Spring Break for Grown-Ups

I was thinking of spring break alot today. The other 2 interns that I work with (from another school) are on spring break right now, so it's been busy for me - which is a good thing. LSUHSC (my school) doesn't give a spring break, which kind of sucks. So today got me thinking what I would do if I did indeed have a spring break, and I realized how much life has changed.

The last time I actually went on vacation for Spring Break was probably about 3 or 4 years ago. Of course, we went to the beach, got trashed 5 days straight, slept very little, and well....things that go on at spring break. If I were to actually have a spring break today, I would do nothing of the sort. Spring break for me now would include relaxing in bed catching old movies and tv shows, reading shitloads of books, hanging out at the coffee shop, maybe going to some cool shops around town, and taking walks. All of that sounds wonderful. Funny how the idea of fun changes as we grow older.

I'm still very much looking forward to Mexico in May. I'm still all about getting trashed on the beach, but it's not so much getting trashed just to get trashed. Now it's more about relaxation and taking time to myself, something I've learned that I don't do very much.

I know what you mean. Although a change of scenery would be nice in addition to all of that relaxation! ;) I just wish I could AFFORD what my students do for Spring Break! I mean, I'm the one teaching THEM--shouldn't I be the one with the disposable income? *sigh* The trials of graduate school. . .

lol...remember that you teach at A&M, the school for rich spoiled kids. You should take a spring break back down here ;)

I think adults should get all the breaks that we got as kids. After all, we work harder and would enjoy them much, much more!

Looking forward to hearing about your Mexico vacation in May. I'm also looking forward to May because Mary and I are taking a week off for our anniversary. Woo-hoo!
