I made the leap of faith today and decided it was time to ask for some vacation --
2 days in June, a week in October (for my wedding), and ... drumroll please...
November AND December off to travel around the world with Sophia.
My immediate manager signed it without a hassle. I didn't think it would be that easy. I then went and mentioned it to the COO (and my former boss) since I figured it would take an executive signature. He was happy to give me the time off and even suggested that I might be able to get some of the unpaid days I needed (15 days?) as comp time for PlanetSide. I have something like 200+ hours of vacation time stored anyway. Asking now was the right thing to do in so many ways.
I'm walking on air right now.
If only I could get a couple of bugs squashed I might even have some of the weekend to hang out with Sophia. That's the master plan.
