It’s been cold, gray, and rainy more than it hasn’t lately. I’ve spent far too many hours grading essays, preparing exams, and planning for next semester. I’m super behind on laundry, yet I’ve hardly left the house in the past month. Everyone at school has been passing around illnesses like candy. In a matter of days, my home country will be accepting an evil orange clown as its new leader. To say I’m done with this month/semester/season would be an understatement. It’s time to hit the reset button.
THANK GOODNESS the semester break is just around the corner. This year, I need to escape winter rather than embrace it. In less than a week, I will be trading depressing gray skies for sun, sand, mountains, and adventure.
