I got some good news and some bad news? Which one do you want first? Seeing that I’m a pretty happy ninja, let’s start this beautiful Monday morning with the good news.
I am 99% sure I am going to have internet access while I am abroad. That’s right mother lovers I thought I was going to be out of blogging commission for the next six weeks. If you have no clue what I am talking about right now, you can catch up on the conversation with this previous post. Basically, I’m heading off to a very tiny island for the next six weeks. I leave Thursday. I’ve had some decent traffic growth over the last couple months, and was scared six weeks of no posts would wipe away the gains. Would you drop me from your blog reads if I hadn’t updated in that long? You know you would. Jerk 🙂
Okay, let’s get on with the bad news. Actually, bad is an understatement. This is quite possibly the worst news you will ever hear. Brace yourself for impact….my internet connection abroad is going to be dial-up! I know, terrible right? Well this may not be as tragic as the time I watched someone step on a young bird, but it’s definitely a major downer. I didn’t even know dial-up existed anymore. What does a dial-up connection mean for this Debt Ninja? It means I probably wont have sweet pictures to accompany each blog post (it would take like 70min to upload an image). Also, depending on how frustrating the connection is, I may not be posting every single day.
In the previous post, I also mentioned I was having a dilemma with what to do with my mandatory overtime that I will be working. I could either cash out the 48hrs OT and get paid time and a half, or I could add it to my vacation time. I decided I’m gonna cash that bizznatch in. As much as it would have been nice to take a week off, I’m gonna take the money and run. This was also the overwhelming recommendation from the blogging community. I guess at the end of the day we are all cash whores 🙂
