It’s been a few days since I returned from my vacation. I thought I would feel energized and excited to be back to work. The vacation was supposed to be a sort of rest period during my stressful work schedule. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. I actually want a vacation from my vacation because it was really tiring emotionally and physically. But to be honest, it was really fun. It really feels good to have a break from work and just be exhausted from having fun. I am so excited to plan for the next vacation.
What’s your purpose? I think this kinda jarred me at the start in finding the reason on why people travel. It makes it a big complicated when you actually travel with them. For me, I was really there to experience the city and enjoy the company of friends that I have not seen for quite some time. Of course, I was not sure if everyone was on the same page here, but I quickly recovered when I realized that. I still enjoyed my time with the original purpose intact. In SF, I was able to finally go to Napa Valley, and do more of the touristy stuff in San Francisco. I spent a good time with Jon and Don who I have not seen for months. I met new friends through Danuel so it was pretty neat as well.
Extremes. SF Pride is just overwhelming and exhausting. There was just an abundance of stimuli everywhere that just throws you off sometimes. It drives people crazy — including me. It was tiring too. Everyday, I slept around 3 AM, spending time with Dan and Chuck on the 1st night, with other friends on the 2nd night and went solo on the 3rd night. By Monday, I was already ready to just sleep in the whole day to be honest. I was just tired and ready to call it over. It was also good that I had DC to look forward to so I was just really ready for my DC trip when Monday rolled in.
Future Home. Once again, I visit a place and I profess my undying love to that city. Sorry, still no love for SanFo, but DC is just a-mazing. It is now the #1 place to move for me because the city is just spectacular. The weather is not as bad as Chicago, and it is really progressive. Of course, landing a job there is a different story because almost all jobs are for the Federal government — a tough cookie to crack. For now, it is an option along with Chicago and Seattle. I’m excited about it.
