I Needed A Vacation

When I go for a walk at lunch, why do things tend to solidify in my mind?

I needed a vacation from work. A good time off where I could just relax. That was supposed to be the end of March...

Moving isn't a vacation. Even if there was a week where I wasn't working or driving cross-country. Not the same thing. I need a vacation...

But, of course, I have no vacation time. You get it as the year progresses, so on my first paycheck I earned 5 hours of PTO. That means at the end of this month, I'll have 10 hours and could take a day off... whooooopie.

College sucked, because I didn't have money, but I did have the ability to do basically everything on my own schedule, except for a few assignments & classes. Now I have money, but I don't have the ability to do anything on my own schedule, except on the weekends.

So at the end of July, I should have 40 hours of PTO (assuming I don't use any between now and then, yeah right). August or September, I should be able to take a week off. That should be nice.
