As a wise drag queen, Katya Zamolodchikova once said, “Expectations are just premeditated resentments.” I 100% agree with that sentiment. If you wake up every day saying, “This is going to be the best day of my life, and if it isn’t, I’m going to cry,” you’ll do a lot of crying. It’s mentally advantageous to be optimistic about your day and your life in general, but if you expect the world, it will be a rude awakening when you’re not given it.
Your average day is likely neutral at best, so it is always nice when something unexpected comes along to make it above average. You could run into your best friend at the grocery store or find a shiny Sacagawea coin on the ground! Better yet, you might just have the golden opportunity to scroll through 31 hilarious, not to mention high-quality, memes that you won’t soon forget.
