This week, the university I work for is on Spring Break. While I still have to go in to the office, I've had a bit of a lucky streak. Between the network down on Monday and today's snow day, I've had a bit of an impromptu break of my own. In the past two days I've cleaned my room, cleaned out my email, done laundry, watched Broadchurch, ate mac & cheese, grabbed dinner and dessert with friends, and worn pajamas through most of it.
It's been lovely. Really lovely, and I'm not looking forward to work tomorrow. But I'm grateful for the chance I've had to slow down. To relax and put things in perspective. To be somewhere safe and warm and with very few cares.
