Friday is a day full of promises. The promise of a great weekend to come, the promise of spending spare time with the loved ones or just the promise of sitting and doing nothing. I’ve never really liked making plans for the weekend. Let’s say I prefer to improvise. However, improvising or not, I always [...]
