I don’t know if it happen with everyone, but it definitely happens with me. All throughout the month I crib about the amount of work that I have to complete and how I don’t get enough holidays, or how I am unable to travel often because I am so loaded.  Whenever a long break comes, up until the last day before the tiny vacation starts I have no idea what ill do for the next 3/4 days, usually I end up just lazing around which is very ironic to the amount of cribbing I do.
