A Friday in the office is tough for even the chirpiest of workers. 

You wish you hadn't sold your soul to the man and actually did become a professional St. Bridget's cross maker, spending your time between Burning Man and Connemara.

One can but dream, but while you're daydreaming today, remember that you're not alone. We're all in this dimly-lit room together...

1. Exhaustion

Oh my God almighty I'm so bloody TIRE–, wait, it's Friday!

2. Euphoria

Only 8-10 hours until total, unadulterated freedom!

3. Realisation

Ugh, a full day of bleakness, surrounded by fellow chumps.

4. Determination

I CAN deal with this. HAND ME MY DEALING SHIRT.

5. Doubt

Arriving into work to everyone sneezing, nursing hangovers and generally being foul.

"... CAN I do this?"

6. Depression

And we have arrived at the first slump of the day: 11am.

7. Giddiness

Pints are near! I can feel them! They're calling me!

8. Nervous

Fuck, I've a lot of work to do. Will I get it in on time? Will I have to stay late? Will the pub wait?

9. Brief descent into madness

ONCE YOU REPLY TO ONE EMAIL, FOUR MORE COME IN. WHO ARE THESE IGNORAMUSES? 

WHAT DO THEY THINK I AM? 

A SUPER BROKER?!

10. Followed by a quick stop off at Crazy Town

You know they've already finished their work day in Australia. Isn't that funny? 

Haha. 

Hahahahaha.

11. Focus

Must remove myself from this situation. Gotta get this shit DONE.

12. Acceptance

You have graciously accepted defeat.

Someone stick a fork in you, you're done.

13. Second wind

Screw the haters, I am invincible! Hand me MORE work!

(please no)

14. Skepticism

Do you really need that drink? Maybe you should take the evening off, and finish up this work tomorrow after you've gotten a good night's sleep and perhaps even a juice cleanse?

15. Lol

Fuck that.

16. Eagerness

I can see the light of day! She's calling me!

17. Triumph

FREEDOM! Let us burn our work shoes and slash the tyres of our vehicles!

Or just eat three burgers and gently soak up our small victory like a sponge. Whatever.
