Things to do this week!

Monday is easily the worst day of the week. It drags us out of our pajamas and holiday mood only to thrust us, headfirst, into a day filled with errands, emails and well, jobs that help pay the bills. Also, it acts as a harbinger of bad news – that there are going to be four more such days to pull through before we can slip back into lethargy and old pajamas. It isn’t surprising then that it happens to be the most hated day of the week. But, what if you found something interesting to do each day, like attending a concert or a comical open mic evening? We’re sure the week wouldn’t seem so bleak and bleary then! So, to help take the edge of Monday, and to make the week ahead seem more enjoyable, here are a couple of fun events you can check out after work/college. Have a good week!
