Needed to Relax
My jaw hit the floor when my roommate Wilfred walked downstairs with a large grey container in his hands. Within this large plastic container was a reminder of my childhood and a simpler time. A time when I would grab a Quaker Oats granola bar after coming home from school and run into the living room to play.
What my roommate withheld in is room, for way too long, was a Nintendo 64 game console. And not just that, he had four controllers and seven games that included, Mario Kart, Mario Tennis, Diddy Kong Racing, and, yes, even, Goldeneye 007.
With three jobs, classes and attempting to get a summer internship I am constantly under stress. I always profess to my roommates to take time off and take productive study breaks, but with all the work I have I don't always practice what I preach.
A Special Cup grand prix with a red shell to put me into first on rainbow road was just what I needed. So, this post is a reminder to everyone, including myself, to take a load off every once in a while to maintain your sanity.
