I have been feeling so very spring-inspired lately! The weather in Madison has started to warm up which always inspires me to whip out all of my sundresses and bright lipsticks! Plus, going on vacation this upcoming summer doesn’t hurt either 😃 Since I graduated from college a couple of years ago, I haven’t really had a proper vacation. I’ve had little trips here and there in between jobs but they’ve always been fraught with stress because it can be incredibly nerve-wracking to end an old job and start a new job. For the first time, I’m actually using my vacation time to take a vacation. I know, groundbreaking right?
Before I entered the work world, I never quite understood what people meant by needing a vacation or needing a break from work. As a student, you really have complete control over your day-to-day schedule. Outside of classes, you’re free to study, to work, or to socialize at the times and places you choose. Even though I interned or worked through most of my school breaks, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything by not taking a vacation. After working for two years? I definitely understand the need for a vacation now. Working full-time can feel incredibly restricting (even if you have the best job in the world) and sometimes you just need a little time to wipe your brain of anything and everything work related!
What are your plans for the summer? I hope you get the chance to relax and enjoy the warm weather - and maybe take a little vacation of your own!
