It is officially Spring Break for all of us Full Sail’ers [Sailors? But we’re not on water… hmmmm] and I couldn’t be more excited.
A full week of no assignments, no required reading, and no lectures. Seven whole days without homework. My eyes well with tears of joy just thinking about it.
During our last break in the winter, I made all of these grand plans and attempted to schedule out every day to work on short stories, editing my novel, writing poetry, and reading a stack of books.
Yeahhhhh, I didn’t make much progress with that.
In fact, I don’t think I even opened my novel for the full two weeks we had off from school.
I ate a lot, drank a lot, danced and sang a lot, and enjoyed time with friends and family over the holidays. As much as I love writing, I didn’t think about it during the Winter Break. I just enjoyed catching up with loved ones, with my life, and with sleep, my long lost friend.
God, I love sleep.
Despite two weeks of ZERO productivity, I had no regrets when class started back up in January. I was well-rested, well-fed, and my soul was enriched. I was ready for several intense classes and prepared to sacrifice my social life, yet again, to the glorious time black hole that is school.
With the first day of Spring Break, I realize I’ve fallen into my vacation without any plans, which is absolutely unlike me. I have no objectives, nothing on the docket or my to-do list… I think I’ll keep it that way.
Optimistic that I’m going to enjoy this week to the fullest,
