Today, as I continue my journey to a better me (or at least a me who doesn’t feel the need to puke every time she’s asked to speak in public) Garton tells me to “Get Computer Confident” because as technology is constantly evolving, knowledge on how to fill out charts on Microsoft Excel and clear out one’s porn seach history is important.
Since I already view myself as pretty adequate when it comes to the innerworkings of a computer and various other devices (and by that I mean I know how to make a Word Document and blog on my smartphone), I decided to use this day as a relax day.
Yup, sorry Garton, I skipped one of your 365 tips.
So what did I do today?
Woke up, went to school, came home, did homework, and proceeded to cuddle into some covers and watch The big Bang Theory.
Honestly, I love these moments.
I think everyone needs at least one moment each week dedicated to peaceful solidarity and self-enjoyment. I mean this in the most PG-rated way possibly, by the way.
Granted, my meager social life have allowed me quite a few of these, I think that people, especially in this time, forget to set aside time to reflect upon themselves and find something deeper about themselves beyond their love of One Direction or addiction to Ben & Jerry’s.
I already know that about myself.
I could go deeper with this, give you more detailed advice, throw out a few sad anecdotes, and maybe even quote some Thoreau but, frankly, it is late and I am quite tired.
I leave you with this sentiment only a pretentious, teenage pseudo-poet could give: In life, the best friend you will ever have is yourself, so you should get to know her/him.
That’s it. If you are not satisfied, here is a LOLcat:
Your beloved blogger,
