Hump Day

Wednesdays are hump days. I have a love/hate relationship with Wednesdays.

Things I hate:

  • they are my LONGEST day of the week with job 1/school/job 1/job 2/job 3
  • SwingKid works a double shift. I only sometimes see him
  • it's the middle. you're the furthest from the last weekend...but not quite to the current weekend.
Things I love:

  • it's the day before Thursday and I LOVE Thursdays
  • I usually get a lot done on Wednesdays
  • I can catch up on all my tv shows
  • i can hang out with Roommate R and not feel bad for neglecting SwingKid.
