I cannot take a vacation.
This week I decided to take some time off from work before it accumulates and I end up having to take the whole month of December off (again).
What I have learned this week is that I really cannot function without the structure of work in my life. Since I did not go anywhere or have any specific plans I sat and watched movies, sat in the sun, wandered around shopping centers and read some books.
For some people a week of nothing to do would be ideal but I crave having some sort of structure in my day. I need to feel like I have done something. Usually the one or two days of my weekend are all the boredom I need per week.
Not only was I without anything to do this week, I was also kind of out of thoughts. I guess you have to have something going on in life, taking part in something to generate thoughts and ideas. I think that was the most distressing aspect. I opened a ‘new post’ on this blog several times but could not think of anything I really wanted to write about.
I guess the lesson I learned this week is that next vacation I will make some plans.
