Calling In Sick For Work
Now that I have given my resignation notice at work, I feel the need to use up some sick time. So I called in today so I could get some things done. It really is amazing what I can accomplish in one day if I stay home from work.
Seriously, so far today I have:
- Cleaned the apartment
- Finished doing laundry
- Took out the garbage
- Signed up for internet service (more to come tomorrow)
- Bought a wireless router
- Finished my banner image so it now rotates again
- Finished tweaking my template (homepage stuff)
- Read all of the updates in my feed reader
- Installed software on my MacBook
- Signed up for a few new websites
It sure feels more productive than a typical day at work, where all I do is sit there and pretend to be busy when really I am not. I can actually work on productive things instead of surfing the web and sitting in bathroom stalls.
I Could Get Use To This
I am really looking forward to finishing up at work so I can be productive like this everyday. I can only imagine what I could accomplish in a month on the internet without a day job. So I have some really high hopes for getting some things going and making a true run and making money from what I love…blogging.
Now…What To Do With The Rest of My Sick Time?
Apparently I can cash out vacation time but sick time is use it or lose it. I have 36 hours of sick time left after calling in today, but only have 7 work days left since I am working through the October 16th but have a vacation next week.
I sort of feel bad about calling in but at the same time I feel like it would suck to lose all the paid time off that I have earned. I mean, why go to work when I really don’t have to?
Has anyone else ever been in this situation? It always feels like I am obligated to be at work but ehh…
