Day Off— Challenge: Day 4

This morning I️ woke up to three emails, each announcing class is cancelled for today.

Classes cancelled translates to “do what you actually want for the day.” For some people, this means laying around watching Netflix. Or taking the time to relax. Or playing video games for hours on end. Which is perfectly fine. Do what you do. But it’s gratifying how I️’m choosing to spend the day off.

I’m proud of my outlook on my suddenly open schedule. Instead of saying “Wow, look at all the time I️ have to be lazy,” I️ say “Look at all the things I️ can accomplish!” It’s done with no trade off of happiness either. I’m just as satisfied as that person on their fourth episode of Narcos or the person snoozing the day away.

By no measure do I️ want to come off as a pompous ass. I don’t think I’m superior to you or anyone else. I️t’s just reassuring that I️ spend my free time in a way that’s conducive to my goals. It’s nice that my hobbies align with where I️ want to be in the future.

Like that old saying

Just as the exclamation goes, Carpe Diem! Seize the day; make the most of the present. You won’t get today back.

Bored, uneducated, homeless — em dashes are my specialty. I write what I see, think, and feel. That’s it.
