Today I’m starting a new segment (segment?) at Cris&Cros, and I’m calling it, ‘How To Get Through Hump Day’! Because, let’s face it, Wednesdays can be tough. We’re exhausted from Monday and Tuesday, and we’ve still got Thursday and Friday before we can take it easy. So from now on (hopefully), you’ll find a new tip on how to survive Wednesdays. I suppose I’ll run out of ideas at some point, but for now, I have a few tricks up my sleeve!
My first tip, is an online purchase delivery. For me, that normally means new clothes, and this week, my clothes came from Green With Envy! Secret #7 of online shopping: plan your purchases so that the delivery is likely to come on Wednesday (or during exam period, after each exam). If it comes early, don’t open it until Wednesday, when you’ll probably need a morale boost the most. And if it doesn’t come by Wednesday, you at least have a reason to get up the next day.
When I was little, there was nothing more exciting than opening my presents from Santa on Christmas morning. I’ve sort of grown out of that phase now… after all, Christmas comes only once in a year, and I’m impatient. Now, there’s nothing more exciting than opening parcels (which are always beautifully wrapped, like presents) you’ve waited days or weeks to arrive. You know what you’re getting, but at the same time, it’s all a surprise. Is it as wonderful as you pictured? Will it fit? Was it worth what you spent?
After carefully washing my hands (I didn’t want to touch my new purchases with Oreo crumbed fingers) I even more carefully opened the Green With Envy box. It was love at first sight. All of a sudden, I forgot about the grade I got for one assignment, the other assignment that’s due next week, and the drought that’s in my bank account. Most importantly, I forgot that it was Wednesday. For an instant, it was Christmas morning.
And what did I buy? You’ll find out soon enough…
