If I could take a six-month break from work or school, I'd want to take a six-month break from both, honestly. I go to school during the evening hours and work during the day, so right now, other than times when we are out of school for holidays and such, I get no breaks at all. I only have three semesters left in school, so it's okay and I can make it. It's just been a really long time since I started and it feels like forever since I've been able to do what I wanted to do for more than a month or so.
If I could take off both for six months, I would travel. I would spend the first two weeks just hanging out at home, getting things done that I've wanted to get done for a while. We need to paint the little bathroom, get some new carpet installed in our bedroom, and do a few other minor things. I would take some time to read and crochet as well. (another blog; another day).
After that two week period, I would take off on a world journey if I could. I would start out by flying to Europe, and then just going from there. I'm pretty adventurous, so I think I could even do the backpack thing if given the chance.
I'd stay gone to other countries for 3 months or so.
Then, I'd come back to the US, head down to Bonita Springs, Florida, and spend the rest of the time down there on the beach. That would be heavenly, as it's my favorite place to be.
One day, I'll make this happen. Or, at least I'll give it my best shot.
