Why Fridays Are a Breath of Fresh Air, and Mondays are a Punch to the Gut.

Ah, Mondays. The day of the week that’s so miserable, it makes the plague look like a picnic. It’s the day that makes you want to curl up in a ball and cry until the next weekend comes around. You know, the weekend, that magical time when you don’t have to deal with the drudgery of work or the soul-sucking routine of everyday life.

But let’s not forget about Fridays, the day of the week that’s so glorious, it makes the gods jealous. It’s the day that makes you feel like you’re on top of the world like anything is possible like you could run a marathon and then party until dawn. It’s the day that makes you want to jump up and down and shout to the heavens, “I made it! I survived another week!”

So, what is it about these two days that elicit such different reactions? Well, it’s simple, really. Fridays are the light at the end of the tunnel, the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and the ultimate reward for a week’s worth of hard work. Mondays, on the other hand, are like the bouncer at the club, the gatekeeper to a week’s worth of misery, the harbinger of doom.

And let’s not forget the names themselves. “Monday” sounds like a punishment, like something you did wrong and now you have to pay the price. “Friday,” on the other hand, sounds like a party, like something you’ve been looking forward to all week. It’s like the name alone can determine the mood for the entire day.

But why is this the case? Is it simply a matter of attitude, or is there something more to it? Well, it’s a bit of both. Your attitude towards Mondays and Fridays can undoubtedly have an impact on how you experience them. But there’s also something about the day itself that can affect your mood.

For example, on Fridays, people tend to feel more relaxed and carefree. They’re looking forward to the weekend, and their minds are already in vacation mode. On the other hand, on Mondays, people tend to be more serious and focused. They’re gearing up for the workweek ahead, and their minds are already in work mode.

And let’s not forget about the Sunday Scaries. You know, that feeling of dread that starts to creep up on you as the weekend draws to a close and Monday looms on the horizon. It’s like Monday is trying to infiltrate your Sunday and steal all your joy.

But let’s be real; no amount of positive thinking can turn Monday into Friday. Mondays will always be Mondays, and they will always have the power to ruin even the best of days. So, instead of trying to change our attitudes towards Mondays, let’s just embrace our hatred for them. Let’s revel in the glory of Fridays, let’s count down the minutes until the weekend starts, and let’s never let Mondays steal our joy again.
