I thought taking a month off from school was a wonderful idea. Since I take accelerated classes online, I had been going nonstop for nearly three years. I have to take this big exam in November so in order to prepare for it, I would use the time to study. Well, it's almost the end of October and I haven't even looked in a book at all. I went crazy with it. At first, I had so much free time that I didn't know what to do. Then I easily started finding things to do. Watch TV, play games online, talk on the phone, shop, play the Playstation with my kid, cook, chit chat at work, sleep in late/go to bed early, hang out with friends, date! Yes date. LOL
Even though my time off didn't go as planned, I discovered that there is a whole new world out there when you don't have to stay glued to a computer keyboard or have your head stuck in a book studying. I really don't remember it being like this when I got my first undergrad degree. Anyway, I can't wait to graduate...and then it's off to grad school...and then it all starts again.
