” These past few weekends have all felt like Saturdays to me” this quote popped up on my Facebook feed and I have to agree with it. This sudden ” I can relate to this ” and then guiding my mouse to click on the Like button is rare with me. Especially when it has to do with what actual people say, not the supposed Facebook groups that have funny titles such ” I love white cheese, does that make me racist to other multicolored cheeses? “. Yes I do like browsing through the social networks ranks, sometimes out of pure boredom [ this meaning always ] and just reading what my ” peers ” ( I’m still at the kids table munching on finger bites but I no longer have ketchup NERDS! while they are transitioning onto the adult table) and their statuses are usually about some fight they’re having with someone or some problem in which when asked they reply ” I don’t want to talk about it “ why are you posting it on a social network where everyone is going to see it and want to know what’s wrong but I’m going off track
no you know what I’m going to rant about that now, my blog my rules, just like my juice box my …..NOOOOO my straw has a hole somewhere and the juice doesn’t have a smooth flow into my mouth.
Anyways, the reason why I liked her status was because it was true, first with Xmas we had vacations , both for school and those who work. And now with New Years day, we had days off. So when we return, the ambience is so peculiar, it’s like vacations in school, when you return you don’t remember what to do, it takes you out of that routine until you settle again into that rhythm of counting the days til the weekend, counting the minutes and hours until 5 .
Even right now, it am counting the hours till I have to go to sleep and I don’t want to because that would bring tomorrow faster. However if I stay awake tomorrow I will be a walking asleep deprived zombie so it’s a lose-lose situation.
The day before returning to work/school is a bittersweet day rivaling the day before back to school in the summer ( eh kids will get over it, it’s not like they go to school to learn). You start thinking of all the things you could have done instead of laying in bed and watching lousy reality tv ( I have watched all seasons of Toddlers and Tiaras on Netflix I regret nothing . ) how wasted of a day you manage to well… Waste ( By the way, love that song by Foster the People). But when the next day off comes, which I think is also in January , what do we do. The same freaking thing. We sit on our rear ends, in the magical digital world called the Internet looking at pictures of cats and Jennifer Lawrence……which is something I totally don’t do.
Don’t judge me, reader.
