Over on the Jobster blog, Julian and Shannon from Exceler8ion post about taking a grown-up gap year. I like the idea (and mine might involve culinary school in Europe), though I have never been in a financial position to do it. I've seen what a sabbatical can do to someone's perspective and it's pretty awesome. Maybe I'll do it someday. In the meantime, my manager has to convince me into taking vacation time (yesterday, she convinced me to book a spa day and therefor, there will be no blog posting next Thursday and Friday).
I hope Julian and Shannon's next post is about how to address your gap on your resume when in an interview situation (hint, hint). And I hope they write it on Shannon's PC rather than Julian's Mac so we can actually see the apostrophes...sorry Julian, I had to ; )
