weekending

with 6 comments

this whole week has pretty much been my weekend.  no school, no work (that i did anyway), just all food and play.  the life of a student is great.  the life of a student on break is even better.  so this week got me thinking of the different kind of weekenders there are.  check them out:

busy-betty/donnie-do-it-all: i do not understand how these people do it.  these are the 40+ hours a week workers and then on their non-working days they’re running around getting other things done.  if you ask them, they’ll say, “i just don’t have time to do it during the week.”  errands, laundry, shopping, studying, etc.  they even get up early!  is that crazy or what?  mad props to you all.  i think your future is much more secure than mine is.

lazy-lucy/sleepy-sam: this is the professional sleeper.  as in, if sleep was a job, they’d be raking in 6 figures easy.  maybe they worked 40+ hours during the week, but on the weekend, that’s their catch up on rest days.  waking up in the pm, these people have no idea that breakfast is even an option on saturday. you can usually find them on the couch during the day with their eyes glazed over watching tv.  and when they wake up, they’re pretty groggy up til evening when they sometimes turn into the next category.  can you tell i’m making these names up as i go?  true they sound very official and gender-inclusive, but i made them up.  feel free to use them if you wish.

clubbing-clarissa/party-pete: they take every advantage of not having to wake up early to go to work the next day by staying up all night loooooong.  these are the go-to people if you’re looking for a good time on a weekend late night.  expect to be out when most “normal” weekenders are deep in sleep.  they have some kind of superhuman ability to stay up late and not require sleep while a normal person would pass out from exhaustion.  can also be coupled with the above two categories but not the last one.

nerdy-natalie/dorky-dennis: this is where i fit in.  these people probably don’t work as much as the above groups (in my experience at least).  these people are looking for things to do during the weekend but don’t want to stay up too late.  they find excitement in board games, having dinner with people and/or making it a blockbuster night.  these people like to sleep at a reasonable hour and don’t like get “crunk” unless it’s we’re talking about monopoly.  not to say these people are nerds or dorks necessarily.  but i’d say i’m a dork, and seeing how this category is directly specifically at me, the name is staying.

what kind of weekender are you?

  4. i feel like this apt has the tendency to be a bunch of nerd-natalies, but if i were to try really hard, i’d be a good lazy-lucy. like A- kinda lazy-lucy 🙂 if i got paid to sleep, i’m pretty sure i’ll push myself harder to sleep longer.
