Two down, three to go!! Three more days to go until I am free! For the first time in two years, I am taking a vacation. I am counting the days. I totally needed one. My previous post about working on Easter, was screaming, “I NEED A VACATION!” How often do you guys take a vacation from your jobs? Most people I know seem to take at least one or two a year. I have realized that sometimes a vacation is necessary to just escape, and then come back recharged. Don’t take any vacation for years and you will end up feeling trapped and miserable like I had been feeling lately from being sick of kitchen life.
There were many times I have been meaning to request some time off, but I never found the right time. Whenever I wanted to ask, it was right then and there. And I don’t think I could’ve been saying, “I’m taking a vacation starting tomorrow” without giving notice ahead of time. That’s the spontaneous steak in me. I can’t tell you how many times I have gone off on road trips on a whim, without planning ahead of time. But that was back when I was younger. As much as I would love to do that now, work obligations may frown upon it. So yeah, I requested and planned the time off this time, ahead of time.
Is it weird that I feel like I am breaking out of jail or something? Lol It’s not because I HATE my work that much, but I think I was just burning out and needed that time away.
Oh yeah…and thank goodness the weather is expected to be cooling down next week. It’s been torturously hot this week. I am hoping for pleasant weather all week long on my days off. Way too often when the weather is lovely, I want to skip work and head to the beach. And now I will be able to!
I am going to have more time to explore with this:
It’s a Canon Rebel EOS 450D. My dad let me borrow it. I am not sure when he is going to need it back. I guess when he goes somewhere and wants to take a lot of photographs, he will ask for it back. I was telling Faye of Fayesfork that maybe my dad will let me keep the camera. After all, I am his ONLY daughter and he can’t and shouldn’t say no to me. So there! It is mine now. And HE can borrow it when HE needs to lol.
