Half Day Wednesdays

2 Feb

One of my job perks is a 35 hour flex time schedule. I used to have Friday afternoons off which was awesome, but after some internal changes I now have Wednesday afternoons off. I must admit, at first, I was super bummed for obvious reasons , but I’m mentally adjusting to it.

Pros for having Wednesday afternoons off:

  1. Good mid week break.
  2. Still in productive mode (gym, blogging, etc)
  3. Still can run errands, go to doctors appointments before it’s dark out.
  4. Fridays = Happy Hour!

Sometimes I’d come back into Manhattan from Brooklyn (where I live) on Fridays and it was getting a little annoying. But now I can join the rest of the world for drinks at 5!

So I lugged the laptop to the office and am planted in the adjacent Starbucks till my 5:30 vinyasa class.

In other exciting news, I’m going Europe for a month! Not till next summer, as in over a year from now and nothing is booked yet but I can still be excited right?

Remember my friend Anthony? (Scroll to the bottom of that post)

He’s in Germany for a few years for the Air Force and I think him and I are going travel around Europe together. We spoke yesterday on the phone and I said that I was coming for a month, visiting him, traveling around and he was more than welcome to join. We’re both 95% sure we can take that much time off at once which is the main hurdle, well that, and paying for everything, but I’ve got more than a year so I think I can manage.

Mite as well when I’m young right? Who knows where we (or I) will go but personally I’d like to visit Milan, Prague, some small town on the coast in France, Barcelona, Greece and obviously cities in Germany.

I’ve been to:

  • Paris
  • Nice (France)
  • Monaco
  • Rome
  • Florence
  • Assisi
  • Pisa
  • Dublin
  • Galway
  • Dubrovnik (Croatia)

Looking to significantly expand that list before I’m 25.

Confession: I’ve already been thinking that I need to have a smart phone and a smaller laptop so I can blog and tweet while I’m there. I wonder if there’s Four Square in Europe? How cool would it be to check in to places in different countries?

I know fellow bloggers/social media addicts get this. It’s the others …“So does Snooki like know you’re following her???” – Curious non social media savvy friend of mine.
