At this point, if you don’t know what the Sunday Scaries are, you’re a blessed soul with the spirit of a lion. The anxiety that typically sets in on late Sunday afternoon (or night) before the return to work, school, or the office is something that plagues more than half of the millennial workforce. And it’s not going away anytime soon, as evidenced by a drawing done by an 11-year-old girl who’s mother posted her artwork to Reddit.
The mother said, “11 yr old daughter drew this out of the blue. Looks like she’s got the future work-week figured out,” and she couldn’t be more right.
There it is – the perfect encapsulation of an anxiety-ridden Sunday. From the overflow you feel on Monday morning when
your inbox the world is crumbling down on you to the perfect beads of cold sweat dripping down Sunday night’s face, this girl just gets it.
But I will say this to the little girl – batten down the hatches because it only gets harder from there. .
