March break means different things depending on the person. For some, it’s a chance to explore new interests. For others it’s a chance to go out on a trip. According to the school board, it’s apparently a time to work even harder and give students more assignments. But, no matter what we see it as, I think the majority of us waste it… Big time.
You see, March break lasts for only one week, and what can you do in one week? Go out, hang with friends, catch up on the dramatic loss of sleep you’ve experienced because of school… But then it’s over. What sucks even more is that some people can’t even go out because they work so much! You have no idea how many people I know who told me that their break was composed of nothing but working at their job. There’s nothing wrong with that!!! I just think that it means that their break wasn’t really a break.
On top of that, you end up on Sunday night having to catch up on every assignment your teachers gave you! There goes my sleep, again!
So maybe March break wasn’t as long as we wanted it to be, and maybe, for the next few days, a lot of us will be trying to make up for the time we lost. In the end, remember that half the semester is over! That means we are that much closer to being done and having summer break, and honestly, a few months off is a thousand times better than a week. So, let’s catch up and work procrastinators! No time to waste with midterms right around the corner!
