Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.
This week took forever to end. Maybe I’m just experiencing a little jet lag from being off from work all last week. Although, this week felt long, but my workflow was pretty ‘lax. Thankfully, I didn’t come back to work with an inbox outpouring with work or incomplete tasks that I needed to finish. Being caught up and ahead before I left allowed me to enjoy my vacation days a little more. Sometimes, even when you’re on vacation, “work” can sometimes creep in your mind. “”Was that email sent?” “Is the office burning down, because my absence is unbearable?” Thankfully, the building was still in tact when I got back on Monday and I didn’t return to any major problems that developed while I was out. Success!
Next week should feel a little better. We get an automatic mid-week break thanks to the Fourth of July falling on a Wednesday. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I prefer taking days off in the middle of the week. Doing that helps you recover from Monday and Tuesday, which can be horrid. Plus, you only have a couple of days left before the weekend. This increases my productivity like crazy.
As of this moment, I really don’t have any major plans for the 4th except to drink cocktails while watching popping fireworks. I’ll probably spend most of the day at home, watching ID Network, and under a fan. That makes me so happy just thinking about it!
For now, let’s have a relaxing weekend and enjoy this week’s Link-End Round-Up.
