I unexpectedly didn’t have to work this morning which allowed me to wake up when my alarm sounded, but stay in bed for an extra 45 minutes. Even though it was glorious, I started to feeling a little guilty, knowing that there was a dishwasher full of clean dishes that had yet to be emptied and a treadmill that had yet to be turned on.
After I crossed off a few to-dos, I got on the treadmill while tuning in to the Today Show. Right as I was turning my television on, Natalie happened to text me about the particular segment. We were both shocked because the content was a bit bold and the discussion was getting controversial. Arianna Huffington was discussing the topic of “sugar babies,” young girls who perform sexual favors in return for money to pay for their college education. However, they are not classified as hookers. Star Jones didn’t hesitate to weigh in to argue that it absolutely is a form of prostitution, but Donny Deustch saw it otherwise. He acknowledged that it is not a respectable thing to do, though he did not believe that these women should be called hookers. Sadly, it is clear that this “trend” is on the rise. I admire those who value an education, but I still think there are other ways to afford it.
I was glad that Bobbie Thomas’ style segment followed; the heated conversation had me thinking, but I like to watch something a little more lighthearted while working out. I needed to bake a batch of cookies as thank you gifts for a few people, so halfway through my workout, I quickly ran upstairs and mixed up some chocolate chip cookies. They baked in the oven while I sweated away on the treadmill. Now that’s what I call multitasking!
After I finished up my workout, I then had to throw together everything that I needed for the day. When I know I will be out for 8+ hours, I have a tendency to bring everything I might possibly need. Everything then gets shoved into my purse and tossed into a lunchbox. I love essentially only having two things to carry, but they became extremely heavy. Then, while they sit on the passenger seat of my car, they make my seatbelt alarm go off the entire time that I’m driving. That was fun to listen to for 30 minutes today. Of course I could easily put something on the floor, but then I wouldn’t be able to just dump everything in one spot. Eh, the beeping is kinda therapeutic.
I’m cutting this post short because it’s 10pm and I have yet to shower—and I need to get to bed early tonight! There has been a lot running through my mind lately, so I’m hoping to do a serious post this weekend.
What are your thoughts on “sugar babies?”
