I have not yet met a single person who doesn’t experience that special Friday feeling. It’s the end of the working week for many people and a time to anticipate the freedom and fun that the weekend offers.
I was born on a Friday and I love this day of the week. I even created a website called ‘Friday’ that celebrated this special day 😃
Friday is sometimes connected with superstitions and odd beliefs.
In Georgia (where I live), ‘Nine Fridays in a day’ describes people who change their minds too often.
‘Friday Girl’ was my nickname in childhood (used mostly by my parents). My mother’s explanation was: ‘You do everything upside down because you were born on Friday and you have Nine Fridays in a day!’
I still do things in my very own way, which perhaps can be described as ‘upside down’ but I still don’t know how Friday is connected with such type of behavior.
However I can understand the second part of the ‘Nine Fridays in a Day’ saying. I often change my mind. I did it a lot during my childhood. I had many hobbies and interests, which constantly competed for my attention – in the morning I wanted to be a painter and pirate, in the afternoon a pianist or writer, or maybe a biologist? A chef? A cosmonaut? Later in the afternoon I would decide that I would be a police chief or a cartoon creator. In the evening I was already dreaming of a film director’s career.
Well, I definitely didn’t become a pirate, though I did learn a lot of many interesting things by frequently changing my mind. In my heart, I know I am a Friday girl!
When I grew up and started work, my Friday expectations were never connected with weekends. I was a journalist and that profession doesn’t recognize formal working days or even holidays. However, Fridays were always somehow special. Perhaps it is because I am a ‘Friday Girl’ 😃
Last week, I started this blog and have already posted 13 articles, optimized my art website, made some digital paintings, took lots of photos, kissed my cat hundreds of times (which she considered to be bullying), tickled my dog a lot and did some other interesting things as well. It was a lovely week!
I feel a bit tired but happy – thank God it’s Friday!
I wish you an amazing and joyful weekend!
