Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
Day 2: The Artistic Stickman

Day 3: Accidental Punch To The Heart
When you show up to your university class early only to find out it isn’t actually your class and you’re an hour early, but lucky for you an attractive heartthrob of a person sits beside you and you start to hit it off, checking them out and flirting with each other occasionally through out the class which eventually ends and they start packing up and you put on your jacket, and in an effort to reposition it on your body you accidentally punch them in the face only to have them say ‘sorry’ and your confused brain replies with ‘yea’ making you look like a total jackass. Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
Day 4: Star Student
That day when you do your homework, that isn’t due for a couple of days, but being the keener that you are you finished it early to have some free time and when you get to your class the teacher gives you a bonus 10% for working so hard and everyone else in the class looks at you like you’re a traitor and they isolate you to the back of the class.

Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
Day 6: Whimsical Procrastination
When you procrastinate for so long only to realize that the presentation project that you had prepared for was yesterday, but you slept through it and stayed home only to be let down when you came back knowing that you couldn’t make that project into the whimsical performance like you dreamed the morning before as the class went on without you.

Day 8: An Artist’s Tone
When you meet someone for the first time and you’re forced to make small talk and the first thing they ask you is what’s your favourite colour, and you think long and hard and finally say black only to have them look at you in disgust and say that it’s a tone not a colour, and immediately walk away from you and as you watch them leave you think I meant to say green, it’s been green since I was three and now I’m thirty six and you know you can’t take back that answer and you have to live with it until the next amateur artist comes around. Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
Day 9: Six Ain’t Nine

Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
Day 13: Dodgeball Stalemate
Those day’s that you’re playing dodgeball in school, and you can’t throw for the life of you so you stay in the back of the class while everyone else is on the front line, then before your very eyes everyone starts dropping like flies until you’re the only one left, however because no one in your third grade class can throw the distance of half a gymnasium it all eventually leads to a stale mate because you have all the balls trapped in the corner using your body as a barrier knowing full well your teacher can’t touch you without facing a potential lawsuit and thus wait out the clock, knowing that at the end of the day you might have lost the battle but won the war. Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
Day 14: Freezing Monopoly
When the snow continues to keep coming down…and just wont stop, no matter how much you pray only to see the snow get higher and higher until you are snowed in and the only solution is to tunnel your way out, however once you are six feet deep into the snow you realize you’re over your front stairs that go down flatten out then go down a couple more and you realize it’s perfect for a slide, and working the day away you manage to complete it and are the proud owner of the first tunnel snow slide of the season only to wake up the next morning to find out that it caved in because of a pre-meditated snow ball hit from Mr. Johnson who’s always had a monopoly on snow activities, and it was all because you forgot to shovel his side walk yesterday, thus making the twenty five year rivalry more intense then ever with you’re condo neighbour.

Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
When you make a new account on a social media network as a business and you have to learn how to use tags or whatever the word is that follows what was once known as the pound sign and you struggle to know if it’s actually working since nothing seems to change day in and day out and all you can wonder is if tags actually work or if someone just sits somewhere in the world and laughs at what you write while a random generator gives you a general word because AI is slowly taking over the world. Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
Day 17: Mathematical Inaccuracy
That moment when you are in University/Post-secondary and while you’re in class your professor says that you will have three mid-terms and a final during one term and you start to think to yourself, wouldn’t it be better to call them quarter terms but what do you know you’re the student and your math professor has a PhD in Math so clearly he has a better understanding of fractions then you do, which sparks a life crisis within you because you realize half is equivalent to a quarter and three quarters, meaning Math is tough and you have to accept it but on the flip side even if you get a twenty five percent that should still be equivalent to a fifty percent, right? Tomorrow’s A Different Day.
Day 18: Generational Inexperience
When your parents think they know what’s best for you and watch as you chase your dreams only to put you down for not making any money because you thought you’d challenge the system, and they would never stand for that so you lay a wake at night thinking about these things and the importance of money, all because you’re parents haven’t learned to use the internet and don’t understand what an independent IT technician is, that also volunteers at retirement homes setting up computers, to build up ten years of experience that their generation demands for an entry level job.

Day 20: Taking A Chance
When you’re unemployed because you saved up for a few years to give your dreams a shot only after three months of not getting a pay check your parents start to wonder if this is really the best thing for you, and because of that they start to pawn you off on other people looking for employees behind your back and you really start to wonder if you are actually alone in the world or if you’re parents are just old and don’t understand the concept of taking a chance in doing what they love because they never got to do it themselves.
