This week has been such a weird one that I honestly thought that Friday would never be an actual thing.
If you think about it, people with real people jobs had their ‘Friday’ on Tuesday because of the National Holiday on Wednesday but then flash forwarded to Sunday on the Wednesday because they all had to go to work the next day.
I, however, somehow (in a very, very twisted way) lucked out because I work Monday straight through to Friday and have the entire weekend off to frolick in the sunshine, wearing whatever it is I please, and generally just enjoy my time away from the work place.
Additionally, I was paid time and a half on a 9 hour work day so I’m not complaining (and neither are my feet because HELLO NEW PAIR OF SHOES – or purse, I haven’t really decided yet but whatever I buy it’s gonna be SPECTACULAR).
I also work such early mornings now that I’m usually done by the time people are finishing with their lunch breaks and I’m on my way home to either nap, cook something and then nap, or out and about with friends and family.
This full-time summer job life is not a bad one and I honestly couldn’t be more fortunate enough to actually enjoy the work I do.
Tonight I went out with some friends and enjoyed some drinks and laughs. I worked the entire day, but the night was spent the right way. Drinking a stronger than normal drink, laughing at a perfectly timed bad joke, and dreaming about the moment I got to immerse myself into my bed – knowing I didn’t have to get up early the next day.
I plan to do absolutely nothing with one of my days off and I couldn’t be more excited.
Who knows what will happen?!
So many possibilities.
That’s a great thing about being a young adult, I may have bills and such to pay – but at least my Saturday’s are not saturated with the errands and chores I neglected to do during the week.
I, friends, am free to sleep to my hearts content.
And my heart is nearly never content with any amount of sleep no matter how great.
Alright, I’m losing the ability to human and the cat, as always, is already curled up and sleeping soundly. So I’ll bow out gracefully and see you all tomorrow!
