the answer to the great stress problems of the world

I have decided that weekend get-aways are the answer. Too often I have blurred through the weekend because it finally gave me the chance to do the things I had to put off for not having enough time during the week, between work and school. A week's worth of tasks to get done in two days. Not likely, when I have a weekend job, or when I was performing.

Now, I'm on hiatus, and I've re-discovered the weekend. Everyone is entitled to at least ONE day in SEVEN where nothing is allowed to bother them. Thus, I have decided to run away to a new destination at least one weekend per month. The friday does not count as a weekend. It is the end of the workweek, and the bon-voyage. You arrive at the destination on friday, so that when you awaken on Saturday, you are present, listening to the native sounds of a chosen destination. All driving and check-in stress has already occurred. The day is yours, enjoy. Sunday, pray if you must for whatever debauchery ensued the day before, tie up loose ends, and head home.

Sunday is a symbolic heading home, for it carries the misty memories of a fantastic day, while the workday lies just beyond the sunset's impending dawn.

Enjoy the false pretense of the weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. May God be with you all.

My First One

For my first post, I thought I'd start off with something quirky and insightful. Then I scratched that, because this isn't really for you. It is, in a way, since on some small plane I expect someone in the world to see this, but it's more for me to let it out. And if you're reading, great. Welcome, voyeur!

I hold things in for far too long. Now, I don't have to anymore.
