How to have the best lazy Sunday
I am in love with lazy Sundays. I like sleeping late, eating a deliciously hot breakfast and sitting on my couch for a majority of the day. Sometimes I venture out into the real world, but it’s only to get food or to see a Narnia movie with Chris Parnell.
Ok, maybe I don’t do that. I just wanted to reference The Lonely Island’s “Lazy Sunday.” Besides, we all know there are no Narnia movies playing right now.
I know most Sundays are solely dedicated to homework, but I think it’s important to have at least one day every month or so to just relax. For me, it just so happens that that day is almost always Sunday.
In my 20 years here on earth, I have perfected the lazy Sunday, and I want to share some of my favorite things to do on lazy days.
Sleep as late as humanly possible. I once slept until 4 p.m. I’m not sure if I should be proud or ashamed of that, but I’m sharing it anyway. During the week, you have classes, work or other obligations that keep you from staying in bed. When the rare chance to sleep in shows up, you have to seize it.
I’m not sure who invented pancakes, but I’m guessing they invented them for the sole purpose of Sunday morning brunch. Sundays are the perfect day to make yourself a delicious meal or go out and pick up something from your favorite restaurant. Order Greenville pizza (again) or pick up Chili’s because it’s delicious. You’ve been working hard all week and you’ve got another week ahead of you. You deserve it.
Catch up on your favorite shows or watch a movie. I don’t always have time to watch my shows during the week, so Sunday is usually the perfect time to catch up. I’m usually catching up on “New Girl” and “The Mindy Project.” Then maybe I’ll attempt to watch one of those movies I always say I’m going to watch someday like “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” Sometimes it works and I see a great new movie, but most times I end up watching “Bob’s Burgers” on Netflix for three hours instead.
Sunday is also the perfect day to catch up on reading, whether that’s the news or a good book. Right now I’m reading Lena Dunham’s “Not That Kind of Girl” and Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl.” If it’s nice outside, I recommend heading over to White Rock Lake with whatever book you’re currently reading or want to read. The calming lake mixed with the noise of bikers and dog walkers make White Rock Lake one of my favorite places.
Hang out with friends or stay by yourself awhile. Go for a long walk or stay inside on the couch. Work out or take a hot bath. Just do whatever makes you feel recharged and refreshed for the upcoming week. You’ll be really glad you did.
