    What happened?!

    There's always so much to get done on your day off.

    But then it just flies by, and at the end of the day, you've accomplished nothing.

    Before you even realize it, it's already noon.

    Most of the time you haven't even made it out of bed by that point.

    It's way too much work to get dressed.

    Guess you're not going out today, huh?

    And you resist getting up to go to the bathroom until you absolutely have to.

    A futile battle with yourself.

    Then you start playing on your phone because you still can't build up the momentum to get out of bed.

    There goes another hour and a half.

    And after what feels like mere moments, it's suddenly evening.

    Wait! I haven't done anything yet!

    You remember all the things you wanted to do, but now you don't want to do them.

    What happened to all that willpower?

    On those rare occasions when you do get out of the house on a day off, it's exhausting.

    You get back home as quickly as you can and immediately go back to bed. Something about sleeping in and doing nothing really drains your endurance.

    You admire people who manage to get out and do something with their days off.

    But you don't know where they find the energy.

    Sometimes you can go an entire day without moving.

    Not even an inch.

    At the end of the day off, you freak out because you haven't done anything, so you get up and try to accomplish SOMETHING.

    Organize your desk a little, cook a simple meal, go for a walk... whatever. (Of course, none of it is the stuff you actually wanted to get done.)

    But it's enough to make you feel better, and after a long day of not doing anything, you go to bed, promising yourself that you'll get more done next weekend.

    Then just repeat the process over and over again.
