being a grown-up: attempt #1

this week, I’ve had an extraordinary amount of work.  one midterm, 1600 word essay, one ten page paper, and one more 8 page paper.  plus lots of course reading that I may or may not have actually done to prepare for class.

this was partially my own fault since I procrastinate like it’s my job.  as a full-time student, I guess this technically is my job.  I only really work well under pressure.  otherwise, I get distracted way too easily and find myself facebook stalking people I’ve met once in my life.

so given the amount of work that I had to do, I decided to try and be a grown up about stress relief.

I lit candles.

I bought a bottle (not a box!) of some delicious CLASSY wine, poured myself a glass, and hoped that it would help get the creative juices flowing.

funny thing: I don’t think I’ve ever just sipped on a single glass of vino before.  turns out it gave me a headache and made me tired.  so I ate more snacks, chugged some water, and gave up on this whole attempt at being mature thing.

I’m going to finish the rest of the bottle tonight when I can have a sip and gossip session with my roomies.  because nothing calms me down like a solid wine buzz and some juicy rumors.

what do you do to unwind?

    Yeah, I’m not at the maturity level where one glass does anything positive either. When I’m out to dinner I’d rather just save that one glass for another drink when I go out later :)
