Wondering Wanderer

Week Notes Vol 73

September 25, 2020

I have not taken a vacation in 2020 since getting back from Estonia via Amsterdam in early January. There’s been one day wonders that were needed for maintaining sanity but I have not disconnected from screens and my job since the beginning of the year. Like many other people I’ve held back from taking PTO since there’s really nowhere to go. Many of my co-workers are reaching the point where thay stop accruing PTO since they have maxed out. From the employers point of view this can lead to situations where PTO will be taken at the same time leading to skeleton crews at work.

However for the next week I am removing Slack from my phone, turning off company email and calendar and trying to recharge. Will it work? Fingers crossed;)
