You don’t realize how much you need a lazy day until you have one. I haven’t had a day where I had absolutely no commitments in a loooooooooooooooong time. And damn it sure felt good.

Well… I did have one commitment. I had pre-work for my coding bootcamp to really dive into. I realized that I only have a couple days off that I can really work on my pre-work, especially now that I’ve decided to go to Chicago with my sister next week. I’ll be fine though! I’m making really good headway. I just have MAJOR ADHD when I’m trying to sit down and watch videos about methods and arrays haha. It’s especially hard to sit down when I want to be out walking in the beautiful weather. I used to be so good at sitting down and focusing on homework, but it seems that my study muscles from nursing school are out of shape.

Probably not the most effective way to get work done, but between videos and tutorials I ended up doing 3 loads of laundry, grocery shopping, cooking an entire chicken, teaching Schmee how to “stand up” with said chicken, repairing the cat tree in my living room, scrolling endlessly through Facebook (ugh I wish I could delete that app, but it’s not possible on my current phone), chatting with bae, opening a package that I was excitedly waiting on for weeks which ended up being a red sweater that looked absolutely nothing like the picture :(, writing a very frustrated review on said sweater, then writing reviews on my last 15 amazon purchases. Very productive day actually. I also got a lot of pre-work done throughout all of this, so I’m pretty proud :).

Long story short, my lazy day off ended up not actually being so lazy… I don’t think it’s actually possible for me to do nothing all day. However, catching up on all these little things made me feel so organized and re-energized.

Off to sleep! I’m hoping that dealing with all my little chores lets my brain rest. Maybe I can finally get a full 8 hours of sleep.
