Why You Need Some R & R, and a Beer
Because you all were curious as to what the Apes were up to last weekend, allow us to enlighten you. We’ve still got a few other weekends to tell you about (from weeks back…heh), but this one was easier. Mind you, we all have full-time jobs/grad school.
We spent last Saturday hanging out at home, around a fold-up table, by the BBQ, with beers, alongside a bunch of friends. How awesome does that sound? We mentioned that we have full-time lives. Everyone does. We know you’re busy. Maybe it’s our generation, maybe it’s a stage in life, maybe it’s just life. As fun as your job may or not may not be, we believe it’s important to take time off. Even if it’s just one day to make time for yourself, your friends, or family.
Luckily, the Apes (yes, third
person ape) all have weekends off. And what do we do with that time? We do things we enjoy, other than work (like this blog ;D). Something without a deadline; something off of the grid; something out in nature. You get the idea. We have a friend that does nothing but work. Last week the dude worked 7 days. What the fuck? Honestly, even when we were working part-time, never would we work 7 days. Even when near broke. We know there are extreme circumstances, but why work your life away?
Although kids milked the hell out of the acronym, one has to understand that (for all we know), you only live once. Career-wise, we’re all happily moving forward. Even then, we don’t dedicate 100% of our time to that venture. Do yourself a favor and do you. A multifaceted you. You’re not simple. There’s definitely more to you than just work. You dream, you strive. There’s things to do during you-time. No time? MAKE time, relax, and destress. And that doesn’t necessarily mean a BBQ or laying in bed all day (not that we mind that). If you follow us, you know that sometimes even means climbing/hiking/stuff. You define relaxing. Don’t be our 7 work-day friend that we only see sometimes. Sure, “C.R.E.A.M” (cash rules everything around me…dollar dollar bill y’all), but you can gain that with other time. Seriously, you do you boo boo. You do you.
TL;DR Make you-time. You (probably) deserve it. You do you boo boo. You do you.
Now, for the visuals:
