I consider that Saturdays are my favourite days because I usually do lots of productive activities and hang out with friends and family all day long. On Saturdays I go to French classes from 8 to 11:40 in the morning, I return home to grab a bite and afterwards, I go to my English class that lasts 5 hours. When the class is over, I tend to eat some dinner, go to the cinema, play videogames, chat with my friends or mingle with them. It is actually hard to talk about your favorite day and all the stuff you do on it. Mmm...What else? Oh! A fun and quite disturbing fact about me on Saturdays is that every time I get in my English Academy, my stomach starts to churn. At first I didn't know why but, with time, I realized that it was a happening that took place right there that made me feel ill. A misunderstanding I had with a teacher....Anyways. I overwrote, haha.

I really adore Mondays. I know, I know, Mondays are supposed to be boring and reluctant, as it is usually the end of a long-awaited weekend. But in my opinion, Monday is a day filled with curiosity and wonder. It's kinda peaceful returning to the same old schedule, with moms screaming to get me out of my bed, rushing to meet the buddies who seems to have grown old in the two-day gap, and of course, listening to the age-old lectures of the teachers. But most importantly, Monday usually acts as a second chance for our lives. It provides us with a clear definition of the mistakes we did the past week, and gives us a new chance to turn into a new leaf. And last but not the least, it signifies that we've gone through a whole week without any issues, and we still have time to climb up the ladder of success. So Mondays, here I come! PS: It's good be back again ;))
