Motivation: MotherFuc…I mean Monday (a pleading letter)

Dear Monday,

No one likes you. You start our week and hold us hostage. You somehow make each moment within the day drag out to no end. Each minute seems like eternity. You never apologize for cutting the weekend short and you burst in unexpectedly while we are still partying and enjoying ourselves. You’re filled with responsibility and harsh realities. If you were beer, you’d be Bush (no offence to those who like bush beer lol). You’re causing friction to other days in the week. We now have issues with Sunday because you both are so tightly nit together. Don’t do this. Don’t bring others down with you.

I know this seems harsh, but it needs to be said. Please take this as constructive criticism to your awful ways and destructive nature to others. Please become just as cool as Saturday and Sunday. Become another day in our weekend. We will cherish you and never complain. We’ll move on to disliking Tuesday but that’s no big deal anyway. Tuesday doesn’t do much currently.

Please don’t cry or feel sad. We just want you to change for the better.

Sincerely,

The World.
