So take a vacation

If only it were that easy 😅

I’m counting down days to my next vacation. 31 days left. I’ll be out for a week. Touch base with your project team, coordinate vacations, and make sure you don’t log in to the devices during your vacation.

@ EY we’re going to Puerto Rico, PR is almost 70% fully vaccinated, warm October weather, and we’ll be away from work. 2-3 days aren’t enough for me to refresh and recharge. Long weekend can only help me catch up on house chores and lost sleep. Make sure you use PTO days before you lose them.

Is this feeling regret or nervousness or felt settling? Started new job and had 60k pay bump and same hours. I would say pay bump is main driver but also the professional development in learning new tech. I do feel kind of unexcited though. Maybe its some of the benefits like 21 days pto instead of 28 plus collective disconnects. Also no wellbeing sub. Having to set passcodes like every hour for security reasons. Is this just new job jitters or prelude to something people experienced before?
