Case Of The Mondays

Photo Credit: Robin Eisenberg 
I can usually say that I almost never catch a case of the Mondays. But when I do it's usually a little more legitimate than simply being upset that the weekend is over.

I feel as though people who have disdain for what they do in their life wake up on Mondays (or even hit the hay on Sunday) with a nasty, anxious, feeling. I am finally at a point in my life where I like my job, I get enough rest, and I handle my business, therefor there is little to be anxious or upset about.

But, on those Mondays where I do feel down in the dumps (like today), there are ways I try to turn the day around.

  1. Dress comfortably or wear an accessory that I really like. Fun underwear totally counts.
  2. Have a slightly more special than usual breakfast and lunch.
  3. Make a list of tasks to do before the day ends. My mood may make me forget something which will make me feel worse.
  4. Talk to someone with the power to cheer me up. 
  5. Decompress after work. Drink. Shower. Face-mask. Nail-painting. More drinking. 
  6. Forget about the day. The worse you can do is dwell on your negative feelings.

Any of these can be applied to any bad day and can be completely different. Everyone processes a sucky day differently. 

But the bottom line is to not let a less than great day ruin your vibe. Throw back your shoulders, slap on a smile, and beat Monday with a positive attitude.

Make Space: Carving Out Your Slice of the Universe

Having a place to retreat to or a place to truly call home is one of the most important things in life that many young people overlook. I think that the notion of being free makes us forget what it's like to have a home.

Who do you suppose decided birds are free? They can fly wherever they choose...but if there's no branch for them to return to they might regret having wings, don't you think? Perhaps true freedom is having a home to return to.~Unknown
The moment I realized I wanted to move out I had no second thoughts, I was ready thanks to my mother training me vigorously on how to care for myself and why it's important to break away and become my own person.

Moving out isn't always a necessity in creating your space, though having more than just your room can make it easier. (seriously guys please stop trying to live by your own rules when you not paying for anything) I have seen other apartment spaces and the spaces of people still at home, and while most were j…

Humpday Update #26

I've pretty much realized by this point that very few bloggers out there have anything of substance to say. With most of us out there being females, and more than %75 percent of us talking about topics like fashion, makeup, hair, and "lifestyle" which amounts to little more than recipes, $60 throw pillows, and fruit infusion water bottles.

What I'm getting at here is that watching "fluff" bloggers take the spotlight is really disheartening when you're trying to actually say something.

I try to be completely honest in my posts. Giving people ways to tackle problems in their lives no matter how big or small. Self confidence, reaching goals, and doing what you love. But because I'm not teaching the perfect contour, where to by the latest shag rug, or even worse, passing off the latest overpriced reader count remains embarrassingly low.

It's more than frustrating actually. It makes me want to punch every perfectly curated blogger I com…

Sleep Now, Die Later

You are not nocturnal.  Fact. Human beings were not built to be up and about after the sun goes down. There is a REASON you feel like crap the next morning when you've stayed up late or gone out. Of course this isn't about going to bed at 8 and never hanging out. It's more about why you should make sure you sleep well and regularly. 
Sleep is an integral and highly necessary part of being able to function properly. 
I promised myself I'd never miss a weekly update. But there was no Humpday Update #14 because I couldn't even formulate words yesterday. I was SO TIRED.
The notion of "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" is not cool or cute. Having your body shut down on you, even in the smallest ways, can obstruct how you go about life during the day.
It's something I've been seeing since I started college and I was even guilty of it myself. Pulling an "all nighter" was the norm, scrolling through social media until 3 am was acceptable, and pa…
