About the Post

Author Information

I’m a funny, free-thinking girl who loves philosophy, disco dancing to 70′s music, going on spontaneous adventures, and living life to the fullest. I love dogs and have an inexplicable affection for elephants. I know who I am and I know what I want out of life.

Ode to Monday


At 6 a.m. it begins with an incessant beep-beep-beep

I fumble clumsily for the alarm, eyes still closed because I didn’t get enough sleep

I could have gone to bed early; I always say that I will

But as the final moments of my weekend slip away, I desperately cling to the thrill

How is it already Monday? I whine, as I roll out of bed

Resting my face in my palms as I think about the week that lies ahead

Put on my slippers and begrudgingly trudge down the hall

Better make a whole pot of coffee today…it is Monday, after all.

I will lose my keys, spill my coffee and have to make a run for the bus

I will then be forced to take the last seat next to an Evangelist who will pray for me when I cuss

I will make it to work just a second too late

And will consequently be given assignments that I’ll hate

I’ll avoid having to make small talk at all cost

I lack the patience to hear about ballet recitals, and neck-in-neck games that were lost

I’ll navigate past the water cooler and sneak by the break room

And stealthily slip unnoticed into my cubicle/tomb

It’s then that I’ll realize I forgot my phone

Oh, the life of an office drone.

    Those evangelists can take their unwanted f*****g prayers elsewhere.
