Dear Poll: Do You Get the Post-Vacation Blues?

Since it's our first day back after Christmas, I thought it would be an ideal time to address the topic of post-vacation blues. It's always tough to get back in the swing of things at work after a break; I, for one, find myself slow and easily distracted. But some people also get bummed out coming back after vacation. How about you?

I usually only work 3 days a week when I'm in school but full time on breaks so I just like to think about how much higher my paychecks will be! It works for me! :)

I'm back at work after 5 days off, and it's ok right now. Not busy because NO ONE IS HERE! But, I get another 5 days off starting Saturday :)

Absolutly! When I get back to work, my co-workers seem jealous of my tan and relaxation, so that makes me bummed.

Ugh, I'm always very sad to go back to school after spending breaks with my family. It lasts for like two weeks, then I return to normal levels of homesickness. ;)

Sometimes. I don't have to go back to school until Jan. 14 so I am still enjoying my winter break.

It definitely takes a couple of days for me to get back into the swing of things. I don't know if I'd call it "depression", but it's definitely hard to break out of that vacation mindset.

I get very down especially if I've been abroad, even just for a couple of days. The longer I've been away, the worse the depression is when I get back. Well when I eventually go travelling for a year, my mood should be very interesting when I get back :EVIL:;)

The first day or two is always hard for me. But if I'm on vacay for too long, I get lazy. It's nice to go back in the office and be more productive.

Am I crazy? I actually prefer being in the office. Vacation means too much unstructured time and that actually just makes me more miserable. I much rather be here at my desk working on things and obsessively checking sugar sites!

It wasn't as bad this year, since I switched jobs I could not take off any time this year around xmas or nye. But usually if I take a week off for something, then come back to work I ussually just stare at my computer for the whole day in a zombie state :P

I only get down the night before I go back. Knowing my family is still at home and I had to wake up and leave all of them made last night not very fun. But I'm cool now that I'm at work and catching up on celeb gossip!!!
