20 Thoughts We All Have When The Sunday Scaries Hit

Sunday scaries are the anxiety a person has in anticipation for the week ahead.


Sunday scaries are a real thing. Millions of people suffer from it. It is the moment the weekend is ending, Sunday night, and you realize tomorrow is Monday, the start of a new week. Usually, it occurs when all of the assignments that needed to get started and the responsibilities you have for the week hit you. It can happen to anyone and everyone.

"How is it already Sunday night?"

The moment the realization of the week ahead hits you.

"I had so much I needed to work on this weekend ..." 

We all know this feeling.

"Well ..."

This truly says it all.

*checks calendar for weekly to-do list*: "I am not prepared."

Sadly, I am never prepared enough, especially for mid-terms week.

"How much can I truly get done in one night?"

It's a mad rush to see how many assignments, papers and studying can be completed in the remaining hours.

"Okay, one more episode before I get my life together."

I mean, you have to know what happens to be able to put all your focus on schoolwork.

"Did I eat dinner today?"

Because the best distraction is food. And, food is necessary before studying, working on assignments, or getting yourself ready for Monday. Sunday scaries require food.

"I need a breather." 

Can be thought before work has even begun or from just looking at your to-do list.

"It's not midnight yet."

As long as it's not midnight yet, everything feels safe and do-able ... possibly.

"Wait. How many pages do I need to read before class?"

A major downfall of not checking your syllabus ahead of time.

"Will my professor really give a quiz on a Monday?"

Yes. The answer is always yes.

"Eh, I still have time." 

Said after checking the time and seeing 9:00 p.m.

"Wow, I really didn't realize how long this is going to take me to complete."

Again. Always check your syllabus way before you plan to get your work done (even if not starting on it yet).

"I'm screwed." 

Yup, you're not wrong.

"Tomorrow is only Monday ..." 

You only need to focus on getting through Monday, so remember that and move forward. A helpful tactic of getting through the Sunday scaries.

"This assignment isn't due until later in the week, so I'll just do it then." 

Time to procrastinate more. There's still time.

"Omg! This is never ending." 

This might be thought before even attempting all that must be done.

"What did I do today?" 

Now you can't even remember what you spent the day doing instead of bracing for the Sunday scaries.

"It's fine." 

But is it really?


The most relatable one word said when the Sunday scaries hit. Usually repeated.

Nevertheless, the Sunday scaries will strike again in a week when you wait last minute to decide to organize your life and prepare for the week ahead. The Sunday scaries are not prearranged and occur at the moment Sunday night rolls around.
