Pic of the Week.

Sunday reading material.

Sunday reading material.

I’ve mentioned on here before that I might be a little bit of a workaholic. Carving time out for myself has proven to be quite a challenge this year, and even when I can make it happen, it is tough for me to really enjoy it and not feel guilty about it.

But Sunday, all day, I really had no looming deadlines—sure, there was housework that could be done, but I’m not expecting company anytime soon. So, I lugged a giant stack of magazines from my coffee table, and plopped them into my bed beside a mug of coffee and a box of donuts (assorted cake donuts, if you’re curious).

It was bliss.

Blanche even joined me for a little bit—probably more for the breeze, as I had my bedroom window open.

During my senior year in college, I worked 40 hours a week, and I was taking class full time. I was still writing for the school paper. Usually, I got up around 6, went to class from 7:30-1, ate lunch, and went to work from 2-10—working my email the entire day to get contacts for my news stories.

It was near-hell, but I did it, and on Sundays, I would leave the whole day open for relaxing, reading, and coffee-drinking.

I really need to get back to that. It’s tough though, making time for yourself, and I know I’m not the only one—I can’t imagine the parents out there.

I’m heading to the beach in a few weeks, so I might not have tons of spare time before then…but, I’m still trying to make an effort to relax a little. If you’ve got some things you like to do to help you relax, feel free to leave them in the comments, or Tweet me @OrangeJulius7
