An online dictionary defines the weekend as “a time period usually extending from Friday night through Sunday.” Most of the time, people look to these days as their time for rest and recreation especially after a week of arduous work and labor. I myself used to look forward to weekends as they used to be my time for friends, family, and loved ones. Lately though, I seem to have been missing the point of having weekends at all.
Work has been piling up so much that I have to sacrifice even my Saturdays and Sundays just to finish off the tasks given to me. I rarely get to go out, and if I do I usually get home pretty late causing me to be so tired the next day that I become unable to do even more work. Every time someone asks me to go out these days, my common retort would be, “I’m busy. I have so many things to do.” It’s been such a generic reply that I’m thinking I should make a template out of it. LOL.
I miss my friends… But these days, I’ll just have to be patient and wait for the right opportunity to meet them. For now, I’ll have to finish the busy month of March and deal with the work that needs to be done.
Still, I can’t help but ask… “Where have my weekends gone?”
