Everybody’s working for the weekend. Or at least that is what I hear. When I take the weekend off – and by off, I mean I rarely watch television, go to the movies, read a newspaper, and am generally scarce from the web and social media – I return completely out of touch with the world, and find myself struggling to get back into a routine come Monday morning.

Perhaps it is just me, but does this happen to you, too?

  1. all the freaking time man. it helps me to take some time before I leave on friday to establish a list of what I need to do

  2. Weekends are all about stepping away from the workplace and regaining your life. As a result it’s hard to switch back to that mindset

  3. I used to, back in school and when I had a more demanding (but also more enjoyable as I loved what I was doing) job.

    Now, though? There is no “getting” lost, I’m lost all the time. Doesn’t help that my current “job” has no rhyme or reason, no rhythm to get in or out of. Don’t get me wrong, I’m doing something I’m proud of (taking care of a disabled relative non-stop 24/7), but aside from medication schedules and meal prep and cleanup, there is no normalcy or regularly scheduled activity. There isn’t a groove to get into, so I often just feel like I’m on a glitchy bare-minimum auto pilot.
