For once, I actually did what I said I was going to do. I said I was going to have a low key weekend, and that is exactly what I did. My head was all jumbled last week and I was stressed out with school, so I really just needed to stay home and get stuff done.
But because I don’t like to miss out on the fun, I still chose to involve some wine.
From a box because I’m classy.
While I was doing my homework, I enjoyed my wine and texted my friends who were also drinking. It made the whole experience feel more social. It also made it seem more acceptable to have an extra glass or two. Because you know, I wasn’t really drinking by myself.
After a few glasses, I decided it would be the perfect time to start on my essay that’s due tonight. By the status I posted on Facebook, it didn’t look like that was going to end well.
However, when my mom read it for me in the morning, she had nothing but good things to say. Honestly, sometimes I wonder why I bother writing anything while I’m sober.
Once my homework was taken care of, I took care of the mess going on in my head the best way I know how – running. A lot. In the rain.
Sometimes it’s just the only thing that works.
It took an awful lot of running, but I needed it. I got my head all sorted out and I’m not feeling so bogged down anymore.
Even though I’ve been having an awful lot of fun with these ridiculous weekends lately, I definitely needed to take this one off. Sometimes you just need a break. Besides, I’m sure I’ll get back to the crazy soon enough.
