What I Have To Say About Sports And Other Stuff
The Art of the Staycation
In addition to all of the other stresses in the average life of a 20-something, we have the added pressure of not being to afford anything … even time off.
Some are in jobs that don’t allow us to take vacation and those who are lucky enough to have paying jobs that offer us 10 days a year, can’t afford to do anything with those freebies.
“Staycation” is a new phrase that has popped up in recent years to define time spent at home without the distractions of the work environment, an opportunity to give your brain time to breathe without blowing hundreds of dollars on a hotel in a new city or on a beach.
But this generation is nothing if not creative. And instead of letting our lack of funds taking us to cool places bring us down, we have instead created a term that has permeated the culture and allowed us to take an opportunity to take time off, chill out and create our own experiences. Gone are the days when the requisite four-person family with their dog pile into the car with beach equipment for the Saturday-to-Saturday stay on the water. Millenials are creating new and exciting vacations, and we are OK with that.
