Digital Detox Month

9/01/2017


I love autumn. It's my favorite season of all and it always has been but it has become a fave even more so since I started working in aviation - it marks an easier period after a summer buzz. My job is a peculiar one - that kinda hit me when I started a routine of getting back from work at 8 a.m. on a Monday while everyone's work week was just beginning. And again, going to work at 8 p.m. on a Friday night wearing a sweatshirt and carrying meal boxes while everyone's dolled up definitely screwed up any chances of me becoming a party animal.


The same goes for summer - while everyone goes on holidays and people go into a chill zone from June to September, I dread summer. It's pretty much the time of biggest workload in my field of work. This year wasn't an exception and was probably the toughest, hardest one yet out this entire decade that I've been employed. On top of all that shift work, I found myself doing lots of blog related projects - and those were a mini break I actually had fun working through! However, paired with my shifts, they have also drained me from energy so I'm entering September very tired but also very excited!

September is special - I finally get to go on a vacation and all I want to do is relax. I'm so excited about late mornings for two days in a row (or more!), not having any particular obligations, no places to be, nowhere to be late and no deadlines to be met. Also, our marriage and relationship mark their thirteenth and seventh anniversary, respectively. There are also some things in the works that will be revealed later on this year which are very exciting - I'll try not to get overexcited and do any work on them either - they'll have to wait for October. And social media will too because September is my own Digital Detox Month. There won't be any posts here at the blog or on my social media channels but I may pop an occasional Insta story here and there. Hopefully, I won't be stalking my favorite Insta people as much and will properly disconnect and enjoy life. Have a great September peeps, enjoy the beginning of autumn and see you in October!

  • Jesen je moja ljubav. Tačno osjetim da se početkom septembra vratim u život nakon iscrpljujućeg ljeta. Još od školskih dana gajim simpatije prema ovom godišnjem dobu a te simpatije su podebljane otkako sam počela raditi u avijaciji - jesen označava nešto mirniji radni period nakon haotične ljetne sezone. Moj je posao nekonvencionalan - to mi je postalo jasno kada sam upala u rutinu vraćanja kući sa posla u osam ujutro, u ponedeljak. Tačno kada svima radna sedmica počinje. Kontra svijeta, što bi se reklo. Ista stvar mi se desila i kada sam skužila da redovno idem u noćnu smjenu petkom navečer u dukserici i sa upakovanom hranom u cekeru, dok ostatak naroda ide da se zabavi. Moje šanse da postanem divlja partijanerica su mi sasječene u korijenu (što i nije šteta, mislim da bi bila grozna u tome).
  • Sličan princip vrijedi i kada je ljeto u pitanju. Dok se svi odmaraju, posla je manje i uživa se u ljetovanju od juna do septembra, ja se ljeta užasavam. Tokom ljetne sezone imam strašno mnogo posla, strašno zgusnute smjene i gotovo nimalo vremena za odmor. Ova godina nije bila izuzetak i čak je bila ubjedljivo najteža, najnapornija od svih deset koje sam "nabrala" u svojoj profesiji. Povrh napornih smjena, uhvatila sam se u dosta živahnom rasporedu i mnogo uzbudljivih projekata vezano sa blogom. Sreća pa sam ih imala jer su mi razbili monotoniju i bili su poput mini bjega od obaveza. Ipak, u kombinaciji sa smjenskim radom, sve je skupa isisalo svu moju energiju tako da septembar dočekujem umorna ali i puna optimizma, a otkriti ću vam i zašto!
  • Septembar je poseban - napokon idem na odmor i sve što želim je upravo to, odmor. Tako sam uzbuđena i radujem se ostajanju do kasno u krevetu jutrima uzastopno, bezbrižnim danima bez obaveza, bez osjećaja da negdje kasnim. Također, u septembru slavimo 13 godina veze i sedam godina braka, tako da je i to divno. Radim na nekim stvarima koje ću otkriti kasnije tokom godine - ali pokušati ću da angažman na njima odložim za oktobar. Društvene mreže će također na pauzu. Mjesec septembar je moj mjesec digitalnog detoksa. Neće biti postova ni ovdje, na blogu. Možda nekada objavim nešto na Insta pričama ali bez obaveza. Držim fige da se uspijem kontrolisati da ne uhodim omiljene profile i ljude na Instagramu kako bi detoks bio pravi. Uživajte u septembru, želim vam divan početak jeseni i vidimo se u oktobru!
