It’s Wednesday and there are a thousand things I’m supposed to be doing. I could be taking a test. Or writing a paper. Updating my physical activity log (which I need, as I intend to graduate this June) or filing my income taxes. I ought to be scheduling appointments and learning how to say important things like “The sugar is always sweet,” and “this is a stove,” or “this baby isn’t very strong,” in three different languages. I have no money. I’m broke. I should probably be working, updating my resume and looking for another job. I could even clean my room.
But excuse me, I have more important things to do. I’d like to play some video games. Or go for a walk, camera in hand. I want to take pictures of the snow! I’d rather look at clothes I can’t buy (no money, remember?) and stare at my desktop. I’m about to make a cup of cocoa, take the sheets off my bed to wash and make a list of things I must urgently purchase, all the while planning a trip to Quebec.
You’re lucky, you know? You just happened to catch me going out the door for a walk in the snow on my two hour lunch break.
