Weekly Roundup: Not working, writing a book & customer service

by Kristina Tahnyak on November 16, 2012 · 2 comments

It’s Friday November 16 and I am on vacation.  All week I have been sleeping in, not waking up to my alarm clock and enjoying my free time.  I love being on vacation but I’m not sure why.  Maybe it’s because being on vacation is a nice break from my normal daily routine, maybe I love being on vacation because it means that I am not at work or maybe it’s because being on vacation means that I can do whatever I want whenever I want.

What is your favourite thing about being on vacation?

Enjoy these great posts from around the web and have a great weekend.

Enjoy your vacation Kristina! I am going on a cruise in February and have literally been excited about it since we booked it in June. It’s a chance to get out of the daily grind and just RELAX…something I am not very good at doing in my day-to-day life.

I also mentioned you in my post today about changing careers – definitely inspiring to see someone succeeding who is pursuing a different kind of work on the side than they do full-time.

Hey DC – thank you for your kind words of encouragment. I am definitely excited to find happiness in my career. The cruise sounds like a lot of fun. Breaking habits and actually just relaxing sounds like a good idea. If you need someone to guest post for you while you are gone let me know and we can exchange posts :-)
