It's Monday, I woke up at 9:39, and I wasn't late for work.
It hasn't fully sunk-in that I have my life back for two whole months — it takes about two or three weeks to reach my Full Relaxation Potential (FRP). However, once FRP is achieved, the following things start to happen:
- days of the week will no longer matter
- time will be a mere suggestion (except when meeting up with other people, paying bills, and so on)
- my handwriting will deteriorate from lack of use to roughly match that of a six-year-old's
- bedtimes get later
- wake-up times get much later
- I can stand to look at a red pen again (albeit from a distance)
Now, I know what you might be thinking:
Those friggin' slackers... they get two months off in the summer! [begin snarky, sarcastic tone] I wish I had two months off in the summer.
To this, I have a few stock responses:
- If you do your job right, and I think I do, you'll be well burnt-out by the end of ten months of going hard every day.
- We pack twelve months' worth of work into ten, so what are we going to do with the rest of the time?
- Most people don't have to pre-schedule their bathroom breaks during their workday.
- You're more than welcome to join us.
