Everyone loves the weekend. This is a fact. If you don’t believe me, name one person you know that hates weekends. I bet you can’t!
But there is one negative about weekends.
|No school!||Closer to Monday…|
|No getting up early!|
|No school lunches!|
Every weekend, I get the I-Don’t-Like-Mondays feeling.
On Friday after school is the best time. You know that you have the entire weekend to relax. And I walk home happy, looking forward to Saturday.
Then Saturday comes. I wake up, but I don’t have to get up for however long I like. The only problem is… the longer I stay in bed, the more I feel like am wasting time. And by the time I get up and eat breakfast and get dressed, half the morning has gone by already, just like that.
When it’s lunchtime on Saturday, I know that a whole quarter of the weekend has flown past me. ‘In one and a half days,’ I think to myself, ‘it will be Monday again!’
Which makes me feel like this
Saturday evening comes very, very quickly. Very, very quickly. And Saturday evening means that it has been half of the weekend. That’s right.
Sunday is even worse. I rush around the house trying to do everything I wanted to do that weekend. I panic when I get to lunch time. I read a whole book. I tidy my room until it’s spotless. I wander around the house, and one side of me is saying
It’s fine, really! You’ve got a whole day!
But the other side is saying
I have to do things what should I do I need to use this time to do stuff I’m wasting too much time thinking
And it goes on and on like this
Stop it! Relax!
I can’t I can’t it’s Monday tomorrow
Listen: just sit down and read your book. You’ve done all your homework. You don’t have to do anything.
I do I do I have to –
BE QUIET!!!! Calm down and eat a banana!!!
But I’ve already had five bananas why do I need another one
Just do it!
And as you can see, I could go on and on forever. But do you know what? By the time I get to Monday, it really isn’t so bad.
