December 18th

Winter Break, or as it is better known around here the Christmas break.

I remember when I was at school working on my degrees and the joy and relief I would feel as one by one the finals were over. Burdens lifted with every completed class.

As you reached the last final, in my head I could hear... I am free, I am free. and as I walked out to my car, I remember feeling such a sense or accomplishment. And almost feel so light and free I was actually walking on air... a little bit. And then proceeded to turn off the brain for a few weeks so that it can reboot for the next semester.

Well that same feeling enveloped me this week as I turned in my final grades... I am free, I am free. well at least for a few weeks; I love my job but I also love my breaks.
