Late last night, after a very long day, my darling Chelsea and I went to a nearby diner to simultaneously grab food and be productive. I had a huge report to finish for work and she had a math final to study for.
Though we got to the diner at about 8 p.m. or so, the following is a transcript of the most eventful portions of the evening.
Scene: Me on my laptop, though admittedly I don’t look like I’m doing work as I am on Twitter and Facebook tracking social media mentions. Chelsea’s notebook and math notes are strewn about. Quesadilla remnants and coffee cups litter the table.
Chelsea, who cannot focus for anything (too much caffeine probably,) settles on her mantra, repeating it to give her strength:
1-Do the stuff
2-Learn the things
3-Not fail the test
Mantra is slightly altered:
1-Do some of the stuff
2-Learn a few of the things
3-Consider not failing the test
