בעזרת השם יתברך ליל שישי פ' ויחי, אור לי"ג טבת, שנת תשע"ט
Leil shishi (thursday night) is the not the time to hang out with friends, go home, and help your wife prepare for shabbos.
Imagine you would have guest coming, you would certainly clean and prepare your house with an excitement and simcha, likewise, one should prepare מכל טוב וטוב, all kinds of delicacies in honor of the holy shabbos. Especially now, during the short winter Fridays be a חכם עיניו בראשו, and start preparing on Thursday in order for you to have an easier erev shabbos.
While hustling for shabbos sing to yourself "lekuvid shabbos!" and " shabbos is coming!", it states in mishna berurah that while buying for shabbos one should say 'lekuvid shabbos'; the more one expresses his excitement and anticipation for the shabbos, the more kedushah descends to the world.
Remember what the holy R' Nosson would say "I'd rather always be from the נרדפים-the mistreated"; be careful never to hurt another Jew, and definitely not your own wife.
I'll have to elaborate more on this tomorrow, now I have to run to my talmidim which are waiting for some chizuk. Bochurim have nothing and nobody in the world, therefore I need to show them that they are not alone, they have Hashem.
