chucking corn, playing with the animals and other activities that twenty-something year olds really shouldn’t be doing.
4) Engage in unhealthy but worthwhile activities later that night, and dance your ass off, then eat it back on when you’ve got the munchies.
5) Most importantly: focus on the time you get to spend with those you wish you saw more often.
Life is too short to worry so much about material things, worry about the people that love you, the people who you make you feel good, no matter the time of day, no matter how much eye makeup is smeared down your face in the morning after a rough night, no matter the number on the scale and no matter the things you’ve been through in the past. Having a beautiful support system in your friends is one of the key components to living a healthy, happy life.
What do you love most about your close friends?
What did you do this weekend?
Peace and love!
p.s. I feel really bad about not being able to keep up with your blogs and/or comments on my posts.
Just know that I still read and appreciate your posts (I’m addicted to blogs, duh!) and your comments – school projects have been taking over almost all of my spare time, I promise I’ll catch up one of these days 🙂
I hope you understand!
