I don't live in a big city, and I don't have a lot of money. I am young and smart, but I'm currently underemployed, with in a less-than-fulfilling job that drains almost all the happiness out of me everyday. I could sit down and be mopey about it, blaming the economy and faulting a society that undervalues the importance of critical reading and appreciation of literary works. But that would be a waste of time. Plus, the wrinkles that would form from my brow-furrowing would totally ruin my face.
So I try to make everyday a party as much as I can. Usually my daily parties involve mini treats in the form of baked snacks or reading a comic book. Other days, they take the form of painting my nails or spending an afternoon at the park or library, immersed in a steamy critical analysis of a favorite author's work. Sometimes, party=impromptu dinner dates with my darling husband and I get to indulge in a fudge sundae and quesadillas. When I party everyday, my life becomes a bit more magical.
I hope you all have a magical weekend!
