I do not get the Monday blues. Thanks to the amount of my pay, I only have to work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, so every time Monday rolls around, it already feels like a Wednesday because I only have two more days to work after Monday.

To quote the movie Office Space: "Sounds like a case of the Mondays"

I sometimes do but have to get going. This is probably because I have loads and loads of classes on Mondays? huhu..thank goodness the semester is almost over here in my school, so I'm sure I will have a new and hopefully a better and freer schedule when the new school year starts.

I am one of those people out there who always get "Monday Blues" as you mentioned.hehehe. It feels like my body refused to cooperate when Monday arrived, I don't feel like waking up early and just loved sleeping. Maybe because of the weekend comforts, plus it feels I still have some activities left to be finished that I feel super tired and lazy when Monday arrived.

Monday mornings seem like an enemy of mine most weeks. I dread them happening. It just seems like nothing is getting done. Perhaps because of the fact that in fact nothing is really done. Monday mornings experience a blank slate for the most part, which can be good or bad, depending on how you look at things. I suppose if you consider it to be a fresh and new week, with new possibilities, then Monday mornings are absolutely fine. However, if you look at it, it just means this mountain of things that have to be done. These tasks that might not be that hard, but the simple fact is they are not done. The week has just started and in many ways, the factor of the mostly unknown that a brand new week, can be quite discouraging. The fact that after completing pretty much everything the previous week, it seems like mostly everything gets reset in some ways and I have to work though the week. Yeah, that can be an absolutely downer. Still, most Mondays are those that I dread. I wonder what it is going to bring. Sometimes my dread is misplaced, as nothing really bad is happening. Other times, I was right to be very apprehensive about the week. It is ironic in many ways that many look forward to Friday but while it does mean the end of the week, it also means that we are quite closer to the next Monday than we are at any other weekday. Just an interesting thought that I had.

I have just completed my first ever paid weeks work, and i'm feeling the blues already! I know it won't be so bad when i get in tomorrow morning, as i made many good friends out of my colleges already. I just hate the thought of getting up early and trudging a long day at work! It'll be fine. :)

Every monday without fail I always get that pang of depression and misery when it hits me that the week-end is well and truly over, and I'm forced to slog my way through yet another dull, eventless week

Yes. I do. I guess that it is probably because I do not like my job. It is hard to get up and start another work week.
