The Importance of Weekends and Doing fun Things

For the first time in my entire school career, I have decided to take a day off during the week.

And you may be thinking: Elizabeth what are you talking about? You only go to school 5 days a week...

Well my friends, for the past 17 years of school (I think I did that math right) I have never taken a day off during the week.

I did homework Monday through Sunday.

This year, I vowed to give myself off ALL DAY on Saturday. That means no homework, no studying, no books, no work, no emails, no nothing, only FUN!

This pandemic taught me to take a break and enjoy life! School is just school. Grades are important but so is enjoying life. I missed out on the rest of my senior year of college due to Covid, with a laundry list of things I still wanted to do. So, I have vowed to myself that I will no longer wait to do fun things. This semester, I have made it a point to do something fun all-day on Saturday. 


This has not been easy though, because if you know me, not working one day a week is so hard. I am a workaholic; I can’t help it.

But if I plan out my work and pace myself, like I have been for the whole moth, it’s not bad at all, even as a first-year law student. 

Saturdays are my favorite day of the week now!

We always plan something fun and it gives me something to look forward to especially during my long weeks.

Not doing any work all day on Saturday is so therapeutic. I always feel so refreshed on Sundays after taking a day off. 

I should’ve done this a longggg time ago... then I wouldn’t feel so burnt out all the time.


I had such a fun Saturday at my niece’s communion.

Like most things this past spring, her communion was canceled and rescheduled to this past weekend. We had beautiful weather and beautiful company. 

I was so happy to spend my whole day Saturday celebrating her and my family. 


This post is your reminder to: take a break, relax, take time to enjoy your life, do fun things!

Even as a super busy 1L student, I am proof that you can take one day off a week.

You will come back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

You can thank me later ;)
