Mondays

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

It is a universal truth among students that Monday is the least pleasant day of the week, and that's putting it delicately.
Why? Well, there's the bags under the eyes from the sleep deprivation as a result of the work teachers expect done over the weekend because, after all, you have the whole weekend to do the work, why shouldn't there be an extra load? With that logic embedded in every teacher's mind, you end up with at least four hours worth of work.

Then again, we might as well get used to working because we're going to be working for the rest of our lives.
So think about this: if you absolutely hate math class, dread doing math homework over the weekend, and cannot wait until the day you're told you never have to find the square root of anything ever again, imagine being stuck in a job you absolutely hate for most likely five to six days with longer hours and no variation in subjects. That would suck, right?
You know how everyone tells you not decide what you wanna do with your life based on how much you're going to get paid? This is the reason why––every day will be a Monday morning.
I don't think anyone can stress enough how much regret takes up in their baggage, especially when it comes to choosing money over passion.

Now, I'm not saying that I know all about life's crossroads and that all situations are either right or left, but I guess I'm just rambling on about all these things on this blog because maybe, just maybe, there's someone out there thinking about whatever I'm writing about, and they're looking for answers. I can't say I have all the answers, but sometimes reading another person's thoughts helps mold your own perspective.

Anyway, it's pretty cloudy and cold here for the first time in a long time, and I love it. It's like home, but at home, the trees are quenched and green, rain and umbrellas are close friends, and hot chocolate or coffee is the main food source.

Can you guess where home is?

The least pleasant day of the week is almost over (at least for another six days).

Stay warm,

Alena
