Vacation Time

This is just an observation/rant.

We all do it. Facebook stalk friends, old friends especially those from High School and College.  Comparing our lives to theirs, making sure our lives are still a tad better than some of the others.  I wonder how much of their profile is truth and how much is fabricated to make their lives look exciting.

The one thing I can't seem to get over is how much these old friends go on vacation. Its to exotic locations or just the number of trips they go on.  Every other post in my feed is someone on vacation and certain people show up more than others and they're always on vacation.  Its not like they live in Europe and can easily jet to another Country for the weekend, like Ashley use to when she lived in London. I wonder what job they have that gives them so much vacation time?  How much money are they making or is Dad bankrolling these awesome trips?
Why am I waisting my vacation time on my family (sorry Mom) vs. going to some exotic location with a few friends?

Any Thoughts?


  1. I've totally noticed this also! Now that I'm not in London anymore there will not be any spontaneous trips...we are real adults now. =(

  2. Not sure how I missed this post. But agree...maybe its that some ppl only post about their vacations?? Not sure but I am with ya...HOW are these people still not poor like us?
