"Staycation" is a term that my friend Christina is using, when she has a vacation but stays in town anyway.
To tell you the truth I don't see the point of taking time off if you don't have to go anywhere.
On the other hand, I have reached my limits. I have worked all summer long full time, did not get any rest at all and a really difficult winter is ahead. Working full-time has its joys, but working more than 13 hours a day (since I can't desert my existing students) has exhausted me.
The thing is that I am such a workaholic and I cannot really enjoy laziness. I stayed on my couch yesterday evening from the time I got home from the office, slept at 21.15 and woke up really sore - back and legs hurting (because these days I all I do is sit on a chair at the office in front of a computer at work).
So after a lot of effort, I got out of my couch to do some housework!
After the "boring stuff", I decided it was time for a workout - I chose a video from the ones my ex-personal trainer is making (he has a fancy channel on youtube and although he speaks only to "celebrities" right now and not to simple people, I find his advice useful, when I get the chance to watch)
So the workout I chose was really simple. It consisted if 3 sets of exercises (20-14-9 repeats)
- push ups
- dead lift (without weight)
- lower abs exercise
- stair run
- mountain climbers
It's been a while since we last ate together! It has been a difficult week for him being sick with high fever in the middle of the summer. But everything's ok now and I hope I can spend some time with him (again being a teenager means he wants to spend time with his friends and not with his mum!)
Truth is I wasn't able to stay away from the computer - opened some e-mails from work and answered them - did some research, read about an interesting project and started making plans, started making plans for my students this year...
After all... it's raining guys...
Starting to get annoyed with people posting pictures of the beach, coffees and cocktails from their holiday - I know I had been doing it too in the past years but I makes me wonder - don't these people have to go to work some time?? I mean, it is acceptable to be away for a week, 10 days, even 2 weeks ... but the WHOLE summer?? Mercy!!!
