Starting a new job after 6 months off..

After my last job I decided to take 6 months off. In that time I bought a flat with my girlfriend and spent

time doing it up etc. I also spent the time working on my showreel (which you need for any job you apply

for in my field) I was only after one particular company and found out I got it a couple of days ago starting

on Monday.

 

I'm over the moon as money is rapidly running out and the project I'm working on is very exciting but at

the same time I've become precious about my time. It the longest I've ever been off and I think it's going

to take a good while to get used to again.

 

Also as monday approaches I'm getting well nervous as what I'm doing is a big step up.

 

Perhaps I've just had too much time off and need to man up! :unsure:

I have taken the day off work today, and am sat at home with not much to do... I have a collection of over 1000 DVD's, every video game console under the sun, and a load of reading material... but am bored s***less..... I appreciate weekends, but weekdays are a pain in the ass for me..

 

what field is it you work in?

CG animation. Personally I wasn't bored at all. I'd never had more than 2 weeks off in 10 years. I 'd gotten really tired of stairing into a monitor 8 plus hours a day often working on stuff I wasn't that into or stuff I knew wouldn't look great in the end due to many reasons.

Working on my reel at least meant i was doing stuff I liked for myself which hadn't happened in a while. I feel fresh again. I'm also fatter.
