So it’s Sunday night and I just had one of those weekends… Surely you know the kind of weekend I’m talking about – the well-intentioned one that promised productivity, but instead led to a whole lot of Netflix and one too many hours of sleep (or in my case, 6 too many hours). The one where I found myself saying “what midterm on Tuesday?” too many times. So here I am wishing for a weekend do-over.
But obviously that’s not a possibility.

Today is absolutely one of those days for me, and I have to admit that I sometimes find myself wondering what all the stress is really for. I mean, wouldn’t it be easier to buy a ticket to California and work at Hooters for the rest of your life? I’m sure it would be. That’s why I am so in love with today’s Monday Must Have post by my good friend Nina Cammalleri. Continue reading
