Should I go on vacation for a week?
    #5714511 - 06/05/06 01:18 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I've been offered a vacation for the duration of this week...my birthday is on Thursday and as a gift my girlfriend's mom wants to take the two of us up to Cape Cod where they rent a house every year. We'd rent this nice little house on a beautiful lake and I would spend the days reading, sneaking off to smoke some pot, eating wonderful seafood, and swimming if the water's warm enough. Pure and utter relaxation.

I'm unemployed. I need to find a job. Anytime I spend lounging by the lake is time I'm not at a computer actively hunting for a job. I don't know if I can justify this little vacation but god it sounds like just what my soul needs. I'm really torn.

I'd go for it...but I'm a wealthy scion from a blue-blooded and snooty family. I have the luxury to indulge in such things.

Have you ever considered becoming a drug dealer? You'd make a lot of money and you'd have a bunch of free time.

Go for it.

2 weeks of unemployment won't make it any harder to find a job when you get back.

Have fun.

I did? I had a vacation at the last weekend of April, that's about it. And before that the only vacation I had was the Canadian gathering in late january.

if he's got 10 resume's out, thats 10 interviews he wont make that week, that in
turn will put him further behind, it's time he can also use to keep looking.

Last night I ordered pot delivery from a new service for the first time. They picked me up downstairs in a red pickup and offered me three kinds of weed and some cocaine. I think the driver was wearing brass knuckles, too. :lol:

Those were weekend vacations, I didn't even miss any work for them. What I'm worried about here is missing out on interview opportunities plus the chance to continue job hunting. There's no internet connection int he house itself and I don't think that I'll be picking up any WiFi networks on my laptop. And if I can't look for a jiob, I'll feel useless.

A semi-freind of mine got shot working for a delivery service when his boss sent him a little bit too far uptown. He didn't even really need the money. Alot of people, particularly teenagers, don't really get how serious the consiquences for dealing can be. Kind of unrelated, but whatever.

OK, here's how I look at it:

If you are burnt out and stressed about finding a job, you probably won't make a great impression during any interviews you might manage to get during the time you are not on vacation.

If you take the time you say your soul needs right now, rest, relax, maybe do some visualization about what you want to accomplish when you return from vacation, you will return to your job search charged-up and ready to go.  The interviewers you meet after your R&R session will be impressed by your energy and focus, and you will be much more likely to get the job.  :thumbup:

You have the rest of your life to work. Just leave a voice mail explaining the situation and request a rescheduling if possible, check it regularly.

Do what you feel is best for yourself bro. Maybe a vacation would kick your motivation into overdrive when you do get back, or it could have the opposite effect. Either way, a vacation to cape cod sounds like a lot of fun, but if it means missing out on a bunch of interviews then maybe it's not worth it? :shrug:

That's a week towards the next rent with nothing saved towards it...

That said, you could always put your shit in a storage unit, go on a vacation, party and goto gatherings all summer, and then get a job in the fall and rent another apartment. :shrug:

call them, the ones you had a serious interest in, call and ask if they've had time to look over your resume. if they havent, they like the initiative and will pull ours from the pile, if they have they may schedule an interview or at least give you a little more though, keep your name fresh in their mind

Well I'm moving into my mother's guest room in August, and next month's rent is already paid for because I realized my security deposit can simply cover that. Gonna live with my mom or a month, learn Spanish, become CELTA accredited, and then head down to ARgentina.

this is starting to sount too good to be true, theres gotta be some kina catch
like where you'll be living in your moms basement at 32. Be respectful enough
to you, your mom, her basement and your GFs parents to decline... get a job
you wouldnt be asking this if you didnt want someone to talk you out of it.

What is CELTA? Do you have a job lined up in Argentina? Why do you want to leave the U.S.?

you wouldnt be asking this if you didnt want someone to talk you out of it.




Sorry Pris but you're not as uber-perceptive as you may believe yourself to be. I posted and asked this simply because I'm stuck quite in the middle between the two and I just wanted to see each side presented to me from varying viewpoints.

Well I'm moving into my mother's guest room in August, and next month's rent is already paid for because I realized my security deposit can simply cover that. Gonna live with my mom or a month, learn Spanish, become CELTA accredited, and then head down to ARgentina.




What is CELTA? Do you have a job lined up in Argentina? Why do you want to leave the U.S.?




CELTA is a world-reknowned program GnuBobo talked to me about two nights ago when we hung out..they teach you how to be a teacher, especially a teacher of English as a second language. Then it becomes easy to get work in foreign countries teaching English, which is what I would do in Argentina.

I've wanted to leave the U.S. for a bit and my girlfriend and her roomie are moving to ARgentina. I'm going to wait a month and save up after they move there, and then follow them down to Buenos Aires.

I'm trying to look at this from the outside in...

guess it comes down to what is most important to you right now.


Rest and relaxation is always nice...and it might clear your head and help you make some better decisions for your future.
I'm not saying that you have made any bad ones yet...so don't take that wrong.
I'm just saying that with a clear head you might think clearer...and make better ones.


But if you do go on vacation don't sit around and worry about getting a job...
the whole time you are trying to relax and have some fun.

dig?


This is the girlfriend that is moving to Argentina soon?

If it is... maybe you should go spend some time with her before she leaves.

And it sounds like her family likes you...or they wouldn't have invited you along.


Whatever you do...you always seem to land on your feet!~
You are a bright intellegent young man...bro.
Sometimes you just have to listen to your gut feeling...is this what I need right now?


good luck with your decision...

much  :heart: to ya!~
