Winter Break Blues

Since the winter of 2009 when I started college, I’ve found breaks to be the worst part of my college experience. They are boring, monotonous, and worst of all lonely. To get by this winter I’ve been working as much as I can and watching a lot of Netflix.

I’ve really enjoyed Merlin, and got through it far too quickly. I also finished Once Upon a Time. All things considered, it’s been a very peaceful break.

My goals remain oriented towards finishing my senior project (40 pages of short stories), and reading a number of science fiction novels to prep for my history thesis. While this should be the most exciting academic part of my college experience it has been really hard to get going the motivation necessary to delve into intellectual pursuits.

Ah, well, a few weeks remain and worst case scenario I get to relax and enjoy watching the snow fall.
