How many times have you woken up on a Monday morning, cursing the day and wishing that it was still weekend? I have! Many times. In fact, basically every single Monday morning since I’ve been punching the clock.
I’m a firm believer in the 3-day weekend. Who on earth decided that the weekend should only be 2 days short? And for some, only 1 day! Yes, I know, we have to work to make money, to buy stuff, and keep the economy going and blah blah blah. But really, think about it. We only live once! We live on this amazing planet with so many things to do and see. But we can’t really enjoy it if we have to work all the time, now can we?
Just imagine; no Sunday night blues or blue Mondays. You know how excited people get before a long weekend? Now imagine people being excited like that every week. It would be wonderful. I think people will work harder because they have to finish their work before the weekend, people will be more rested, be more positive in general, and have more time to spend with family and friends, which by the way, is the most important thing in the world.
I wonder who would disagree with me on this. I guess there will be arguments like “what about schools and education?” Well, with parents being at home more, maybe they can play a bigger part in their child's education. I believe children learn more from their friends, family and life experiences than in school anyway. Oops, did Teacher Liesl just say that out loud?
