As we watch world famous athletes compete in the Olympics, we ask ourselves: How can I relate to these accomplishments? Will I ever become an Olympian? Don’t worry, normal people have their own Olympic victories. Sometimes it’s getting into an exclusive school, sometimes it’s just getting off the couch.
No matter the level of difficulty, here are some non-Olympic events:
Sometimes you just have to lie on the couch for no particular reason…all day. You have your blanket, snacks, and laptop, why bother moving?
Once you’ve started a new show, it’s hard to stop. You think you’re ready to move on, but then there’s a huge cliffhanger at the end of the episode and you just have to know what happens next.
When you’re having a good hair day all week, who’s stopping you from bragging on Instagram? If your puppy is adorable, why hold back on Twitter? If you are the single most clever and awesome person in the world, why would you ever let a day go by without posting on Snapchat?
Watching Cat Videos
Cats are hilariously weird. Watching them be funny and adorable is the best way to recover from a stressful day.
Speeding Through Your Morning
You’ve perfected your morning routine. You know exactly how many times you can hit the snooze button. Your bag is ready, breakfast is a power bar, and your outfit is whatever clean clothes are left in your closet. You are ready to go and you’ve only been awake for 17 minutes.
Rush hour traffic is not for the faint of heart. Pay attention, blast your music, and feel free to scream at the other drivers while you try not to die.
You could totally be on The Voice, and your showerhead agrees. It takes skill to sing at the top of your lungs while washing your hair.
Finally, the ultimate event. The most cherished, most sought out, number one goal on everyone’s wish list. Sleeping in until you can’t sleep anymore. Laying in bed while the suckers drag themselves around outside in the real world. Lazing through dreams while snuggled with the secret teddy bear you never got rid of. The only morning in your world is when you go dancing at 2 am. 7 am is just a myth, for sure.
These events take some serious training, sometimes a whole lifetime of dedication. So whether you’re catching up on Once Upon a Time or spending all afternoon on an Instagram post, go for the gold.
