I dont know if it was the same for you, but for me when I was a JW meeting days seemed to have a black cloud hanging over them. On Thursdays I knew I would be going to the meeting that evening. That i would be getting into my meeting clothes at 6:30pm, leaving the house at 6:55pm and be sat in the Kingdom hall from 7:15pm-9pm, then milling around for about half an hour before finally getting home for 10pm. Evening gone. Wasted. Nothing new or excited was learned that evening and it was totally boring.
And that was just Thursday!
Sunday was the same deal, except it was in the morning so you didn't get a lie-in. Plus you may have had an hour ministry after the meeting so you wouldn't get home until about 3pm. Morning and most of your afternoon gone, wasted.
Now, I only just realized that it's Thursday. The day doesn't invoke a bad feeling inside me. One of dread.
And remember when we used to have the book study too? (in my case, it was on Tuesdays). How did we function?! 4 days out of our 7 being hijacked by theocratic stuff when we should have been enjoying our lives.
