    Wondering if anyone else out there gets depressed after an eventful weekend. My girlfriend threw me a surprise b-day party this weekend and invited a bunch of friends and family to visit for the weekend. I was ridiculously surprised and had a great weekend. However, now I am ridiculously depressed and don't know whether to apportion it to the drinking, lack of sleep, and the fact that the weekend is over or if there is some other reason. But I have noticed this has happened to me in the past after eventful and exciting weekends.

    Any thoughts?

    That used to happen to me when I was younger. I used to feel extra bored after having a busy weekend. Or I might feel guilty for spending too much money or for not finishing my homework.

    Only recently have I realized that being bored is actually OK (if that makes sense). I am able to appreciate the fact that I some times have free time to do anything I wish without extravagant plans. Sometimes I read a book or watch TV or do some chores. Maybe it's weird that I have learned to accept boring moments? Not that I am sitting around doing nothing all the time :)

    Anyway, I think it's pretty normal.

    I am rarely bored and in fact don't remember the last time I was bored and enjoyed it. I'm so busy and pretty much in a steady state of anxiety because of school. For the most part I am in control of my mental and emotional state. Being surprised like that was quite freaky. I underestimated how much I actually rely on a planned state of being. I have to think about things for extended periods of time to be comfortable. Don't get me wrong. Seeing all my friends and some family was incredible and how my girlfriend managed all of this is incredible to me. I'm just now realizing I have a lot of learning to do in life. I saw how much everyone cared about me and in turn suffered an emotional roller coaster. Now that coaster is tired.

    Yep, 'king oath I do.

    I hate the "back from holidays" blues - they get me all the time. It's like a highly noxious form of Mondayitis that you get no matter what day it is.

    It has a lot to do with the drinking mate, I often feel the same. I normally find that after 3 - 4 days and something new to look forward to every thing's peachy again ;)
