I'm Tired of Relaxing!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Hedgehog Talk : One Thread

I've been on holiday for a week, and actually, I'm a little bored with it! Do you look forward to getting back to your hideous job after vacation?

Why, Kymm, my little Shakespearean tart, certainly you're familiar with Hal's speech on this topic in Henry IV, Part I?

"If all the year were playing holidays, / To sport would be as tedious as to work; / But when they seldom come, they wished-for come, / And nothing pleaseth but rare accidents."

A day or so at home lazing around reading is fine, but any longer than that and I start feeling like I'm just putting in time before Death shows up with his big scythe. Human beings are not designed for idleness. Sadly enough.

I usually run out of money before I run out of urge to vacation.. If I were independantly wealthy, I might tire of the holiday thing, perhaps. god, I'd love the chance to test *that* theory~!

Well, you already know my answer to this one!

I agree with Amanda: unlimited wealth makes a big difference. If I could mix-and-match my vacation time, with some spent puttering at home and some spent traveling around, I think I could stay on holiday indefinitely.

Of course, if I were that wealthy I would also install some frigging air conditioning in this place, so that "staying home" does not mean "sit around with stunned expression, too drained to move".

Believe me, a month of that is way too much vacation. Comas are not relaxing.

Of course, now that it's over, I'm sad... but then, I've never been terribly consistent about anything.

funny because i've just gotten back from vacation myself. at the end of my vacations, i always start getting depressed, a sort of combination of wanting to go home (i was away) and not wanting to go back to work. this year made worse by the fear that i'd have bad news waiting for me at work when i got back, which in fact i did.
