After coming back from Portugal to a bunch of notifications, I decided this time that I would go one step further.

Part of the joy of Automattic is that we document everything since Communication is Oxygen. If you miss something, there will be a P2 post or Slack threads you can search on our internal Matt’s Global Search tool (which a bunch of folks just made so much better with ElasticSearch!) so you know what’s happened.

I keep a private personal p2 which I have a template for most work days with things I do regularly and then add new to-dos to it, so of course, I made a quick one today to make sure I got everything covered.

Today I went through and did my final holiday prep before heading to Orlando with the family.

People know I’m AFK, I’ve set my status on Slack to AFK, and whenever people mention me on internal p2 sites, my name will appear with a 🌴 to show I’m AFK. Pretty useful!

When I come back, I can catch up with the weekly roundups, check in with my tea, Sirius, to see what’s been happening, and jump back into work.
