The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Was NOT Meant to Include School

Can I just say that since returning from North Carolina I am already in vacation mode. I can't focus on school, I just don't care anymore. The last two days I have done about the equivalent of NOTHING academic. On Monday I blew off all of the reading I needed to do so Chad and I could go buy our Christmas tree and decorate it together. (This was pretty much the BEST night ever by the way! We had SOOOOOO much fun!) This may seem horrible, but I don't even feel a smidgen of guilt over this. I think it was completely worth it! Last night I cleaned our apartment and decorated instead of starting one of the 4 papers I have to write by next week...What is wrong with me? Why am I such a terrible student all of a sudden? By the time I get off work all I want to do is curl up on the couch in pajamas, sip at a steaming mug of hot cocoa, listen to Christmas carols, and gaze at our Christmas tree. For the parents reading this, do not fear- I will get back on the ball I promise. But for now I feel justified in wanting to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year, without the interruption of professor's expectations.


  1. good for you!! Don't feel's such a wonderful pleasure! And you'll get around to it, so what if it's not your most brilliant work...I just sing the word "balanced" to myself and push the guilt far, far away.

  2. I have long maintained that the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are non-productive and that we should just take them all off. From Thanksgiving to New Years should be one long vacation!

  3. THANK YOU BOTH! I am glad someone else can relate to my logic =-)
