My ideal work week is like 20-25 hours a week max. Or even better is if we didnt have to work period. YES that is what I would really want! I want to win the lottery and retire early and not have to work another day in my life. I can spend the rest of my life relaxing, playing video games everyday and go shopping. Go to bed whenever I like and wake up whenever I like. Not have to deal with rush hour traffic ever. Everyday when I get home Im burnt out and usually by end of Wed I just want to the weekend to hit. Today (seeing that Im typing this on a Wed) is a prime example...Im just burnt out. I hate to say it, but everyday once the clock turns my time to go home, Im just itching to head home. Why? Because ive been there for 8.5 hours already. Ive been in my business attire for 9 plus hours and everyday at this time, I just want nothing more than to get home ASAP and get into my PJs where its so much more comfortable. I know it looks bad, but Im a clock watcher once the time creeps up to my end of day. Hey, if I could wear what I want to work everyday, I would wear a hoodie and trackpants or sweatpants. Athletic wear for the win. I only wear business attire because I have to. After work and on the weekends, I am always in my comfy clothes. Its funny because I used to be the type who dressed up everywhere and was overdressed at all times of the day. But as I got older, you just realize that theres much more important things in life than dressing up all the time. Right now for me its all about wearing what feels the most comfortable and I much prefer to be in comfy attire than business attire 100 times out of 100 times. If I ever have to head somewhere after work or that same night, I will always go home to shower, change into something much more comfortable than head back out to go where I have to go, or get what I have to get. Every Friday Im always completely gassed, so gassed that Friday night I dont even have any energy to go out or stay up past 9pm. I dont know how to prevent this from happening. Its not from lack of sleep, dont get me wrong I get enough sleep (though of course who wouldnt want more). I go to bed at a set time every night (even on weekends), in bed by 9PM and asleep by 10PM at the latest. But the fact weekends are only two days is complete garbage if you ask me. Ive always seen it that way and always will. THeyre so short and always go by like as if it was 4 hours, drives me nuts. Weekends dont feel like any time off at all. Its Fri night, you're all happy and relieved, there is not a better feeling than a Friday late afternoon and Friday night! I Its so nice knowing you can finally have some free time in the next couple days to devote to your hobbies....but next thing you know its Sunday morning than Sunday night. Waking up Sundays stinks cause you know the weekend is pretty much over. I find during the work week, that you get home, shower, clean up, cook supper, make lunch, run get groceries and by the time thats all done...thats pretty much most of my night and day before I have to hit the sack. You have no time to devote to hobbies and interests so I always do that on weekends when I have time. I feel like im tied to a chain during the week ha....work, home, sleep, work, home sleep. I have a really habit of mine, every Sunday I tend to gruel as each hour passes. Obviously Fridays are by far my favourite day of the week and Monday my least favourite, knowing its the start of a new and LOOOONG week. *sigh* Lets face it, life is too short to be working full time jobs. The work week should consist of 3 weekdays with Fri, Sat, Sun, Monday as the weekend. I know some have different schedules and do get 3 days off, but Im talking the norm here, the industry standard. I work 8.5 hour days and it is downright brutal. I much prefer 8, or even better none.
