Glorious Winter Break

Oh glorious winter break, we students sing your songs with praise.

Winter break means you are survivor. Finals have officially breached your sanity and wrecked mayhem in your life, but now you can return to the land of the living.

Winter break means, well, a break. At least it should be if you’re not running yourself ragged, catching up with old high school friends, going out to live it up after finals, binging all of your Netflix favorites, and visiting the movie theater. #forceawakens

Winter break means a time to burn off all that food. During your mental marathon of finals week, you totally binged, either on Cheetos and Sprite or Kale Chips and Kombucha. During that week of darkness you promised yourself you would make it all up during your free time over the break. One week into break, you are still heartily enjoying Mum and Grandmum’s home cooked meals. You decide that you are saving the promise to “hit the gym daily” for your #2016 New Year’s Resolutions.

Winter break means three weeks of stuff to pack. You just got settled into your place for fall. You figured out where everything lives, or something like that. Suddenly, you caused a major upheaval to pack for your vacation. So you left your place in a mess and a headache. Don’t start thinking about the struggle of cleaning the disaster you left behind and how you need to find a place for all of the new crap you will probably bring back from the vacation.

Winter break means family time. Don’t forget #holidays = #family . The best of times or the worst of times? Well that depends…


Before school begins again…
