Spring Break..What Spring Break?

I wish I could go somewhere like this on spring break. Unfortunately I’m going home. That in itself is not a success, I missed the airline deal that would have allowed me to travel round trip for about $90. Now I’m dreading the 5 hour trip on the bus.

What are some of my plans for spring break? I don’t have many actually. First and foremost I’ll try and rest up. For the last week or two I’ve been really exhausted. Not with out reason, I’ve been pushing myself in writing. Some for this blog as you saw, some for the school paper(which you better have seen) , I hosted the BSU Variety Show , attended the dinner and then there is the omnipresent school work. So February has been a whirlwind for me and even more intense the final two week of it. Now w are looking at midterm week and there is the rush to cram, finish assignments and comprehend the sections we ignored while texin or sleepin in class.

What I would like and what will happen during my time home are two very different things. I would like to go shopping ; I’m not sure if there is ever a time that I wouldn’t want to shop but I really am in need of a good shopping session. I would also like to say I’m going to go hang out with all my friends and stay out to all kinds of hours at night doing “young people things” but thats also a negatory.

In reality there are some things to look forward to. My niece Gemma is now 4 months old, a little bit more alert, she plays, she goo’s and gahs , she eats baby mush(yum) and she’s vibrant. I can’t wait to hold her and to play with her so this is my biggest joy. It’s also the main reason I DO want to go home. I also need to get some of these scholarship applications done. Scholarship essays to me , are the worst type of chore . I’d rather clean my house all day than to have to write ONE “about yourself essay”. In between all that maybe I can squeeze in a date at Chipotle, maybe hang out at Starbucks another(starbucks oh how i miss thee!) and chill in the back of the Charger at night(the Owe me tour is still a go).

So while I may not be going to any tropical island, or laying in the warm weather of some island. I do have somethings to do. And just think. I’ll have 12 days to lay in bed and dream about it. Till then ..its time to cram away
