Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Takes a Break Before She Even Starts Working

Our favorite "It" Girl, also known as CongressCritter Barbie, Alexandria  Ocasio Cortez, is kind of burned out, y'all.  So, she's going to do  something about it, and take us all along for the ride.

She's  going to do "self-care" for a few days before her term starts on  January 3rd.  Because, you know, it's totes exhausting trying to sound  smart and stuff on TV.

She tweeted on December  17th: “I’m taking a few days to take care of myself before what is sure  to be an eventful term. For working people, immigrants, & the poor,  self-care is political — not because we want it to be, but bc of the  inevitable shaming of someone doing a face mask while financially  stressed. So I’ve decided to take others along with me on IG as I learn  what self-care even means and why it’s important.”

So, self-care is political.  What does that even mean?

Are  you telling me that the evenings that I have a glass of wine while  having a bubble bath are political?  Really?  Shutting off the phone and  watching Christmas movies on The Hallmark Channel is political?

What have we come to as a nation when a 29 year old bartender needs "self-care" before her term starts?  

Apparently,  Ms. Ocasio Cortez has a history of good self-care by doing yoga 3 times  a week, making nutritious meals at home, spending time in mindfulness  practice, and journaling.  All that went by the wayside when she ran for  Congress.  She started eating fast food, not practicing her yoga, and  falling asleep in her makeup! Quelle horreur!

In  other words, the only time she ever really worked hard was when she was  running for Congress.  I can't tell you the number of times I fell  asleep at my desk at midnight when I was a baby engineer.  

But  don't worry about Alexandra.  She's gonna take us along for the ride to  show you that she's not perfect, but that she's dedicated to helping  her community.  Leaders don't have to be perfect, they just have to be  willing to start the revolution.

Except these  millennials can't start a revolution right now, they're busy doing a  tree pose and dreaming of wild caught salmon with quinoa.
