You got: A spa day!

You really need to treat yo' self to a full day of relaxation and pampering. Take a day-trip to the spa with a friend, or do this on your own for a totally meditative, restorative day all to yourself. Figure out what treatment you want, and save up weekly until you can afford it (and maybe a little extra for when they try to up-sell treatments and you really don't want to say no). Or buy yourself a heated massage cushion for your chair and never move again. Find one here.
