I don't know about you guys, but I am freaking tired!! I am so, so, so grateful for this break. I have been going to school straight for far too long. Check it out: summer term, fall/winter semester, spring/summer and now fall. Not to mention that I will soon be starting winter, doing an internship for spring/summer, and then finishing up next fall. Within this longer-than-two-year period, I will have not had more than 2 weeks of breathing room and rest from school. I finally reached my breaking point this semester, fairly early on. I just could not bring myself to do homework or study for tests. Will see evidence of this when grades are posted. To my credit, I was also working 2-3 jobs and working as an officer in the Arabic club and helping out in other ways. I finally broke.
This is why I am so grateful for this Christmas break. In a 2 week period, I have naught but 6 commitments: church, 3 days of work, Christmas, and New Years. In 2 weeks, this is all I have to do! It is going to be so marvelous!! This now means I can sleep, eat, read, and watch movies, the recipe for relaxation. Especially because there are so few people stuck in Provo, I will be mostly alone! That being said, I hope to be so bored of having nothing to do, that I will be able to jump into classes next semester, ready to go! I am taking 1 Arabic class, 1 Chinese class (yes sir, you read that right), accounting, and a handful of business classes! This semester should be a fun one. I hope the business classes aren't too bad.
Concerning work next semester, I will no longer be working at Walden, just not feasible in my scheduling. I will be working almost all day/afternoon as an Arabic 202 TA, I'll also be in class on occasion.
