Miserable Monday Morning
28th Oct 2013
By: Patricia Kamara

Haven’t you ever wondered why Monday is ever so away from Friday and why Friday is so close to Monday? I have and it never really made sense to me it really didn’t. I hate Mondays from begin to end. Every single second of that day is horrifying but, the most detestable part of that sickening day is the morning. Monday mornings are the most despicable thing known to mankind. But, in order for me to explain to you why Mondays are so dreadful, I have to go back to the better parts of the week that occur before this dreaded day. Before Monday morning there is Sunday evening. Sunday evening is basically leisurely times for you to enjoy while you mourn for the day that comes next-they are meant to be anyway. It depends on what type of person you are, I took the initiative to classify these people into four categories; the over achievers, the forgetful, the slackers and the typical or normal. The overachievers are the studious kind; they study too hard, work too much and over think everything this though, doesn’t mean that they are intellectual people because, they normally don’t do it on intentionally whereas, you think they went the extra mile. Overachievers are the type of people who most teachers want as their students and normally end up being the teachers little pet. If you were to tell an overachiever to write you a response for a three page chapter you will end up with a paragraph essay instead. Now let’s go back to the topic, unlike the majority the overachievers are terribly busy trying to finish up last week’s assignment and trying to do a little bit extra. These people end up being not only overwhelmed but also, incredibly irksome to others. Imagine, you finished up all your work correctly, were proud enough to put your name on it and in the end, probably on another miserable Monday, you get a disappointing lecture on the type of work your teacher expects. The truly aggravating part though, is that your teacher is comparing your above average work to the overachievers over thought work. Isn’t incredibly maddening? In a nutshell, the overachievers were so busy on Sunday evening that they went to bed late. Now, on Monday the overachievers are uncharacteristically tired and their perkiness and over-achieving-ness has worn out and they are no longer these busy-bees but more like cranky apes. On the contrary, the slackers are the lazybones. They are the sort of laid back, detached kind of people and they really couldn’t care less. On Sunday evening they sleep, eat, watch TV and then do it all over again. Slackers are basically people who avoid any work and effort. If they felt like it, they did their work, they most likely did it all in a hurry on that Friday, they just give it a lick and a promise or they might do it at the very last minute, and I’m not exaggerating, I mean doing it the morning its due in the car on the way to school or the period before its due. But, normally they don’t do it. The sluggers normally sleep often but they never seem to have enough sleep and therefore, they do everything lazily. Nevertheless, on Sunday evening they tend to stay up more than usual so, on Monday, these layabouts are completely good for nothing they are not only sluggish but also, bad-tempered. Then there are the forgetful. Hence their name, the forgetful are forgetful. These absent minded people never seem to remember anything, especially when and what. When a forgetful gets an assignment they forget about it as soon as they walk out of that class. It’s like it came in from one ear and came out another. It’s sad really, because it’s not that they don’t want to do the work or they don’t putting effort because they try, constantly but, it never seems to work it just doesn’t. I think it’s something to do with their brains maybe, they aren’t mentally stable. Anyway, on Sunday evening the forgetful will call with their friends and the assignment might come up in the conversation and they are like “oh, yeah, I completely forgot. When is it due? Tomorrow? Really? I didn’t know that. I guess I didn’t hear her or I might’ve forgotten let me do it then. Bye.” Now, the forgetful specimen being their absentminded selves fail to remember how to start so, they wonder around the room, normally scratching their head or something of that sort and finally, make an assumption on how to it and spend the entire Sunday night doing it. Hence, they are completely worn out and senseless in the morning and sometimes hand in incomplete work. They normally have no clue of what is going on around them; it’s ridiculously sad and somewhat funny but sadder. Last but not least (they have the largest population because, many people fall under this category) are the typical or normal. These are the sort of mediocre and average kind, they are a run on the mill, adequate but nothing stunning or special, they are just there. Unlike the rest, the normal are ordinary, if you were to tell a normal to write you a one paragraph response on a three page chapter, you will get exactly that. Now remember the regular wont hand in anything remarkably good or bad, they will just do it. They might occasionally put in effort if they choose to but, don’t count on it. The normal will do most of their work on Friday and Saturday and on Sunday they do what they are meant to-they leisure around and mourn the day that awaits them. But, here is where the twist kicks in, although they try to get to bed early, they don’t because they want to enjoy every second of their Sunday evening, therefore, they normally watch a late night movie or talk or night or even wonder around aimlessly. So, on Monday morning they are tired and since everyone around them is tired as well they are also, cranky, sluggish and aimless. So here we are, Monday morning and everyone is in their worst of moods and as you know moods are contagious so if it just so happens that you are NOT in a necessarily bad mood you will eventually be in one, bad mood comes with bad luck as well because, Monday is when you get your test grades, when your stress lines thicken, when you feel sick and Monday morning is normally when you have a lesson, for example math, first thing on your schedule that requires thinking, yes, actual thinking. That is why Monday morning is the most horrifyingly, terribly, despicable thing known to mankind.
