The pressure of a weekend

Sunday’s come and almost gone and I’ve done zilch to make the weekend sound cool to anybody who’s into that kind of stuff.

Last night, there was the launch of a lounge at a five-star, where we didn’t go. From where everyone was supposed to descend on a pub that’s just re-opened, where we didn’t go either. There was a party at a club, where we were not invited! We did go out for dinner, etc with Sis & Co. (includes three sisters, hubbies and their bachchas) to a staid/safe place, but that’s not the sort of thing we classify as cool these days, I believe.I’ve just slept the whole of today, been wasted totally.Β And with Sunday drawing to a close now, I can feel the pressure building Β – to have fun.

I don’t have pics on my phone to upload on FB as proof of how much fun I had – that’s in fashion these days, right? Or put snazzy messages on BBM at 4 in the morning to tell the world how we were partying into the wee hours last night and came back home sloshed. Because we didn’t. We just came home a little past midnight, slept, woke up, ate and slept some more. And then woke up, and at again and now we don’t even have a plan for the night. And we’re blaming it all on the heat. Can you imagine how stressed I’m feeling right now? No movie tickets in hand, no dinner reservations, not even new clothes to wear and feel good in! Gosh, I feel like I just took VRS from my social life!

But I guess I graduated from trying to do the cool things a while back. And now weekends are about a little bit of shopping, a dinner with friends/family, a movie and that’s about it. It almost sounds boring, compared to what I used to be upto not so long ago. But I’m enjoying where I am. And haven’t cared much for appearances. I’m not starting now!

So, what was your weekend like? Lazy or super hectic?

  1. really, pressures of having a social life!!

    we pretty much did nothing. slept, eat and watched lot of roadies!

  2. as usual, I love lazy weekends.. I just like to spend Sundays at home.. This weekend I did not step out of the house, except for my guitar class and then on sunday for half an hour to buy some veggies.. thats it… Whole two days were spent at home, just doing the routine stuff of cleaning, washing, lazying around, sleeping, watching inane TV at times, couple of movies.. thats about it… and I love such weekends…
    I am sure I sound like a super duper boring woman to you… πŸ˜€

    • Haha! No, I’m jealous of people who’re content just relaxing. I don’t really know how to do that. I get restless.

  3. LOL
    “I don’t have pics on my phone to upload on FB as proof of how much fun I had – that’s in fashion these days, right?

I was never into ‘cool’ stuff – weekends always meant lazing around at home, spending time with family and close friends, visiting a garden to get some zen to cope up with the pressures of work life, maybe a visit to a bookstore, listening to music, lots of reading and maybe eating out. Sometimes, I would feel the pressure that you speak of, to have ‘fun’ and do the ‘cool’ stuff. I never felt comfortable with partying and discs and the works, so stuck to what I felt happy with. We still do the same after marriage – and hey, it’s relaxing as well as fun for us. πŸ™‚

    Had a super lazy weekend this weekend, but it got interesting when we went out for dinner and meeting with some family. πŸ™‚

    Gosh, I sound like an old bat, no? πŸ˜›

  4. That sounds like such a lovely chilled out weekend. Some weekends are super hectic where we’r running from one thing to another to meet our commitments and then there are weekends, where we only sleep and eat all day πŸ™‚

  5. I spent the whole weekend sleeping because of a cold and because I had a CRAZY weekend at work!!

    Today morning when my totally single group of colleagues asked me hw my weekend was, I was all like “I slept through”. The way they looked at me, one would have thought I said, “I made a girl-on-girl porn movie on saturday”!

    Arrghhh.. Now, I am determined to do something cool over the next week lest I be ostracized at work!

  6. see thats the kind of thing i was mentioning in my post today, its all this pressure to look cool. what happened to good old fashioned chilling with family.
