I usually take it easy on Fridays but ever so often I'll introduce new concepts to my students so that they at least have some frame of reference for when we really get into things on Monday. However, now that state-wide testing is over and there's 4 weeks of school left, I feel myself totally slacking. My students would never know that I am because I'm still enthusiastic when they're in the classroom.

Fridays are actually my busiest day - I usually end up working later on Fridays than I do the rest of the week! :-(

Yup . . .Unless our office is really busy which is like 2 times in every month.

Nope; if things are busy in the clinics and at the hospital, Fridays are just as busy or even busier than any other day of the week.

After my day yesterday I am in slacker mode for sure.

This Friday, yes -- just because this past month has been incredibly insane working 60 hour weeks etc. I CAN'T wait for this work day to be over.

I actually work harder on Fridays because I don't want to have any work to take home with me over the weekend.

Nope, Fridays are usually pretty stressful actually. That's when I go through my lists and try to finish all the things I didn't have time to do during the rest of the week, which means spending my day trying to get people on the phone and bugging them all day long to get answers to my questions. :oy: I do always save the last 45mins of my day to go through my mailbox and delete old emails, make a list of what I'll have to do on Monday morning, prepare what I'll bring to the Monday staff meeting, and clean my desk. Prepares me for the weekend and avoids waking up on Sat night thinking "I have to call this person and this one too".

Where the option for "I really try hard not to be, but can't help it?" Ha. In general, my whole office all know its Friday if you know what I mean,lol.

My workday is until 1pm on Fridays (the whole company shuts down then) so yes, everyone definitely slacks! :)

It depends, today I'm being a Friday slacker but next week is my busiest day of the month so no slacking then :-(

more so than other days (it's the tone of the office that really affects it) but days like today, i am too busy and too tight of a deadline to slack...but if i dont have pressing issues, yes i'm a friday slacker
