Two months into my so-called sabbatical, and it looks less and less like a true sabbatical. In fact, it probably just resembles a normal, well-balanced work schedule. I very rarely work weekends, work a few evenings, and then have taken a few vacations.
Despite my reservations about traveling, I love girls trips. They bring me back to my days at Smith, where you can have fun, be silly, and bask in the joy of being a female. I wish I made them more of a priority in my life – like do two long weekends a year.
