So I have a break from school for about a week. Now what? Should I run away to Canada? Or maybe sleep? Not sure yet, but the Canada sounds fun the only question of that is would I come back?

So most likely I will just stay here, read my bible, read my new book (cause the old one failed), read a textbook (if I must), work on an art project, and apply for internships. Oh internships.

Well we will soon see what actually transpires this break.



Finals are almost over. I can breath again. This awful semester is over. So the question is now what?

I am excited to read a book on a plane. I am excited to see my family again. I am excited to not think about electricity, heat, sets, flams, entropy, Amperian loops, chord progressions, relations, or Boltzmann factors.

Rest is a brilliant thing that can allow you to start again. My goal is to finish the book I started at the beginning of the semester, start Lord of the Rings, and enjoy people again. A side goal will be to experience silence again. College is nice, but with so many people there is never a moment that you are purely alone and can enjoy silence.

After this rest it is off to enjoy old friends, and new friends in the great big city of New York. I am looking forward to this amazing time of city life. (Sadly I am in a town that is neither city nor the country.)

After this break, it is back to school for an amazing month long class on digital photography. (Any amazing shots will get published somewhere: here, FB, Flicker?) Also January should bring a time to reconnect with friends from school since we will all be taking fairly easy months. (Oh yeah, and I will try to independently get ahead on understanding Maxwell’s crazy discoveries about light.)

I can’t wait to have rest.


I like to be in control. I know that there are very few things that I can control. In high school I would have no idea what to do when I had to change my plans. I would flip out if I did not know what I was doing next.

Luckily I grew (or else College would have killed me). Even though I have learned a lot on how to let go, I still like my plans. I have had many grand plans lately (like going to be early, or not procrastinate my work). These plans have failed, and failed miserably. I always seem to have some urgent thing come up. They have all had very positive outcomes but they have come out of nowhere with no warning and need my attention NOW! This has been extremely hard.

Now I will always help out, but right now I want a break. It is hard to get my personal time (especially as an introvert who loves to be with people) and try to fix the crises brought on by this world. So with Thanksgiving around the corner and just a couple small assignments to do for school I am looking forward to some time with my phone off, a warm beverage in my hand, and either good book in the other hand, or good friends near. Hopefully nothing jumping in and interrupts this plan.
