The transition from school absolutely killing me the last week, to hibernating for a week in the comfort of my basement with a friend, and now working a 9-some undetermined time job has been quite…smooth. A week, I believe, is an adequate amount of time to recover from a grueling term but any more and I become a sloth. I am a firm believer that summer break and winter break are necessary, but not for students to hang out at home an entire summer or winter, no. I think it is a time to finally shift our focus on independent projects or get started on that idea that you have been pondering for the past few months, whatever it may be. Personally, I have had a few ideas floating through my head that I have been eager to get started with or continue. Summers as a child seemed so empty, but now as time seems to be escaping me as I transition into adult hood, I wish I had more of it to pursue my interests. Despite how upsetting this might sound, this feeling is positive to me. Knowing what I want to spend the precious time I have on is certainly positive in my eyes.
