5 THINGS TO DO ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON (more later)

After reading a post on WordPress by Mr. Lee Iwan entitled “10 Things to do on a Friday afternoon,” I felt inspired and compelled to write this little post.  Mr. Iwan’s post depressed me.  On a Friday afternoon, all I want to do is get home so I can start my two days of freedom from work, worry, and stress.  (That’s the initial plan anyway.)  Mr. Iwan suggests that a Friday afternoon should be spent cleaning up your comptuer, organizing your desk at work, making lists for the following week of work, helping out co-workers.  I suppose all of this might be helpful and reasonable, but, let’s face it, it sucks.  TGIF was not made describing acts like cleaning up your desk and getting rid of extraneous files on your computer.  TGIF is a celebration of the fact that for two days I don’t have to be a slave to the job that’s paying my bills. (and of course this does not apply to those who work fulltime jobs (maybe two at time), seven days a week, because our stupid country can’t get it’s head out of it’s ass and raise the minimum wage.  I fully submit to the fact that this post applies to a certain class-level, and I am excluding other issues involving class–my bad.) Now don’t get me wrong–I love my job (so far), but I like my free time as well.  So instead of spending the beginning, middle, and end of my weekend worrying about the next week at work, I am presenting my own version of “10 Things To DO” that is more of a celebration of being able to spend two whole days doing whatever I want (that is within my budget of course).

 Also, as a another disclosure, all of these things are things I like to do, and may not be appealing to anyone else but me.

1) Go Thrifting.  Thrifts stores are perfect for college/postgrads in that you can find relatively new things for your apartment/closet for cheap prices.  Thrift stores are myriad in most areas.  I find that most Good Will stores have a good stock of items.  I’ve found designer clothes with tags still on, furniture for my house, books I’ve wanted to read at very, very, very cheap prices. 

2) Treat yourself to a nice meal.  Now, I don’t mean go out and spend all your money on a fancy dinner.  I have found that all week, I don’t get to have a meal that I get to sit down and enjoy.  While I am working, I am always eating stuff I have in my purse, or running into places and grabbing something I can scarf down quickly.  Then, when I get home in the evenings, I usually cook or throw something together.  However, on Saturdays, I see it as a chance to go to my favorite place to eat, order my favorite thing to eat (there or to go) and sit down and enjoy the fact that I didn’t have to cook it. 

3) Be a Couch Potato. For some reason, most people have the mindset that they have to “do stuff” on the weekends.  The weekend should be full of all these fun activities.  I think it is perfectly okay to take a Saturday and do absolutely nothing with it.  For instance, instead of running around all Saturday, doing this and that, just get some comfy blankets and snuggle up on your couch in front of the TV or your DVD player.   Saturday is the day which most cable channels play movies all day, so just veg out in front of the TV and watch movies all day.  If you need food, you don’t have to go out.  Just order pizza, chinese, anything that can be brough to you, so you don’t have to move:).  If you feel guilty for being lazy, make someone else be lazy with you, and it will displace some of that guilt.

4) Actually give yourself as much time as you like to be active.  During the week, I find I am always squeezing in a walk, or a run, or some time at the gym.  I like to be active, but I find that the time is not always there.  So, on Saturday give yourself an hour, two hours, whatever you like to be active.  Take a long bike ride.  Take the dogs for a long walk.  Take your time at the gym.  When you know that you don’t have to be back any time soon, it makes the workout that much better.  Now, if it is extremely hot outside, as it has been recently in D-town, then I suggest taking another look at #3.  Nasty weather is the number one excuse for being lazy.

5) Make your rounds.  During the week, we may not get to see all the people we would actually like to see during the week.  Sometimes, after I come home from work all I want to do is sit, down and relax, not be social.  So, use the weekend to see all your friends/family.  They may even have better suggestions as to what to do on a Saturday afternoon.

  15. Amacisaac Said:

    Thanks for the affirmation to meander and do whatever needs to be done or caught up on, either productive or not.
    I just wrote ‘what to do on a saturday’ into google, before coming up with a slave chore list. My hubby would appreciate that not every day off needs to have a ‘to do list’ to ‘make the most of the day’…just see what happens.
    I should add though…having kids, this was suppose to be my sleep in day, and here I am wide awake planning the day at 8:22am. That’s a joy of having cute voices watching cartoons on a Sat :)

  21. Victoria Said:

    This was great! I recently got out of college for the summer and I have nothing to do. Jobs are scarce and I have applied everywhere. I kind of feel useless since I’m used to having a job during the day. But what does a girl do when all her friends are out of town for the weekend and she is stuck at home???

  22. jocelyn Said:

  23. Marcus Said:

  24. Candace Said:

    I’m not sure what is wrong with half of the people who left comments. “FUCK SOMEONE” or “GET FUCKED UP” with typological errors throughout, not to mention those who say that this post is “REATARTED!!!” Grow up, please. And learn some proper grammar while you’re at it. Thanks!

    As for your post, I think you offer some great suggestions! This was the first article that came up when I googled things to do on a Saturday, and you’ve given me quite a few ideas. As a college student, I don’t have a lot of money to throw around and I appreciate your money-conscious suggestions. Good article!

  25. tim Said:

    dumb people! even the sassy bitches are as follows, dumb, just a bit ignorant, and from the south.

  26. katie Said:

    i did not find what i needed

  27. Anonymous Said:

    no offense, but u dont sound very “inspired”.
    I didnt find what I needed, but Great Job!

  28. this one girl Said:

    okay, most of you are just being really big jerks.
    if you didnt like it, go and make your own god damn website!!
    dont sit here, wasting your time writing a bad comment,
    cuz its just a wast of time for everyone else who likes to read the comments left.
    i personally thought they were great suggestions and am glad this was on the top 10 things that popped up:)

    ps: all of you that said “fuck someone” or suggested drinking or playing drinking games, you really need to get a life.
    find some REAL hobbies that normal people would like to do.

    • mikelle11 Said:

      i fully agree

    • Chuck-Bob VanillaHammer Said:

      1) Stop sticking up for someone who you have no idea who it is. For all you know, this could be some rapist who made this website or some shit.
      2) I LOVE drinking, AND fucking, so YOU can get a life, because I think that the comments were more helpful then the actual website itself.
      3) I am a “normal” person, and i DO have “normal” hobbies. So, thanks for pointing that out. (:

    • a fan of you and the wife Said:

      I wasn’t amused with the vulgarity and lack of communication skills and idiocy until I got to your post. I was going down the whole, “what’s wrong with this country and why don’t these people know how to think for themselves and what happened to our educational system that they could think their comments were valid and relevant?” road, and then read your comment. I laugh every time I read it. Thanks!

  38. will Said:

    GAY

  39. shyshy Said:

    hey nice ty for gettin me to do so

  40. Sandi Said:

    Yes, their grammar and spelling are outrageous, but what I find even more obviously funny is the fact that they quite obviously had nothing better to do than google this site, read it, then spend further time posting their comments. Seems we’re all in the same boat once in a while…bored on a Saturday!! :)

  41. Diana Said:

    I Love all ideas…. Actually Im already hanging out w my hubby & daughter… and watching tv…. But I been up since 7am. Laundry it’s done. Gym it’s done & nice meal @ Friday’s it’s done ;0)

  42. Alanna Said:

    Thanks

  43. ian curtin Said:

    I like your idea’s, they don’t all suit me but it is refreshing to hear that sitting in watching a movie is not considered a waste of time as when I get the chance I do enjoy an old movie in the afternoons.

  44. poopants Said:

    on saturdays i like to eat poop and drink pee. it is surprisingly good
