For those of you who had vacation or took days off, it's even harder. Leaving the laziness of the holiday season and immediately hitting the ground running because it's the New Year and everything needs to get done NOW!
But, that's okay, you can destress at the gym, right? Wait, no you can't, because all dumbbells are scattered around the gym, every cardio machine is taken as people stroll on treadmills while reading a magazine, and the squat rack has a line as people use them to do curls.
Plus, there's the slight post-holiday hangover. In quick succession, we had Diwali, Halloween,Thanksgiving, Christmas/Hanukkah/non-denominational holiday around Christmas, AND New Years! But what's there to look forward to now? If you're looking forward to red envlopes, you have Chinese New Years. But for the rest of us? Valentine's Day? Nah, that involves spending hella money if committed and indifference otherwise.
But don't despair, friends. We have the ultimate celebration of friendship and good living to look forward to. And the only proper way to celebrate is to drink excessively and be in ten places at once. Yes, friends, it's almost time for Rishi Day again!
