No. Friday Blues Is not Equal Monday Blues

Mondays are such a tough day for me and i think virtually for almost everyone lol. Fridays, we all go agog with sighs and ohhhs and ahhhs, celebrating with #tgif, #friyays hashtags and memes across all social media platforms. Friday blues starts seeping in Thursdays evening. We are slowly going crazy and looking forward to the end of the Friday's activities especially those of us who are still crazy enough to hold 9 to 5 jobs! Entrepreneurship is key to financial freedom! We are getting there gradually and lots of blogs will be dedicated to the issue of financial freedom in the near future.

Now back to my gist. I hate Mondays. I know you do too. No need pretending haha. When it is Friday, there is this palpable relief . It's like we all are holding our breaths from Monday through to Friday, not "really breathing the way we ought to breathe. We are "living" but  not really living. Wednesdays, people especially at workplaces all around the world, are already looking forward to Friday. We are hoping Thursday will just fly in somewhere and land in Wednesday we so we could hurry it along and herald Friday in!

Thursdays, anticipation is tending on the high side  (on a a scale of 1 to 10, its 10.9999999 lol) and the craziness is already literally seeping from people's "pores". We want to hurry Thursday along! You are wasting too much time hanging around Thursday. Can you be gone already? We need space for Friday to stay when it arrives! Our whole body is humming. We are "eyeing" boss man. Saying to ourselves "don't worry, amma getrarout here tomorrow and you can't do natin!

Then Friday arrives. The way Friday comes does not matter in anyway. Blazing through the sun, peeping through dark clouds, dancing in the rain. No Sir. It does not matter. All we know and care about is that Friday has come and now we can "unhold" the breaths we've been holding all week! Yeah! We love Friday blues. Friday blues are those kinda blues that make you all warm like the soulful ballads of Michael Bolton and Marvin Gaye. Thank God its Friyay! Friday is one big crazy party, people go crazy, weekend getaways being planned across the globe  and i tend to believe that more mistakes are made on Fridays than all the other days put together! Then we "sun" our teeth like Mr Happy Dog here! I get that Friday blues a lot like Mr Happy Dog i tell you.

Fridays, after work, we go home. Happy! We want to put our feet up, sit on the couch for long hours. Watch our favourite soaps on TV. See Jon Snow slay the undead (did i get that right? Well if you are a fan of GOT, you know what i am talking about) and Annalise Keating carry out legal magic to get away with every crime under the sun and then sleep off on the  couch. If you are lucky, you get woken up to go sleep on your cozy bed or else you crash on the couch. Friday gone. Fridays could mean clubbing with the boys and girls. Hitting one joint, crashing another joint into the wee hours of Saturday morning. Friday gone. Already!

The euphoria from Friday blues takes us to Saturday. Saturdays for me are for doing the laundry, grocery shopping, visiting the hair salon for a new hairdo (thank you, i do my own manicure and pedicure at home with DIYs that i have perfected so i am not giving anyone a dime to get my feet washed lol) and meal prepping for the coming week. So on Saturdays, if i am lucky it is either a combination of laundry, meal prepping and hairdo, grocery shopping and meal prepping. On the Saturdays, that are bit***, I will have to do all of that. Looking "put together" is a must for me so i have to have my hair done even if the timing isn't convenient. I'll go to every length to get it done (i just discovered wigs are in the new thing now so i will likely invest in that. Do you see a blog idea here like i do?). Now imagine a Saturday as hectic as that. Then on Sunday, i go seek the Lord's face because He is the one that has always had my back, through thick and thin, the good and the bad. He is my Personal Person and His grace keeps me going, opens doors and brings favour. So you see, i have to be in Church on Sundays. Did i mention that i also do meal prepping on Sundays too? I can't cook everything on Saturday of course! It'd be stressful and to avoid stress, you have to break huge tasks down into smaller ones (see blog on overcoming stress here Tick. Tock. Tick: Stress levels high

After all said and done on Sundays. Its evening. Sunday evening. We all try to pack in as many things as we can do during the weekends and then we are not really refreshed by Sunday evenings. Weekends where we are supposed to be relaxing, chilling, chilaxing (relaxing and chilling at same time lol) and sleeping so we could "fuel up" for the week ahead, we use it shopping till we drop (all the babes get in here. We all are guilty lol!), clubbing, doing one too many things while thinking and hoping that we would still have enough time to rest well and then a rude sound wakes us up the next day. Of course it's the alarm. 5am Monday morning!

Imagine a collective sigh by everyone at every business and workplace around the globe, sounding the same time. A sigh bordering on mild despair and total resignation. That is the feeling of Monday blues. Unlike Fridays, how Monday arrives matters. If it is blazing through the sun, we want to dodge it. If it is peeping through the clouds, we wish for a magical blanket to cover the clouds so Monday wouldn't have a chance to come through and if and when it comes dancing through the rains, we just want to stump the hell outta it! Funny right? Monday blues! Imagine Busta Rhymes doing an RnB number. I reckon that's just how Monday blues sounds like. Monday blues reminds us of how we spent our weekends. Monday tells our "bodies" instead of "us" that it has arrived. No. Friday. Blues. Is. Not. Equal. Monday. Blues.

To each, his/her own. That is why we all, are uniquely different.

  1. Great post! Mondays are terrible! I have a hard time getting out of bed! Friday I can get up early because I know I can leave work early! But the hours on friday afternoon can be so slow until you can leave work. Sundays are my prep meal day and laundry and write blog posts for the upcoming week. Saturdays I spend time with family and friends or go shopping!

  2. Hi, Jennifer Pompaski,

    But I LOVE Mondays contrary to everybody else’s hatred for Mondays — it’s that day of the week when I feel most alive !

    This is just to let You know that I was here as I promised.

    You’ve got a GREAT Blog and You just earned a FAN. Cheers !

  3. Well, my case is absolutely different maybe because of the nature of my job. Wednesdays are not friendly at all because our crew days is mostly Wednesdays, If I have to travel, I will always wake up early realizing that I am going to be in the sea on three hours journey. While at work, I don’t get rest at earlier hours of the morning until I am sure all names are on manifest and workers are boarded. Waoh! I love Sundays because it is a half day work, the only day I dress cute in my mufti to fellowship. Monday is lovely too because after the short rest on Sundays I do feel refreshed to start a new week. Every other days of the week are same to me but for those in cooperate offices, I think Friday is a happy day as you wrote above; no wonder thus: TGIF! Lol! Cheers and well done my Kinging Queen !

    1. So you are officially the 2nd Tribe member that has agreed that Friday is a happy day. Your job does sound like its tedious, then again you sound like you love it which is very important. Loving what you do, that is! I hope you are refreshed now and looking to having a good week!
