I thought that today was going to start out fine and end up not fine. In other words, take a turn for the worst but it hasn’t, YEAH! I do have to admit that Mondays can be manic Mondays, just like the old song from a group I have forgotten the name of. Is the Bangles? Now I think of it! That’s it, YES! I have learned that not all Mondays are manic Mondays. It really depends on how you perceive it I guess. Today is NOT a manic Monday for me at all and I am sitting here at school taking a break from ALL my learning right now. I had awakened with confidence that my day was going to be just fine even though getting up at 6:30 a.m. is not always my cup of tea anymore – even for school. If I have to get up at 6:30 a.m., then I will, which means that school is the reason why I get up early on Mondays and Wednesdays. I would sleep in if I could but getting all the time in I can at school really makes a difference in your learning.
I think I can understand that Monday is not the best day of the week for many people because after a two day break from things, it can be difficult getting into a pattern even though you have done the same pattern for a long time in your job, schedule, and ordinary daily routine. I know that at times I get down and or severely depressed after being the same routine over and over again and there is a break inbetween. A good example is, this past semester I had about two months in the summer without a routine but plans, and it seemed to screw things up for me in the long run because the pattern was not the same. I had gotten depressed after seeing all my family this summer because the routine was not there anymore and I anticipated school to begin too soon that anxiety and depression set in for a couple of weeks or so. No, this is not a manic Monday at all. Not for me, anyway.
