I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to make some vacation plans for the future.
Some of us have started to do more things as the pandemic eases; some have not. Your ability to do things varies by country, employers, comfort level, and more. I’ve been doing a few things, and actually had a few vacations this year. Short, but still, I’ve had some.
I want more, especially as many things still aren’t normal. My wife and I started to look forward and plan some vacations. Some plans are more likely, and some are very speculative. We’d like to go to Machu Picchu in Peru, but the country and been opening and closing, and it feels too unstable to really plan something.
However, we have been looking at perhaps going to Alaska. It’s open, outdoors, and less risky than other places. It’s also a bucket list item for both of us, so we’re trying to make some semi-firm plans for the early fall.
We have other ideas as well, like going back to New Zealand. We know we can’t go. Yet, but we’re making some plans for when we can.
