I am pretty good with change, but when I was trying to decide on a new name for my Texas Travel Girl website I just couldn’t let it go. I love the name too much, but at the same time I felt it was not “right” for what I wanted to do.
So I thought long and hard about it and I decided two sites would work better for me, and I always joke that my main goal in life is to escape my cubicle as often as possible, and the name Cubicle Escapee was born.
Truth is, I often feel as if I am battling my cubicle.
I hate working in a cubicle, zero sunlight, I stare at a computer all day, so much time is spent on the phone, and GOD help me when I am sitting next to someone that is sick and hacking up a lung (eww!) .. it is truly dreadful. Yes, I have looked for something a little more exciting and I have found those jobs tend to offer 10 WHOLE DAYS in PTO. I currently have 25.
No thanks, I will take this cubicle over some other dreadful job that gives only 10 measly days.
for now anyway
I don’t really just escape my cubicle for International travel, although believe me I do try to plan that as often as possible, but I find that weekends are a great way to escape too. There are a lot of wonderful escapes out there.
I am dedicating this site to the every day person, who works and has to use their days off & PTO to travel. People like me.
I will write about saving money for that RTW trip I am dreaming of taking. I however will not be doing this trip for a VERY long time, so these posts won’t be too overwhelming, until I decide to get serious about it. I only have $18 in my savings for that trip, I know I want to do it, but I need a few things to line up first. So while I save casually I need a few debts to end before I can get really serious about it. All my Rio 2016 posts will be here from now on too. I am very serious about getting to Rio for the Olympics. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity. The first Olympics in South America? Count me in. Even if I am eating rice & ramen for every meal in 2016. 🙂
I will write about food, road trips, budgets, flights & international trips, when I finally take one. There will be a lot of Disney, Nerdy trips & possibly a book review or two (especially when I am broke and all I can afford to do is get to and from work!) If it involves being away from work, it will be here 🙂
I will defeat this blasted cubicle
When I take a cheap trip, which I do often, I will let you know how I did.
Us Cubicle Junkies have to stick together after all! Because, any cubicle junkie knows, you really must escape as often as possible or you will go INSANE!
