We Need a Break

If you haven’t caught on from my previous post, social media is a huge part of my everyday life. I will read any Chris Brogan or Brian Solis blog post out there. Mashable is my home page at work so each Monday morning I can catch up on all things web-related that happened over the weekend. This field is my passion, my hobby, and slowly, it’s becoming my life.

Although I didn’t do as much as I would’ve liked, and I scored a pretty sweet sunburn, I got to catch up with friends, sleep way too much, and just enjoy life sans the fast-paced and hectic work demands. It was lovely. This break from the interwebs was exactly what I needed.

Now I’m ready to get back to the grind that is the work week feeling more refreshed than ever. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s only a 4-day week!
