I take every Friday off. We put so much into each weekday, weeknight, and the majority of our weekends, that I always give myself Friday night. Whether it’s spent celebrating a friend’s birthday, playing MarioKart with my roommate, or enjoying a glass of wine (or two) while marathoning The Office, I’ve found that I need to give myself this day to maintain my motivational drive, recuperate from the week, and just breathe. It gives me something to look forward to when a week seems never-ending. This was a piece of advice that my wonderful mentor gave me before I started school, and I think it has definitely contributed to my success and maintained sanity.
