In Which I Complain About Productivity

Is there anyone on this planet who likes Mondays?

Mondays are the slump of the week. From September to June it means the beginning of the school week. For adults it means the beginning of the work week. And for me, it means wake up at 6 and be productive.

I HATE BEING PRODUCTIVE!

I should rephrase that. I don’t hate it, but I definitely enjoy being lazy more. I always have a day or two a week where I do laundry, finish any unfinished business, organize my closet, etc. But for the rest of the week I just enjoy sitting on my sofa and watching Doctor Who and Saturday Night Live. I like sitting in my slippers and exercise shorts not doing anything. It’s just the type of person I am.

On Mondays it all changes. I get up at 6, shower, get dressed, do my hair, pack my briefcase (yes, I use a briefcase as a backpack, because it’s cool) and eat my oatmeal. Yes, I eat oatmeal. If you put enough brown sugar in it it’s like cereal. I’m flat busy from 6 o’clock to 7:20, which is when my dad get in the car to drive me and my little brother to school.

From that moment on, I’m busy like a honey bee. I go to first period, second period, third period with only five minutes of a break between each one. Then I go to lunch and have to eat and do homework almost at the same time. Fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh period all follow that with small breaks. That’s six hours of me running around and learning. Not to mention that only two of my classes don’t have the words Advanced Placement or Honors. It’s hectic. And after school I have to do homework, take my dog for a walk, eat dinner, and all of the other time-consuming things I do during the day. It’s like hell on earth. Only you get dessert every night Smile

See? Productivity is terrible. I have five days of all that and only two days of sitting around watching television and wearing slippers.

Alright. Enough of my ranting. You all have your own similar rants somewhere stored inside of you. Mondays are not lovely and they even have a song about it. So, if you are thinking, “I hate Mondays” read this and tell me why your Monday was terrible. You might find some people who sympathize.

Lots of love and caring and other forms of affection.
