I’m officially on winter break!
This makes me joyful. While the past few months have been eye-opening, difficult, wonderful, mind-expanding, glorious, interesting, intense and any other number of adjectives – while all this is true, it’s also true that I’m not sorry that my first semester in college is officially over. I’m through the first hump now, and I know more of what I can do, what’s expected of me and how well I can perform. I’m pleased with my studies – rather, I’m ecstatic about them. I never thought that I could truly enjoy intense studying as much as I did – that is, I always knew that I’d enjoy learning new things in college, but my satisfaction and pleasure in it in reality exceeded my wildest dreams.
Still, I’m happy that I have a break now. I have almost a month to air out my brain a little and go back to school feeling refreshed and eager again. I truly find it rather astonishing how much knowledge I feel I’ve gained over the past months, as well as how much work I’ve done. My mind still reels at the notion that I wrote somewhere around 150 pages throughout the past three-and-a-half months.
Now that I’m back, I’m going to be kicking myself back into my proper writing/blogging regime. I miss the creative side of my brain and intend to use it again during the break I have. This shouldn’t be too difficult a task, if only because my recently acquired insomnia causes me to lie in bed for hours thinking about characters and things I want to write about. Next post should finally be something more than a useless, silly ramble like this!

Ramble on, Em! It is so good to have you back with us again. We are equally happy that you’re dong well in college and enthusiastic about your studies. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could all show up at your graduation and yell our support in unison as you step up to receive your diploma!
yay, enjoy your break 🙂
looking forward to reading more entries x
I’m so glad your back and getting a little breather. I’ve sure missed you but know this is a very important time for you. Are you going home for this break or staying in the US? Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or whatever it is that you celebrate. Happy New Year. I think that’s one we all say.
I forgot to say I’m looking forward to some more of your stories.
I hope that you have a wonderful winter break! Hopefully the whole flying home thing goes well and you don’t have any delayed flights or long lines 🙂
