My First Saturday As A Minimalist Adult: I Might Have Second Degree Burns

Most of my Saturday mornings start with me regretting the amount of alcohol I drank the night before while searching for the closest McDonalds, but this morning was different. I woke up without a pounding headache and without a fear of checking my bank account

As I laid in bed, I debated getting up and going to my volunteer orientation. The thought of laying in bed watching Netflix until I had to get up for my work event sounded so good. It’s what I would normally do, but I not only made a promise to myself and this project, but also to the Charleston Animal Society. So I got my ass out of bed and got in the shower.

 This is not lettuce. FAIL.

After orientation I came home to cook lunch, do laundry and clean the bathroom. Everything was going fine until I mixed up cabbage for lettuce and burned my hand when I tried to move the pan that my chicken was frying in. Just in case you also didn’t know, the handle of metal pans get hot and WILL burn you. 

 This is lettuce. 

This is lettuce. 

 I’ve had the most productive Saturday I’ve had in probably years. I’ve done more today than I have in the past month, so I’d say my first adult Saturday is going great. I didn’t eat any fast food, but i did spend $13. Meh, I feel like a failure, but I was at my work event starving and I knew it was an hour before I’d get to leave and I wouldn’t have time to cook before I headed out for the night, so I grabbed a cheeseburger from a food vendor at the event. FOOD IS NECESSARY TO LIFE, but I promise to try not to spend money on eating out.

I am going out tonight, but thankfully it’s at a friends house for his going away party, so I won’t have to worry about buying drinks. I have a full bottle of champagne leftover from my birthday that I’ll be drinking. I might even sip instead of chug tonight.

I might be talking to you guys tomorrow from the bathroom floor. Brittany out.
