Had a whole weekend 100% to myself. I rarely get those, maybe one every 6 months or so. It’s not the norm, that’s why, when I have them, I dive into excessiveness; responsibly, of course, no consequences.
This translates into whatever makes me happy. Give into impulsiveness. Anything within the reach of comfortable walking distance, delivery or 5-minute drive will be mine.
Wine, pizza, ice cream, jacuzzi, no sleep, a lot of sleep, long steaming showers, video game and movie marathons, no phone, no emails… The limit is set by a correlation between my motivation and laziness.
It’s like staying in a house-hotel, but without the crazy expenses and room service.
You know the pros, I’ve expressed them thoroughly.
Now the cons: stomachache, loss of sleep, gaining weight, it ends fast and you don’t know when the next one is going to be.
Happiness is freedom and having what you desire, even if it lasts less than 48 hours.
