Things are always a bit worse-for-wear in ye olde cranium when resurfacing from a vacation extending beyond a long weekend. When you're away for less than four days, the brain is a little mushy, but bounces back easily enough, not having had time to rejuvenate. You may be somewhat hazy on the Monday, but the transition doesn't require any real necessity to grease the grind wheel.
On the other hand, when you leave for ten days (as I just have), a few things happen: the break has been lengthy enough to transport your existence into an alternate territory, thus refueling your mind with things that have pushed everything else into a far abyss. Being gone for a substantial amount of time actually makes you feel revitalized, armed with a renewed desire to get things going. You come back reinvigorated, complete with endless motivation to take things on. The only roadblock is getting into that headspace to seize the momentum without succumbing to being overwhelmed by the multiple tasks that have stacked up during your absence. Transitioning from vacation head to work mode while staying on top of things is the most challenging part of homecoming. To me, anyway.
And with that said, while I had the most amazing time (I'm assuming you've been following my adventures in Europe? ), I am incredibly happy to be home and to proceed with summer, right here in the city. There really is no place like it.
Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks while I roll out some of my looks from this eurotrip (and bear with me while I get settled back into the groove)!
