Many people learn in grammar class that "I wish" goes with subjunctive mood, so the verb to be changes, like this:
-- I wish this month was over ---> I wish this month **were** over.
"were" is certainly correct, but in normal spoken conversation people often say "was". Native speakers often forget to use the subjunctive "were", especially when speaking. I tell my students that they only need to study this grammar point if they are planning to write an academic paper for study at a university or maybe for a professional conference. I believe the subjunctive in English is slowly dying and in a generation it will no longer be used.
多くの人が、文法のクラスで"I wish"を使った仮定法を習います。その場合動詞は以下のように変化します。

 -- I wish this month was overは、I wish this month **were** over.となります。

"were"は、確実に正しいですが、普通の会話では、よくwasという人もいます。 ネイティブも、特に会話では、仮定法の"were"を使い忘れます。私は、生徒には、大学で勉強し、レポートを書いたり、専門会議などに出る場合には、このことを知っておくようにと言います。

英語の仮定法は、徐々になくなり、世代を越えて、もはや使われなくなるように思います。

  • I wish this month would fly by

  • I wish this month was over already

    play icon

To say that time should 'fly by' or just 'fly' is an English idiom that means time passes quickly, like an aeroplane, or a bird in the sky. For example:

"Look how much the kids have grown, doesn't time fly!"
"I didn't realise it was so late! Doesn't time fly by?"
 'fly by' または 'fly'は、飛行機や空の鳥のように、時間が速く過ぎるという意味です。

例:
 "Look how much the kids have grown, doesn't time fly!"
子供たち、すごく成長したわね!時間が経つのはやくない?

 "I didn't realise it was so late! Doesn't time fly by?"
もうこんなに遅いと思わなかった。時間が経つのはやくない?

年末は"busy working" "hectic" ですよね。
現実ではなく「~ならなぁ(トオイメ」なんてニュアンスなら仮定法で。

でも、My goal is just around the corner.
と鼓舞してあげてくださいね。

  • can't wait till the end of the month

  • i want this month to end quickly

  • I am so busy, I can't wait for this month to end.

examples

"I have been so busy this month,
I just can't wait for it to end."
or
"I want the month to end quickly, I am so busy."
or
"I can't wait for the end of the month,
it's been back breaking."
back breaking is a phrase meaning hard work.
"I have been so busy this month,I just can't wait for it to end."
 今月はものすごく忙しい。終わるのが待ち遠しい。

"I want the month to end quickly, I am so busy."
 早く月が終わってほしい。すごく忙しい。

"I can't wait for the end of the month,it's been back breaking."
今月末が待ち遠しい。ものすごく疲れるよ。

back breaking とは、ひどく疲れるという意味です。

if you want to express that you want this month to be over then you could say ' i wish this month was over already' or 'i want this month to end quickly' both explaining that you want the month to end soon. A more common saying would be ' I can't wait for this month to be over/finish'
今月が終わって欲しいと言いたいなら、以下のように表せます:

'I wish this month was over already'
(今月早く終わればいいのに)

'I want this month to end quickly'
(今月は早く終わって欲しい)

どちらの文も、早く今月が終わって欲しいと伝えています。
より一般的な表現としては:

'I can't wait for this month to be over/finish'
(今月終わるのが待ち遠しい)

  • Work has been busy this month. I'm looking forward to it being over.

  • I've had a stressful month at work and the end can't come fast enough!

    play icon

Work has been busy means you've had lots to do. You could also say it's been back breaking which means hard work, or stressful if you have found it so. Hectic also means busy.
This month has been hectic. The end can't come fast enough
I'm happy the end of the month is approaching. It's been backbreaking.
I can't wait until this month is over, it's been so stressful
Work has been busy'は「忙しい」という意味です。
ほかに、'it's been backbreaking'と言うこともできます。これは「大変な仕事」「ストレスの多い仕事」を表します。
'hectic'も「忙しい」という意味です。

This month has been hectic. The end can't come fast enough
今月はすごく忙しい。早く終わって欲しい。

I'm happy the end of the month is approaching. It's been backbreaking.
月末が近づいているのがうれしい。本当に大変だった。

I can't wait until this month is over, it's been so stressful
今月終わるのが待ちきれない。とてもストレスがたまっているよ。

  • "_____ can not end soon enough"

    play icon

  • "In 2 days: I got sick, my car broke down and I argued with my boss..... This week can not end soon enough."

    play icon

When talking about an unejoyable/disastrous situation that you want to end, youcan use the expression "____ can not end soon enough." The "_____" is the situation that you want to end ('this week,' a meeting, a party, etc). This saying let's the listener know that you are (politely) looking forward to the end of the event

EX) "In 2 days: I got sick, my car broke down and I argued with my boss..... This week can not end soon enough."
早く終わってほしい悲惨な/つらい状況について言うなら、"____ can not end soon enough." という表現が使えます。
"_____" には終わってほしい状況(例えば 'this week' 'a meeting' 'a party' など)が入ります。これは「早く終わってほしい」という気持ちを丁寧に伝えます。

例:
"In 2 days: I got sick, my car broke down and I argued with my boss..... This week can not end soon enough."(あと二日。風邪を引いて、車が壊れて、上司ともめて.... ああ、早く今週が終わってほしい)

"Will it never end?" is a great way to suggest you have had enough of something!
It is a question that has been asked by those in misery for centuries:-)
Will it never end!?

  • I wish this month was already over.

  • I can't wait for this month to finally finish.

  • This month needs to finish soon.

I wish this month was already over.
I can't wait for this month to finally finish.
This month needs to finish soon.

I think this will definitely help you get your point across about the month. Also, the last two, I can't wait for this month to finally finish. And. This month needs to finish soon. Are perhaps a bit more informal.

I hope this helps.
Have a great day.

I wish this month was already over.(今月が早く終わってほしい)
I can't wait for this month to finally finish.(今月が終わるのが待ち遠しい)
This month needs to finish soon.(今月が早く終わってほしい)

これで、あなたの言いたいことは伝わると思います。

二つ目と三つ目の例は少しカジュアルです。

参考になれば幸いです。
良い一日を。
