Being a graduate student is a full-time occupation for me. I love it — the education, my classmates, the theory, practice, readings and reflections. But, every once in a while, it is nice to escape for a day (or several) and put it all behind you.
That’s what I did this weekend. Last Wednesday I tweeted: “I will not be doing any more homework tonight. Or tomorrow. Or Friday. take that #libraryschool!!” And now it is Monday. I spent the entire weekend enjoying the company of friends and reading for fun and watching movies and going for walks. I’m ready for this week — I’ll be returning to the classroom and my readings with clear eyes. I need to do this more often. Live a more balanced life.
