It’s finally spring break here at my university. Apparently it’s technically winter break, which makes sense because this is “winter semester” and the break is 25 February through 4 March, but we don’t get another break this semester as it’s already halfway over, and I think most people think of our break over the holidays as “winter break”, so this just has to be spring break.
You know the clichés about going somewhere tropical and partying? That really does happen. To be honest, I’m jealous. I’ll be staying in town and working full time this week. I’m glad to do it because I need the money, but it would be nice not only not to need the money but also to have enough extra to go to Mexico with all my friends (who are not going to Mexico either, truth be told). I at least get to go home this weekend–my mom is picking me up in about an hour, I’d better pack–but it’s primarily to do taxes and my financial aid application. Super fun. xD I talked to my brother last night though and he said if I bring home an Xbox controller (he only has one that works), we can play multi-player games together. 🙂
For my class on addiction in American culture, I have to go on a tour of a pharmacology lab. I had signed up for the Wednesday evening tour, but I was absolutely exhausted from having slept only five hours two nights in a row, so I moved it to Saturday (today) at noon. Woke up at 11:20, so that’s out… Now some poor guy has to go on it all by himself. 😛 The last available time is Monday evening the day I come back from break, so that’ll be fun…
In all fairness, it actually might be pretty interesting. I’m just not keen on taking time out of my day to do something for class outside of class when it takes more effort than sitting in my room. Plus I keep having to rearrange my work schedule to make it work (the Saturday date was not originally available). The response paper for this tour is worth 10% of my grade, and grr.
Last night, I finally finished the first skein of yarn for my scarf! Only three more to go, and this one only took me two months… Pfft, I got this. It’ll be done by next winter, anyway. 😛 Betcha I can get a whole bunch done this break. Working full-time is great because it’s eight hours of your day, every day, but when you come home you don’t have to do homework. Granted, I have some Italian and Japanese homework due after break and I have to study both languages, but that can be done next weekend.
I love knitting and life is good. 🙂
