My roommate and I spent our weekend unlike many college kids. We didn’t go out anywhere, we didn’t hang out with anyone. We stayed at home watched girlie shows, ate too much food and actually forced ourselves to go to the gym.
We started out strong, studying. Highlighting, re-doing problems, reading and looking up answers. But our minds soon tired and we found ourselves tuning in to “The Notebook” and commenting on it and eating everything in sight. After the movie we thought we would go back to studying and being good college kids, but there was another movie on that intrigued us and so we watched it as well. Before we knew it, it was midnight and we were so spent, we didn’t go out with friends but rather went to bed.
The next day we woke up and started studying again, once again doing very well. Then the TV was turned on and soon our living room was flooded with episodes of Say Yes to the Dress and Cake Boss and those seemed much more interesting than paying complete attention to our studies. So we decided to compromise and we did both. Or so we would like to think.
Following more consumption of shows and food we decided that going to the gym would be the most profitable ending to our weekend, since we had done little physical activity since the end of school that Friday. And so we did.
I’d say our weekend, although not very interesting, was a nice way to de-stress from the commotion of school and work during the week. We had a great time and I’m sure we’ll do it again soon.
