There’s already all the annoying things about salary week, but new weeks can be another struggle and we don’t talk about it enough.

Let’s see which one you can relate with the most.

1. Motivational quotes

Everybody is suddenly so ‘motivated’ for the new week. Set awon aspire to perspire. That’s when you’ll get broadcast wishes on WhatsApp no one bothers reading. Wait until someone splashes dirty water on the shirt you took three hours to iron.

2. Monday blues

There should be a bill to place a ban on it because what is this day of the week, but stress?

3. Routines

It’s the activities you did the previous week, that you still have to repeat this week. They may just wear sexier clothes.

4. To-dos

You actually have to go out there and do the things that can help you make money to shake your ass on a yacht. Welcome to adulting.

5. Thursday tears

You’re probably wondering why it’s on this list. Well, Thursday is the sibling of Friday no one really likes. Can you move? It’s Friday we want.
