Now that I’m working full time, I have a new found appreciation for the weekend. You see, in college the weekend was just an extension of the week because, even though I didn’t have classes to attend, I still had homework that needed to get done. Just a couple of weeks into work and I am really understanding the value of the weekend.
A couple of my friends and I have really gotten into a routine for the weekend, which I love. Routines are my fave.
Friday night, a big group of us come together for something. Saturday morning, I have rugby practice or a game. And then I spend the rest of the day lounging around. And it. is. glorious. No, really. As the aggressively Type-A person I am, I never thought I’d appreciate sitting around doing nothing so much. Hell, I don’t even just watch Netflix when I watch Netflix. Just taking care of me, though, has been absolutely wonderful and a great way to recharge for me.
This outfit might not seem like anything spectacular, but this tie-dye shirt is the first piece of clothing I bought in Baltimore. A couple of Sundays ago, I went to Church in a dress but getting on the bus from Church to the Farmer’s Market, another part of my weekend routine, I snagged my zipper and it split leaving my back totally exposed and my dress basically falling off me. I walked right into the first clothing booth I saw, which just so happened to be this t-shirt shop. Having owned zero tie-dye up to this point in my life, I went for it. Now, it’s one of my favorite shirts.
What do your weekends look like?
