Weekend Warrior (Urban Dictionary definitions)
“A person who holds a regular job during the week which restricts their ability to party/go on trips/partake in awesome activities, and thus plans epic weekend adventures to compensate. As much variation and quantity of awesomne-ness is packed into the weekends as physically possible, warranting the rest of the work week to recharge for the next weekend.”
“One who has obligations during the week, i.e. job or school etc., but he/she enjoys being belligerently drunk and high all weekend to the extent of passing or blacking out. These people are notorious for staying up until sunrise and wearing the same clothes into the next day. They only qualify if he/she parties on all nights of the weekend — no days off — This requires much will power and obedience to binge drinking and smoking.”
