After-weekend funk

I spent the morning laying around with my friends watching football. At around 5:30pm, three friends and I decided to go outside and play a little basketball. While shooting, we all realized that we were inexplicably depressed.

We'd all had a great weekend. Thursday night we had a great party, Friday we'd gone to a great cocktail, and Saturday our football team annihilated a ranked UCONN and moved into the AP top 25 for the first time since 2001.

What we couldn't figure out was why we were all feeling so down. One friend voiced it well by saying,

"I just feel like sitting in a corner and staring at a wall."

After discussing our condition for a while, we diagnosed it as an after-weekend funk.

Even with little work due this week, because there was nothing to look forward to until Tuesday night, we'd caught it. Then, in a moment of clarity, the med-school applicant of the bunch thought of the cure...

...thank god for Karaoke night at He's Not.
