This Is My Perfect Day

My perfect day would include a balance of business and pleasure. I would wake up, recite my morning prayer and begin to mentally structure my day. After getting out of bed, I would write my daily journal entry while listening to my positive vibes playlist on SoundCloud. I would eat a hearty breakfast and then head to the gym to complete my favorite chest, back and legs workout. I would do a quick cool-down, stretch and sit in the sauna to relieve any remaining stress.

I would then go downtown and take photos while I explore unfamiliar territory. On my way my home, I would hop on a call to see how my grandmother is doing and to talk about her day. (I’m a huge grandma’s boy.) Once I make it home and clean myself up, I would meet up with friends and have dinner at a fancy Mexican restaurant. After we eat, we would go to a club or bar where we have a reserved section. We’d end the night the only way we can: by going to Waffle House. I would order the one and only thing I eat at Waffle House: the All-Star Special with scrambled eggs and sausage. Once I’m satisfied with my late-night feast, I would head home, say my prayers and hope for another perfect day.
