I love Fridays.
I am going to tell you why, and if you work (closely) with me you should already know what I am going to say...
Jeans! Jeans! JEANS!
I am most comfortable in jeans. I think that this is a lot because of my weight and deflated body after having 2 kids in under 2 years and that I don't own any dress pants that fit correctly right now (but I am in between sizes). I also wear a lot of hooded sweatshirts and they hide a lot! But even on a warm day, in a flowy tank and cardigan at work, if it is paired with jeans...the world is a better place.
It's sad to say, but I think I teach better in jeans.
I am very self-conscious the other 4 days of the week, while in dress pants and a nice top - I just don't feel comfortable - and on Friday, or any jeans day, I am more relaxed...and I don't have to try on a million outfits because every color top goes perfectly with my jeans. Those jeans that make me look skinnier - and a sweatshirt that covers it all - make me so much happier!
And when you're happier you seem to work better....more efficiently....and it can often rub off on those you work with - coworkers and students alike.
So I am going to have a GREAT day because I will be in jeans!
...and since it's freezing in my room I'll be warm in my sweatshirt! No need for a scarf and jacket all day! That makes me even happier. :)
