Sundays are the best days of the week.
During the week, I’m constantly on the go. Pair that with volunteering on Friday night, speech judging on Saturday, and a visit from Mom… Sunday is a well-needed break.
My Sundays start by attending church with my old roommates. It’s so good to set aside all my cares and rest in God’s presence. It’s the re-fueling I need to get me through another week. I love my church. I’ve gone there all four years of school and it’s beginning to sink in that I have to start afresh come May.
When church is done, I usually make the trek over to the gym. (I skipped working out today, though, ’cause it was -45 degrees and being outside longer than necessary was not okay.)
Sunday afternoons bring a balance of homework and relaxation. I usually throw on leggings, a comfy sweater, and spend a few hours in the basement of the library pumping out essay drafts. Today, I managed to snag the poetry room. It was absolutely divine.
After all the homework is out of the way, I return to my dorm, make dinner, and spend an evening in introvert paradise. Tonight, I’ll be snacking on chips and salsa while catching up on episodes of Arrow. (I tried for an hour to figure out how to livestream the Oscars on my computer… it ended in failure. I’m pretty cut up about it.)
Yes, I do stay busy on Sundays. But, overall, it’s the most relaxing day of the week. I can choose where I go, what I do, and who I’m with. For once, I have control over my schedule. It’s wonderful to have at least one day of the week to spend quality time resting.
What is your ideal Sunday?
