Writer's Block: Just another manic Monday

Do you look forward to returning to work/school on Mondays or do you live for the weekend? What do you enjoy most about weekends? What do you dread most about school and/or work?

At the moment, weekends don't feel that different to weekdays. For instance, right now, it's Friday night (or Saturday morning), and I keep having to remind myself that tomorrow is Saturday. That is because I have had a week off from lectures and classes, and so haven't had anything to differentiate the days from one another. In a usual week, I have lectures and classes through the week, and nothing at the weekend. But because I am a student, I often spend the weekend working, on essays and reading. So aside from the fact that I have no classes, weekends do not feel that different to me.
However, when I was working in a full-time job, the weekends were important. When I worked in a shop, more often than not, I would end up working on a Saturday. It meant that I did not really appreciate Saturday, because it was no different to a Tuesday, or a Thursday. Apart from the fact that the shop would be busier, on account of everyone else having the day off. Then, when I got a job in which I worked Monday to Friday, the weekend became very important to me. I had never really realised how good 5pm on a Friday evening could feel until then. Saturday mornings became my favourite time of the week, because they held so much promise. I still feel that way, even if I do often spend the weekend doing work for university. I especially like Saturday mornings when I haven't been out on the Friday night. It means I wake up feeling fresh and ready for whatever the weekend may contain. Saturday usually means shopping, or at least a trip into town. I love weekend food, because I always try to eat something nice for dinner on a Saturday night, even if it is just chips from the chip shop. As long as its something I love. And then, of course, Sunday has its own appeal, because of the roast dinner. I haven't had a roast dinner for 3 months, so I am craving one now. And Sunday night tea is always delicious too.
I am definitely a weekend person!

Writer's Block: Time in a bottle

Imagine that you have a time machine. Which deceased musician would you most want to travel back in time to watch perform live?

It is too hard to pick just one, as there are many musicians that I would love to see perform live. The obvious answer is The Beatles, which is what a lot of people have said. My mum saw them live in Southend when she was a teenager. I would also love to see Frank Sinatra. Actually, I would like to see him perform with the rest of the Rat Pack, because I think it would be fun.


I have just joined, and am trying to find my way around the site. Also supposed to be writing an essay but this is far more interesting to me right now. I might try to use it to do some writing, once I have some spare time I definitely want to spend some more time on writing, so we'll see how it goes.
