1. I deserve to have fun tonight, I had such a rough week.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F636236454711174525-1151170812_Signs-Youre-Addicted-Netflix.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=673&h=f1f34b8cf4024cc1032fdf5f3feeb4dbdce39392f8f0ccb28aaf9967944ab086&size=980x&c=1173149762 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F636236454711174525-1151170812_Signs-Youre-Addicted-Netflix.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D673%26h%3Df1f34b8cf4024cc1032fdf5f3feeb4dbdce39392f8f0ccb28aaf9967944ab086%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1173149762%22%7D" expand=1]

Meanwhile, the majority of your week was spent binge watching Netflix...

2. I’m not drinking anything after the pregame.

Yet once you get to the party...

3. I WILL NOT TALK TO HIM. OR LOOK AT HIM.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F636236456388963727-2097354812_giphy-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=383&h=b0878d4726a40ff6586b567f7dcd08c4a69061719e9c3eb712ab4ebcb485203c&size=980x&c=1946103951 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F636236456388963727-2097354812_giphy-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D383%26h%3Db0878d4726a40ff6586b567f7dcd08c4a69061719e9c3eb712ab4ebcb485203c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1946103951%22%7D" expand=1]

Magically at the party, however, as soon as you catch sight of him with another girl, it's all over.

4. I’m going to take such cute pictures at the party.

5. I’m totally not going to eat junk after tonight.

Later that night:

6. I promise myself I’m not going to text or Snapchat anything I’d regret tomorrow.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F636236459154602036-1403601764_giphy-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=134&h=86ede34c9c608f88b83549000425c7043768beb069023e79df57424619be18d7&size=980x&c=1505980134 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F636236459154602036-1403601764_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D134%26h%3D86ede34c9c608f88b83549000425c7043768beb069023e79df57424619be18d7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1505980134%22%7D" expand=1]

Until the next morning when you see the damage you have done.

7. I am not wasting my day tomorrow; I am going to wake up early and workout.

Tomorrow morning:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F6362364585896836322101897543_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=65&h=c089067aa70206af5e9d219b3ff6689815f4f7551c59dece0484db0b8e29599d&size=980x&c=3076970969 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F6362364585896836322101897543_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D65%26h%3Dc089067aa70206af5e9d219b3ff6689815f4f7551c59dece0484db0b8e29599d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3076970969%22%7D" expand=1]

8. Then after working out, I am going to be super productive and gets tons of work done.

But at 2 o’clock the next day...

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
