What I love about Fridays

"It's Friday, Friday gonna get down on Friday." -- Rebecca Black
"Last Friday night, yeah I think we broke the law." -- Katy Perry
"Everybody's working for the weekend." -- Loverboy

I'm trying to incorporate a new line of thinking that I shouldn't look forward to Friday solely based on the fact that it marks the end of the work week. It's a mantra Gary Vee has adopted. But when you get up at 1:25 a.m., it's hard not to look forward to two days of sleeping in each week. That's just one of the reasons I like Friday though. There are a few others that top my list.

Craft Beer Friday
My buddy Tom Harness started Craft Beer Friday at his company Harness Digital Marketing a few years ago. Since he's moved his office to downtown Carterville, I've headed over nearly every week for some brew and conversation. It also gives us a chance to record an episode of The Craftbeericans from time to time. 

Good times at The Annex (RIP)
Many years ago the News 3 This Morning crew started going out for breakfast on Fridays. The Breakfast Club leaves work after the last GMA cut in is over.It's a tradition that has stood the test of time starting with Subway and evolving to countless other restaurants in the Marion-Herrin-Carterville-Carbondale area. 

Napping. If there's one day of the week I'm certain to get a nap it's on Friday. I usually try to do that in case we go out that night or have a football game, band performance or cheer event to attend.

Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard is my favorite podcast. A new show drops each Friday. I look forward to 11 a.m. each week and plan my longer runs for Fridays just because of that show. 

Ultimate Warrior socks

Funky Socks Friday is a new gimmick I have on my Facebook page. A friend of mine, Jason Shadowen, started the movement. It's kinda like Nerd Shirt Thursday, but with socks. However, I'm running low and need to add to my supply.

What's your Friday tradition? Post here. Have a great weekend.
