I don't have a 'picture this' for you all this week, as to be honest I've not taken many pictures. It's been quite a hectic week at work, as usual, and I've slept... a lot. I've been that tired and drained that as soon as I get home I'm falling asleep somewhere. I can be mid way through reading a book, or even blogs, watching youtube videos or watching a favourite TV show. It's getting rather frustrating, but my body will get used to it again I've just got to give it time. It's just the downside of taking two weeks off from work and setting your own schedule.
So onto the post itself:
Months ago I would regularly intentionally miss my 30 minute afternoon break from work in favour of completing more work. Sounds odd I know, but trying to pass time in the staff room flicking through a gossip magazine just didn't appeal to me. More recently I have been craving these previously missed breaks. But why the sudden change?
I used to read upstairs in our staff room, but I don't know if it's just at our work, but as soon as you open a book someone insists on taking to you. Now I'm not antisocial per say, but when I've spent hours working, to have 30 minutes to myself to do what I want to do is not a lot to ask. It sounds awful but I've started taking my breaks quite late on so I know that I wont have to share this precious time with anyone, and I can get lost in a good book. Currently I've been reading the two books pictured above and love them both, but really it doesn't matter what I'm reading I love this me time. The one part of my day where I can get lost in someone else's story and be inspired. (Though I always start my break checking blogger... well I need to scratch that itch!) As you can also tell by the pictures, I always need a midday caffeine fix, which obviously isn't working that well.
So that's all for today.
