I took the day off today as part of my continuing to take a random day off during the summer. There’s no public long weekend holiday in the month of June, so I decided to make one for myself. I slept in until 11am which left me with a rested feeling upon waking up. I then spent the afternoon cleaning up my apartment and playing video games. For dinner, I had spaghetti and some BBQ ribs. It wasn’t a jam-packed day but a leisurely one and that’s the kind of day I wanted.
I wish I had employed this “day off” strategy when I was working at EA. I accumulated so much holiday when I was at Black Box. I was paid out for those days when I got laid off but I probably should have just taken a random day off here and there.
I’m looking forward to another extra long weekend in July.
