Thank God it's Friday!
How many times have I heard that or read TGIF in my lifetime? Probably more so now that social networking sites are more prevalent. Twitter and Facebook are loaded with people stating this proclamation every Friday.
I can't help but wonder why. Is it because people hate their jobs and school so much? Is it because the weekend is just a change of pace?
Is it because they can sleep in, or stay up all night drinking?
Yeah of course it is.
I'm not questioning the plans and the functionality of it all. Not I'm questioning the importance of it.
Have we pegged our lives all for the weekend? Are we missing out on the important of daily progress for just two days?
The 9 to 5, Monday through Friday rat race has never seemed natural to me. And I'm the kind of person who doesn't mind working everyday. However this structure that has been forged over time by society baffles me.
Did we evolve to the work week time frame, or was it set out by those in power as something achievable for productivity sake? I'd like to know. Why can't everyday be the weekend?
Does anyone ever say Thank God it's Monday or Tuesday? Aside from those who actually have it off? I think not. Well you'll always get those positive happy face people. If they say this, just slap them please.
