I hate when I have two great days in a row, only to have the final day of the work week be a down day. Can’t I negotiate how these days fall? Why couldn’t I have good (Thursday) and good (Friday) so I could be pushed forward into a good weekend. Why did I need to have a blah day today?
I’m mentally exhausted by Friday afternoon, and it probably makes me sound pretty dorky and old, but I like nothing more than going to bed early on Friday night. Like 9pm early. Sometimes I read or watch podcasts. Sometimes I just fall into a deep sleep.
So a blah Friday, well that only increases my desire to go to bed early. But sadly, its not much of a pleasure on blah Friday’s as it is on positive, upbeat, happy Fridays. It’s desperation. Like I’m going to ruin my whole weekend if I don’t get some relief quickly, so my only option is an early bedtime. And invites for Friday night, despite their appeal, usually get passed over on blah Fridays. I will sacrifice fun for relief.
But then I look at the weekend and I’m encouraged. If I can just wake up on Saturday morning (preferably early) I can have a weekend. I can catch up, write and enjoy social time so much more. So it’s not a total loss, if I can catch up on Friday night, I can definitely turn it around. Here’s to catch up.
