How often do you criticize your day/week/etc? Do you look at your days or weeks compared to other days/weeks or do you just go with the flow understanding what each day has it's ups and down. This can go further as well, from hours up to decades. Just any form of comparing past time with present time or rating it.

Not all that much with weeks, but when it comes to bad days versus good days, the contrast is always extremely bold. If I have a 'bad day' it usually consists of getting injured on more than one account (during the same day) or something happening between myself and another individual or object (i.e. an argument or the displacement of something) Good days are normally focused around something positive happening to me.

My days are pretty much the same. Some days will start out really bad and turn out okay and the opposite holds true just as often. It's rare that I have a day where absolutely everything goes wrong to the point where I curse its existence for days/weeks/years to come.

My weeks have generally been pretty bad or "meh" lately though. :/ Lack of sleep plus being too busy playing catch up from when I was sick for three weeks has taken a toll and my lack of free time has started to get to me. Nothing from the last while stands out as "good" and the day that does started out horribly. But on the whole, every day sort of feels like every other day so I just don't even compare them. Nothing to really compare them to, after all.

Im pretty miserable at home during the week because i only think about how much i hate school and at school im miserable because i hate school. The only time i get a break is the later half of the day on friday and then saturday. And thats high school for me. Hm i think i misread the thread. I look at it as a bad day but pretty much every day is bad so i dont really look back on my day at all.
I like Sandshrews. A lot. I am Sandshrews number 1 fan. And don't you deny it.

I've had a nice rebound lately, and that's why I haven't been on as much. It feels great to finally be able to get stuff done after all the misery I put myself into.

Have I been pessimistic about my life before? Yes. I'm working on changing that. It needs to happen if I want to survive. Unfortunately, I really can't change my undying pessimism about society... but that's for another topic. xD
This'll do for now.

Most days/weeks are reletively the same for me but once in a while I will have a bad week because some bad things happen I don't like, it's very rare though.

I don't compare consciously, but I can tell when a day went particularly badly or particularly well. I'll notice the difference from a normal day, but I don't consciously think to do it. It's the same with weeks - on Thursday or Friday I don't think "how was my week?", but every once in a while I notice that I had 4 or 5 bad days and note it as a bad week, or the opposite.

I always criticize the week I've been through. Whether awesome, crappy, sucky, or just plain uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. I look back at the week and rethink of all that happened, and look forward to the next week. There would be one week where at the end I'll be burned out from schoolwork and social, and one week where I'm all happy and find everything under control.

I only do it on a day-to-day basis. Everything else flies by too fast for me to even notice if it overall was good or bad. On my bad days, I always know tomorrow will be better, so I just wish the day would end already so I could move on. A new day is a fresh slate.

Mondays and Saturdays always suck at work though. No exception. :p

I rarely have bad days and that's usually only when my time of the month with my bipolar meds comes and I'm just miserable for no reason. But I try to focus on only the positive things in my life so I very rarely look back on things in a negative light.

Oh man this reminded me of one crappy week I had a while back.

Monday: Left the headlights on so drained my car battery and had to call breakdown cover.
Tuesday: Can't remember, think it was relatively OK though.
Wednesday: Made an IT blunder but thankfully it was on a test system.
Thursday: Can't remember but I'm pretty sure something happened to put a damper on my mood.
Friday: Did a hill start but had my gear in reverse so nearly hit the car behind me >__>

Anyway, all things considered these were minor things but they all end up piling up and I was like this is the crappy week for me then. But I rarely have them so it's all good.

I don't really like comparing things, you know? But when I do, like Minzy said, the contrast is really bold. I rarely have bad days, tho. I have great days most of the time.

I always criticize my week. A lot of the time I end of saying its been a good week, but there are weeks, like this one, where I just realize how horrible it was.

Just tonight I overheard my mother on the phone telling my uncle, "it's been such a crap year" and I thought " has?"

It seems pretty much just like any other year to me. I don't see how it's any different on a 1-10 scale than last year or the year before, but she has a rather pessimistic outlook on things in general anyway.

As for me, I only do this on a day-to-day basis. There is a lot of sameness in my life, so generally when I break out of that I class it as a 'good day', but something really terrible would have to happen for me to make the classification of a 'bad day'. Most of it is just the grey in between.

I criticize most days/weeks. I'm almost always tired, which leads to me being lazy which leads to me being MORE tired which leads to school being even more terrible than it already is. :(

But the weekends are nice!

I criticize every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year. Why? Because I can that's why.
"Well what else is there to talk about, apart from the weather, the assassination attempt of the day being sponsored by El Dente's, and of course the latest political sex scandal involving foreign tranny midgets and elderly men in a 3000 dollar hot tub in a Beverly Hills suite."

I've had an awwwwful week. Not gonna lie, and I know it's not getting better any time soon. But you know what? I know that once I get through it (and I hope that I get through it positively) I'll be stronger for it. I'll know that not many weeks could be worse, yet I hope that after this one it will all work out. All I can do is be positive and keep strong.

I seldomly criticize my week, I tend to take things day to day, but this has been "one of those weeks" times a million. But let me say that I hope that keeping positive, strong and working towards making things better will all work out in the end.

Ah not often. However, sometimes there just so happens to be this one day that I curse for like, ever there on after x__x
Like this one day, I was planning on buying a 3DS, but I didn't have a car so I needed someone to pick me up. I woke up real early and my aunt picked me up and dropped me at Walmart. Which is when I found out that my bank screwed up and my deposit still hadn't been processed, so I ended up not buying a thing and walking back home in the sun for a 20 minute walk :/

I got home and I had a lot of homework to do. Finished that, went to college, took a test which I almost failed. When I got back home I felt really sick, went to the bathroom for a shower, and there was not hot water. Well, there was, but the pipe was screwed. I tried to fix it and ended up spraying myself with water. Which is when I opened my fridge for dinner/lunch and realized I had no food for some reason and forgot to get any from Wallmart. And the closest restaurant/store is a 20 minute walk. I walked to Walmart which was closed (And it's like NEVER closed). This particular Walmart isn't 24/7, but it usually closes at 3AM :/ So I had to walk even more only to get to a crappy restaurant where I ate food I will never forget O.o

Walked back home, tired and sick, and couldn't sleep for like 3 hours turning around in bed with a stomach ache and headache. I will never, EVER, forget that day. My God!

This was actually like a week ago x_x
but my taste in music is your face

I normally do this every day! XD

I will normally have good weekends, but due to work, weekdays can be a little random on the 'decent' scale.

I usually somewhat evaluate how my day went when I'm in bed thinking about so many random deep things that I never think about anywhere else. XD In general I'm not one to uphold a constant pessimistic view on my day, but I'll complain here or there. Sometimes it's just not my day, while sometimes it's one of the best days I've had. I tend to forget what I do anyway after a week or so, unless something really bad or something really good has happened to me.

So much for my optimism... I've had a few brutal days here, and I'm just sick of it. I thought I was going to die in my sleep last night, thankfully I didn't.

I just hate this misery, and I want to get out of it forever. I want to try to always have a good week, like the old times... when I was a kid, and before the world started destroying itself. Life is so messed up these days... where's a private island when you need one?
