Good morning from The Pride! I hope all of you had an awesome Thanksgiving holiday. I know I did!
From the all day food free for all of yesterday to the all day free for all of the “biggest shopping day of the year”. The cancerous infection known as Black Friday. It sounds like a harsh way to describe it, but it really is true. Black Friday has turned the seemingly, somewhat normal person into blood thirsty, consumerist savage.
In the spirit of breaking the chains of consumerism, I think that it is time to for The Pride to begin practicing an ultra minimalist day. The other day I was reading a blog called Mr. Money Mustache. The writer suggested ditching consumerism on Black Friday and having a new day titled Badass Friday. the purpose of Badass Friday is to be completely contrary to Black Friday and create an experience, better yourself, or work on your personal badassery rather than fighting for your life at the shopping mall and becoming ever dependent on your job to pay your credit card bill.
In true nature of The Pride, what a better way to spend the new found holiday of Badass Friday than to fight the power, stay away from the war zone of the shopping centers, and instead work on ourselves, our side hustles, and expand our skill sets. Maybe even take an awesome adventure into unknown territory in true Badass fashion.
While the masses are supporting the cash cows and maxing out their credit cards to impress their friends and loved ones, let’s cut the crap and become followers of Badass Friday! Who’s with me?
Rise up and stay strong!!
