Should I do a TGIF post like I used to on this blog?

I feel like Fridays are not as significant to me now. Back “then”, I was working a M-F 9-5 job so Fridays meant freedom. Freedom of a weekend to do whatever I want. But now, in grad school, Fridays have lost that meaning. Fridays are often met with stress of will I have to come in this weekend or the guilt of no I’m not going to come in this weekend. And if I don’t go in that doesn’t even mean I’m not working. And then of course, now there is the pandemic which means Fridays really don’t mean anything at all.

That aside, my TGIF posts were about sharing interesting reads. So I will stick with the concept but am in need for a new title, suggestions welcome!
