When I heard my buddies were all going on a fishing trip, I really wanted to go.
- The thing is, I had all this work I had to have completed.
I work from home, but I still have deadlines I have to meet, else I won’t get paid for the projects that I work on. I wasn’t planning on going on any trips early in the month, it was just one of those things that everybody thought to do at the spur of the moment. I wish I would have known before I put my schedule together and committed myself to so much work. My buddies asked me if I was going to be able to make it for the fishing trip. They were renting a boat and everything. The boat even had air conditioning and it has solar panels to keep the batteries charged up. It sounded like so much fun. I didn’t want to say that I wouldn’t make it, I just decided I would work harder and finish up all my work and maybe I would be lucky enough to meet the guys on the last day they would be out fishing. I worked so hard, it was crazy and I raised my stress levels because I was really pushing myself. I worked late into the evening hours and I was drinking coffee and energy drinks like crazy. Then the next morning, I got up early and packed some things and went to meet my buddies at the lake. Fortunately, I was able to meet everybody just as they were getting ready to launch out into the water for the last day of fishing. I was glad I made it and I stayed up for as long as I could before I fell asleep. The AC on the boat felt so relaxing, I just couldn’t help but take a long nap.
