3PM Slump!

Thank you Arsenal Pies for this lovely clock image
You know when the clock is inching it's digital numbers or analog hands close to the 3PM hour and your eyelids begin to get heavy? What is that all about? I once heard that it's because our physical and mental bodies are not created to remain awake for as long as they do during the day. The Spanish have it right: a siesta in the middle of the day makes up for this exhaustion that we feel at this hour. We are SUPPOSED to nap during the day. It keeps our mind alert for the rest of the daytime and re-charges our system.

Coffee and caffeine don't do anything for my nerves, body, system to keep me up and keep me alert. If anything, it burns a hole in my esophagus and stomach lining, and that pain keeps me in the tired-state. I also can't eat nuts or my stomach is also in excruciating pain. Reason why I brought both these foods up is because generally people drink some coffee to wake them up or have some nuts for a quick protein-fix in the middle of the day.

So, what is a girl to do when the clock strikes 3PM? What do you do to help yourself stay awake/alert/alive?

Wonderful Wednesday ~ 1

Welcome to my first Wonderful Wednesday post. Today, I'm going to blab about how wonderful my BFF is. She will be known from here on out as BFF to secure her privacy. (Blogs can open cans of worms sometimes.)

5 Reasons why BFF is so wonderful:
~She is so much fun, all the time.
~We travelled to Aruba together, which was automatically wonderful, but she managed to have fun even with a skin reaction to the sun/heat! She remained eager to sit out at the beach, read books, and have some girl-talk-time with me. <3
~She always keeps her head up. Sometimes BFF and I have sad days about boys, jobs, life in general, but she's always there to keep me looking on the bright side. She has a great outlook on life even though some cRaZy things happen to her!
~She's beautiful. From her soft blonde tresses to her yoga body, she manages to always look put together. No matter what! I'm still trying to find out what her secret is...
~She GETS me! We can be wild together, calm together, fun together, blonde together, everything.

So, there you have it: my first Wonderful Wednesday post and about a really wonderful girl who I'm proud to call BFF.
