Hi-ho, earthlings:

Today is my first Saturaday off in...
Wait, hang on...
6 months! This is the first time since this semester started that my alarm woke me to got to work, only to see my girlfriend off alone instead.

I stayed behind.

This is my duty weekend with the Reserves, which I requested off 2 months ago ,as I graduate from college tomorrow.

Normally my alarm would have gone off a half hour earlier than normal because I don't have breakfast stuff at the hotel on reserve weekeds.

Not only was I not at the hospital (I work in an emergency room), not at the reserves, and not asleep, I was home alone on a Saturday morning for the first time in six months.

I was utterly lost.

I began wracking my brain for things to do. After resisiting the urge to go back to bed, fire up the Playstation, or go out to grab some coffee, I managed to get my car's oil changed, make a trip to the post office, and do a little grocery shopping all before 9:00 A.M.

A friend of mine recently told me I should remember how to relax.

What's that?
