8 Reasons Why Sunday Is, Undeniably, The Worst Day Of The Week

8 Reasons Why Sunday Is, Undeniably, The Worst Day Of The Week

If you like Sundays you are wrong.


Every Monday it is typical to see posts from people complaining about the fact that it is Monday. There are always posts of dread about the day, but there aren't many posts complaining about any other day. This is a huge issue for me, let's talk about the real issue at hand. People are ignoring the ~actual~ worst day of the week. Sunday. The day that is absolutely terrible, yet no one seems to acknowledge it. Here are 8 reasons Sundays are the absolute worst.

1.   You have to do laundry 

When I was in elementary school and high school Sunday was the day my family did laundry. I hated seeing the large pile of clothes that needed to be folded and put away. I always knew deep down that they wouldn't be put away, and I would have them strung about my room by the end of the week until the next Sunday rolled around, and they would be washed again.

2. There is nothing good on T.V. 

All day tv is either filled with a boring sporting event or paid programming that you don't really care about. Even if you watch "Keeping Up with The Kardashians" the new episodes don't start until 9 which means the whole 21 hours of Sunday before that are boring.

3. The day usually consists of homework 

Because the Friday and Saturday are unarguably the best two days of the week, nothing, if anything, productive is accomplished these two days. This means Sunday is strictly business, which consequently makes it suck.

4. You are given a day to reflect on your choices from the weekend

Sunday for me is just an extra day where you can't really do anything fun, but you also feel bad not doing anything. Typically, Sundays consist of thinking of the money spent or negative choices made over the weekend.

5. You think about everything you have to do that week 

When you are doing homework you typically take a break to look at the upcoming week, and when you realize all you have to do you are filled with a feeling of dread. I don't think this means that people are lazy when they dread all the tasks they have to accomplish, but I think it's super natural to see your week planned out and be stressed.

6. Time goes extra fast on Sunday 

Obviously, this isn't scientifically proven or anything, but I swear time on Sunday flies by. At one point it's 10 a.m., and then you blink and it's 7 p.m. and the laundry still isn't done.

7. Sunday feels so far from Friday 

Even though technically Saturday is the furthest day from Friday, since Saturday is fun too it doesn't count. Sunday just marks the beginning of a new week and that means responsibility.

8. You know tomorrow is Monday 

If you want to hate Monday, fine. At least acknowledge Sunday's proximity to Monday makes Sunday pretty bad too.

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.

It's 2019, And I Still Use A Weekly Planner

There is something about physically writing things down for that makes it easier to remember dates and deadlines.


Even with all the technology that is available to us nowadays, I still use an old-fashioned planner. I keep it in my backpack and you will see me pull it out if I need to add events for that week. Usually I will review the syllabus for my classes at the start of each semester and put down the important test dates or dates for other assignments. By doing this, I get a visual outline of what each will look like and what weeks will be extra heavy with school and other clubs that I am involved in on campus. Even though having this is a nice tool to help plan ahead and budget my time, it is by no means a failsafe. Sometimes I get this feeling that I forgot to do something that day but can't think of what it is. When this happens, I can refer back to my planner and look to see if I missed anything. The key point is to not forget to write things down, otherwise, all will be lost.

With today's technology, iPhones can do pretty much anything, I am aware that there is google calendar which can be synced up with a MacBook as well. This doesn't work for me because it takes too long to enter the events in my phone and I have not grown used to it. Another point is that I don't have a MacBook so it would only be accessible from my phone. I have found that it is just quicker to jot an event down by hand in my planner. For some people this might seem like a hassle having to pull out their planner when wanting to write down something they need to accomplish for that day. Since people spend a lot of time being on their laptops or phones it would be more convenient for them, being that they know how to work the app.

Either way, keeping a daily schedule or planner has many benefits. As mentioned before, it can help reduce the possibility of forgetting important due dates for exams or projects and other deadlines. Writing things down can also help reduce stress. There are times where there is too much on our plate to handle at once, we might have the feeling that everything needs to get done, which can be overwhelming. When I put things down on paper, it doesn't seem as bad and I can take care of what needs to be done at the moment and then work from there. I feel great after checking off a couple things from my to-do list because I can see that progress is being made.

Another use is to build in some time to relax or just time for yourself into your daily or weekly schedule, this can prevent the feeling of being burned out. Building in free time should have limits, especially for people who may spend too much time watching Netflix or Television. I would know because there are times where it can feel like hours go by and I haven't accomplished anything productive.

I highly recommend anyone who is in college to keep a planner, otherwise the stress can be too much to handle.
