Was There Ever A Time When You Did Not Look Forward To Friday?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most people look forward to Friday. Students look forward to it after a long, busy week of school, and employees look forward to it after an equally long busy week at work. It is the end of the workweek, and the time has come for them to go home and relax. On Friday, many people say "T.G.I.F" Is it possible for a person to dread Friday?

A student might dread Friday if he has a test coming up. Once the test is over, however, he should have some time before the next test takes place. he can use this time to relax and study. He might ask his classmates about forming a study group. By studying with others, they may pick up on concepts that he may not. If they form a study group, and he joins them, all group members will be prepared for test day.

An employee might dread Friday if he has an evaluation coming up. Evaluations are used to decide who stays and who goes, and no one wants to be fired. First, he will have a temination on his record, which will make it harder to find future work. Second, the time out of work will be very difficult because there wil still be bills to pay. A person who is fired will have to find a way to pay the bills while he does his job search. Hopefully, he will be able to find a job, and then his life will be much better.

When I was in the fourth grade, I remember my fourth grade class going to the Y for a swimming lesson. We got a good lesson, but there was a part I always dreaded: the diving board. I am not sure why I dreaded it. Perhaps it was a fear of heights. I am afraid of heights, but only if I do not have something in front of me to stop me from falling. If I have a cement shelf or a window in front of me, I am fine. I can look down, enjoy what a great view there is, and not be scared. If I do not have anything in front of me to keep me from falling, on the other hand, I get scared. I would probably take a quick look at the great view and step back. That way, I would not fall.

Fourth grade was a long time ago, however, and now, I do look forward to Friday. I usually have research papers and discussion questions due no later than midnight Sunday. If I manage my time right Monday through Thursday, Friday should be very light where the schoolwork is concerned, allowing me more time to write articles and to run. That way, I will have the time and energy to write great articles for my readers to read.
