“Happy New year!”, my parents shouted when I called them up 01-01-2018 at 00:02.
Happy new ear you mean 😐
Only two weeks ago I was beyond excited for the Christmas trip to Ireland and the remaining days off.
I was going get so much done, but at the same time rest and sleep so I could be energized for work again.
Well, here I am, first day of work.
Not ready nor feeling energized yet.
The incorrect temperature kept me awake last night.
I decided to get up earlier and drive to work.
Maybe I could somehow avoid the annoying “Happy new year” wishes.
I find them awkward.
Some people are ok with a handshake.
Others find it rude if you don’t give them 3 cheek kisses.
I’m a “don’t get into my personal space” type of person.
I also don’t like answering the typical questions.
“How did you spend your holidays?”
“Do you have any new years resolutions?”
People are hardly ever genuinely interested.
Questions like these, usually come out of politeness or avoiding awkward silences at the coffee machine.
I already had my frustration on the road and with my computer.
My bank account looks emptier than I had planned for.
We did grocery shopping for things we are probably not going to use this week, but forgot to buy coffee.
Welcome back to reality!
How do you experience a first workday after a vacation?
