Psychologists have been studying human behaviour for centuries now; and to freak us all they have been naming various traits as phobias and manias. They also say that if you have studied psychology, it is difficult to cure you of any such disorder, since you already know the tricks of the trade. (Well, I am not an authority on this so please don't take my word for it)
I have been personally been quite intrigued by psychology. (Although, nowhere in my not so illustrious academic background will you find any trace of even touching on the subject.) My daily dose of the so called human behaviour comes from lifestyle magazines and newspaper supplements who know that people like to read what could be possibly wrong with them in the brain area.
For a long time, I would proudly announce that I was suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. (I know! I belong to a certain category that people would call "freak of nature"). I've lately also started keeping my workspace clean and arranging documents on my desk in decreasing thickness. (Alright, that's not wierd! Fine!)
But the one thing I really, truly suffer from is Friday nite fever. I don't know whether this is properly documented in any psycho journal, but it is a matter of extensive study. (I hope someone's listening).
This is a phenomenon mostly seen among young urban population. After five day's of greulling work (whom are we kidding actually) schedule, patients like me look forward to unwind on Friday night. What happens if god forbid, there is no plan this Friday? Anxiety, palpitation and restlessness follow. As a side effect, another condition called 'loneliness' may also creep in. Cell phone activity increases manifold. Patients suddenly feel 'friendless' and also experience another serious condition called 'miserable'.
As someone who has gone through this condition many times, I have also researched on some possible cures for this disorder.
1. Always have stand-by friends. These are generally losers who do party on Friday nights but are open to hang out if given an opportunity. It would also help if you are rich.
2. Get a girlfriend. Not an easy job, if you are ugly and lack the general charm for attraction. In case you are ugly and curt, then you got to be rich
3. Have an attractive bar at home. If nothing else works there is booze back home.
4. Go out alone anyways and hope to make friends on the way.
If none of the above works, then you got to go and visit your friendly neighbourhood shrink. If you have the right money, maybe he'll come out partying with you....
