To 60+ hours a week and some decently sized paychecks...I'm gonna enjoy myself while I can, cuz I'm gonna be busting ass in the Shipyard come next Tuesday.

So that's what's currently going on in my life in terms of work. My baby girl is healthy and she's loud and obnoxious like her daddy and we recently found kittens that we had previously thought dead outside somewhere. They are precious and I'm very happy they are still alive. Lots of shit seems to happen all at the same time with me.

How goes, whoever decides to read this shit?

Do your best to enjoy your current time and not worry about going back! That was always a struggle for me using PTO.

Oh I plan on enjoying it. Outside of dealing with loud children and spending quality time with the family, I've been playing Final Fantasy XIV's newest expansion and it is very fun.

Might I ask what you do for work?

I used to work as an insurance claims adjuster when I was stressing about PTO.

I'm in nursing school now, graduating in August. I think PTO will be a bit different when working in a hospital. The main difference will be that I don't have a pile of work growing as I am away from the office along with voicemails and emails waiting for my return. Which is a small part of why I left that type of work.

Not having work that accumulates when you're away from the office is very nice indeed. I wouldn't have the patience for that shit.

Enjoy your time off! The only thing that kept me from calling in today was the fact that I will be quitting (hopefully) by the end of this month.

I am doing okay. I am going to start making lists (checking them twice) about all the things I need to get done for the Peace Corps (packing/ items to bring, power of attorney, personal insurance etc) I will use my free time to try and get a better grasp of the spanish language, get in better shape, and read more about the history of Guatemala.

We get the 4th of July off which is great! We come back on the 5th though. I plan to get a drink after work wednesday and maybe catch the new spider man film.

I agree. I work in admissions and this can be very hit or miss depending on the season/ admissions cycle. I dislike taking time off because there is a strong chance I am going to come back to a mountain of emails and voicemails.

You got the 4th off?

Funny thing is: until very recently, I worked for Wal-Mart and they had me scheduled to work on the 4th of July. This year's 4th of July marks my 30th year on this rock. And they wanted me to work it. I won't be starting in the shipyard until the 9th. I get my birthday off. That is awesome. Fuck Wal-Mart and their poorly managed bullshit

Yeah I am a state employee. I get most (if not all?) federal holidays off. (Some state holidays too!) We get about 10 days off in the winter in the week of Xmas up to New Years. It is pretty nice at times but I spend some weeks working 60-70 hours as a salary employee.

I guess it evens out in the end. I will be having a mini vacation in the middle of this month which I am looking forward to.

Ahh all this talk about work is doing nothing good for my soul!

You play anything fun lately? Lol

I am playing through the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot. I am really digging this game. I havent played it in about 5 years . The story is still pretty weak and the side characters are boring but the action, exploration and puzzles is still really dope.

I've been hooked on FFXIV lately. Playing through the new expansion, both loving and hating how simple they made Tank.

They're focusing on more DPS orientation and less resource management. They removed enmity combos, added new abilities and every thing. Almost a complete rework. It is good because I just gotta press a couple of buttons and it is bad because it's kinda boring now. No more balancing enmity combos with DPS combos and whatnot.
