at 7/11/2016 12:00:00 AM




Ellie is having the worst Monday of her life. She messes up her school  speech for the class vice presidency position, she manages to take the world's  worst school picture, she bombs softball tryouts, and the icing on top  of this awful cake: her perfect boyfriend, who is in a high school rock band, dumps her. At the end of the day, Ellie wishes she could redo everything. When she wakes up the next morning, she discovers that it's Monday again! She has six more chances to redo the day in the hopes of having everything go exactly the way she wants. But in the process, she just may find out that what she really wants and what she actually needs are two very different things.

My Best Monday

My Best Monday happened a few months ago. I has been quite some time since I've seen my friends from college. Life always seemed to get in the way of scheduled dinner dates or hangouts. Them's the breaks, am I right? Back in March, our schedules finally synced and we all had Monday (the 14th) free. At the crack of dawn (it was actually 8am), we all met up at the base of the Santa Anita Canyon Mountains. I'm not much of a hiker, but hiking was unanimously chosen as a group activity. When I say that I'm not much of a hiker, I mean that I have never hiked before. Me, being the complete newbie, I dressed in exercise clothes, running shoes and brought a small knapsack weighted down with water bottles and trail mix. There were 5 of us in total. There was Emily (the animal lover), Vanessa (cowboy boots collector), Norma (Veteran turned nurse), Devin (Mac lover and computer whiz), and myself. We all piled into Norma's SUV and drove up the road to the start of the trail. The weather was nice and sunny. Perfect hiking weather, I was told. We hiked to the trailhead to Sturtevant Falls and continued onwards to Sturtevant Falls. We snacked while sitting on large boulders. We traded snacks and life updates with each other and got our energy back to continue on the trail. This ironically did not last long. We decided to turn back after we all got tired & hungry. After a quick Yelp search, we decided to gain back the calories we just walked off by having a late brunch at The Cheesecake Factory. We were all sweaty and exhausted and definitely dressed inappropriately for TCF, but at this point we didn't care. This was definitely one of the best Mondays I've had this year.
