It's all downhill from here

    Well... it's the middle of the week, and the worst is done(Monday).

    So... now, if you can tough through today there is only 2 more days before the weekend. Life is not so bad after all.

    Have you ever had the feeling that you live for the weekend... how did life become this way? You must spend 5 days out of 7 doing something for someone else so that you can spend only 2 days doing what you want to do?

    I dont know about you, but I live for the weekend, those 2 days are crucial in being able to cope with the 5 days of bullshit every week.

    Anywho... a toast to being half way there.

    Cheers!

    I know EXACTLY what you're saying. All week I just do what I have to do to just get through the week and the only thing I look forward to is the weekend.... [​IMG]

    Do you perhaps mean "It's all uphill from here?

    I need those 5 days to recover, regroup and get some energy for the weekend. My work week makes my weekend even better.

    But to answer your question: Yes, I live for the weekends.

    I'm pretty sure I meen downhill...

    It's like monday is the beginning of a hill, wednesday is the climax, and friday is the bottom of the other side.

    Once you've trekked up the hill(Monday, tuesday and wednesday till noon) you get to stroll down the rest of the way with the momentum you've picked up and the gravity of the weekend pulling you towards it.

    If you think it's uphill, give me your examples and maybe you will enlighten me.

    Well, the expression "sownhill from here" usually refers to an unpleasant experience, something negative. By contrast "it's all uphill from here" means things are looking up, getting better, about to be easier.

    In this particular case study, it seemed more fitting to myslef that after Wednesday things would be easier because you've gotten over the hump.

    The Downhill analogy also works with my work ethic, you know I give my 100% every week,

    5% on Monday
    20% on Tuesday
    40% on Wednesday <--- Climax of the week
    25% on Thursday
    10% on Friday
    ----------------
    100% Total


    And now I must give my 40%... ung...

    you no makey no sensey.

    since when was "an uphill battle" an easy thing?
    nothing's easier about going uphill, except for possibly braking in a vehicle with shody brakes.

    LOL

    Ming is too busy at work today to put in the thought and effort that Tribe requires.

    the uphill and downhill metaphors are interchangable, depending on the context of use.
     
  14. mingster

    mingster TRIBE Member

    Yes, I think the use of uphill and downhill are interchangeable. However, I'm not sure that there is interest in the particular subject matter at hand...

    Shall we discuss? Or does it suffice to say that anyday that isn't a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, sucks.

    and since then i've been working to change it...

    here's an idea:

    get a job you really enjoy.

    and/or

    don't party so hard on the weekends. Really it could be you that is creating this up and down feeling your experiencing through the week. If your weekends are all out balls to the wall 52 weeks of the year then of course the weekdays are gonna suck some assholio.

    Peace & love. D

    you should get something out of each and every day of your life. Why only go out on Friday, Sat and Sunday? I say go out whenever you feel the need to and when you won't be stressed out trying to find a cheap parking spot that is close to the place of entertainment hmm lets say Wed or Thursday does it for me.

    its really hard to justify going out on the weekdays when you know that you are going to have to get up early the next morning and function as a contributing member of society.

    and i don't mean that going out = getting drunk, i just mean that most nightlife doesn't get kickin' til the time that i should really be settling down to sleep.

    and i disagree about the uphill/downhill thing. the way i see it: if something is "downhill from here" it is deteriorating into something less pleasant than its current state.
    if something is "uphill" it is going to be alot of hard work.
    neither are positive things. so they are not interchangable.

    with that said, even i can admit that this dead horse has endured enough abuse.

    The only reason it's dead is because it had to drag everyone up and down all those fucking hills.

    BTW: If you set things up just right, and phone in sick every Monday, you can coast-- no hills, no up, no down, no fucking gravity, yeah, man, it's like the time I smoked banana peels.

    You wonder why you find yourself banned from forums Soju. If you dug up 6 month old threads on the forum I moderate I'd ban your ass so fast you wouldn't know what hit you.
