Isn’t it awesome when you wake up early and realize you have the whole day ahead and all to yourself? For those who don’t know me, I don’t like staying up late and I don’t like waking up late either. If I wake up late I feel like I have lost a good part of the day which I could have used to actually do something and we all know time is scarce. I woke up early this Saturday and decided to stay in all day (no matter what), wear my pajamas all day, listen to vintage vibes and not put make-up on my face, not even a little mascara.
Here’s a picture of me today:
Besides my recent obsession with Friends (TV Show), I started reading Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham and ended up liking it greatly. I’d recommend it to all of you women out there who sometimes need to laugh and relate. What’s wrong with that after all? Even though I haven’t read the whole book yet, one of the chapters cracked me up. It was a chapter about sharing a bed with someone which Dunham decided to call Platonic Bed Sharing. Here’s a block quote from that chapter:
Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s “Learned”
“Here’s who it’s okay to share a bed with:
Your sister if you’re a girl, your brother if you’re a boy, your mom if you’re a girl, and your dad if you’re under twelve or he’s over ninety. Your best friend. A carpenter you picked up at the key-lime-pie stand in Red Hook. A bellhop you met in the business center of a hotel in Colorado. A Spanish model, a puppy, a kitten, one of those domesticated minigoats. A heating pad. An empty bag of pita chips. The love of your life.
Here’s who it’s not okay to share a bed with:
Anyone who makes you feel like you’re invading their space. Anyone who tells you that they “just can’t be alone right now.” Anyone who doesn’t make you feel like sharing a bed is the coziest and most sensual activity they could possibly be undertaking (unless, of course, it is one of the aforementioned relatives; in that case, they should act lovingly but also reserved/slightly annoyed).
Now, look over at the person beside you. Do they meet these criteria? If not, remove them or remove yourself. You’re better off alone.”
I turn twenty in a month (I’m already in my twenties? oh no), and I decided what present I am going to give to myself. See the gift below:
Before I go, I just wanted to introduce you to a truly delicious, healthy, nutritious snack my mom and I made today. They are called Tahini Balls and they are great on the go. Even though they can be mixed with a lot of other ingredients, my mom and I made them by combining tahini, honey, almonds and raisins. After mixing them well, we rolled the mixture to six balls and then rolled them in sesame seeds. Go try them, they are super-delicious and easy!
I can say that I had a pretty good day today, and most of it is because I really decided to have one. As for the rest of today, I will probably read a little bit more, do some yoga and spend time with family. Maybe even have a glass of wine later, why not?
