Once again I find myself in San Juan, this time sitting in Senior Frogs by the pier surrounded by intoxicated passengers of an affiliated cruise line and karaoke songs that are reminiscient of Hellen Keller playing on a "My First Keyboard". However, the internet is reasonably fast and the food, while overpriced, is not terrible.
Christmas is fast approaching and for me, as most of you know, that generally means more work which is great if you happen to be paid by the hour but it's not so much so if you are paid by the day (or salaried). As my hours go up I see my value dropping and it's not a great feeling. On those days you just have to remind yourself that there are days where you're worth quite a bit.
As a little gift to myself I've revamped my office a little - it's the small things in life that you have to look forward to right?! It's times like this that all it takes is a little recharge... a day or two with a light workload or some time ashore that makes all the difference!
