I semi-unintentionally took days 17-20 off. Those four days were spent in nonstop stress mode as I tried to wrap up the Winter quarter. Four days of writing and editing papers totaling 30+ pages is not fun and it was hard to find happy moments. I guess the happy moments of those four days were the times I got to pull away from my desk, which was only to eat, sleep, and go to class. Plus my plans for next quarter suddenly got complicated and messed up, resulting in having to change my plans completely. I’m not good with sudden change, so really for the last four days there has not been a lot of happy going on. But today I am officially on break. This quarter has been so long and has seemed to drag by. I woke up this morning and wondered for a nanosecond what work I needed to do this weekend. Then I remembered I don’t have to do any work to do. Here’s to an upcoming week of reading for fun, long and (hopefully) sunshine filled walks, video games, and relaxing. Now if only the weather would cooperate and be spring-like.
