I took two weeks vacation to try to get some of my personal work done and to get my mind off the office. The stress had been getting to me, and I was getting more irritable by the day. So some time off seemed welcoming.
One week has gone, and the office still on my mind. It’s not that I think things would go wrong as I know I have an excellent team to count on. It’s that I know on my return nothing would have changed. The things that were stressing me out still exists, and I don’t expect them to vaporise in two weeks.
I’m trying to enjoy these two weeks at least, but the thoughts of returning are taking away from it all. It doesn’t help that I’m using the time to catch up on errands and my thesis.
I envy people who go on vacation and forget about work altogether. I wish they could teach me how they do it.
