Happy Friday Everyone

I used to have a coworker who would say this every Friday morning.  Sometimes it was sarcastic and sometimes quite genuine–I also had a coworker who called Thursday Friday Junior–but that is another story.

On both Friday and Monday, I usually ask my students questions about their weekend plans or what they did on the weekend.  As you can imagine their answers these days are pretty thin.  They answer with one word sentences like “Netflix”, or “surfing the internet” or”nothing”.  Some of the more articulate ones lament “what can we do?”

I am sure we can all relate.  However, I want to do my best to encourage people.  Yes, the weekend may look a little less inviting if you haven’t been working.  And not having the opportunity to engage in what used to be normal weekend activities, might seem a bit depressing.  I just want you to remember that it can still be Happy Friday.  You can make it one with a bit of creativity and effort–you might have the time.

For this long weekend, I just want to spread the message.

Happy Friday Everyone.

  1. Happy Friday to you, too! Strange how time and the days have slowed to a crawl and yet the weeks go by quickly, from one Friday to the next!

    There’s a Blogspot blog called “Happy Damn Friday”, published weekly with a positive thought for the week.

    Now that I’m back to work, all I have is the weekends again. I’m going to pack mine FULL of good stuff. Riding this afternoon, tennis with my daughters, cut some grass, maybe take a nap in there somewhere… Happy Friday indeed!
