Have you ever saved up for months to buy something you really wanted? You keep tabs on how close you are to your goal and maybe even dream about it at night. How about looking forward to a trip somewhere? You plan and plan and daydream about how great this trip of a lifetime is going to be. Everyday you get one day closer to that trip and the expectation builds and builds.
Then, after the event finally happens, have you ever had a letdown? This happens to me all the time. In my case, the journey to a highly anticipated event is usually more fun than the event itself.
I have just had all of September, October, and most of November off. No work, all play, do anything you want to everyday. My wife and I did go to Japan for two weeks but other than that I did whatever I wanted.
You know what? I am now almost happy to be going back to work. What, you say? DayJobNuker is glad to be going back to work? Please tell me it isn’t so!
This is always the problem with DayJobNuker (that’s me!). I know I don’t want to work but then I get bored of not working too. This is about the third time in the last 10 years that I have had 3 months off at a time. In each case, I was glad to be going back to work because it is hard to be not working. It is hard to be working and hard to be not working….I think I have a problem!
For me, the dream of nuking my day job may in the end be more fun than the reality of it. Working on the dream and trying to find work from home jobs may in fact be more fun than actually achieving that goal. (Complaining about the job is kind of fun too!)
