It's been a week of no school now, and the thought of going back depresses me extremely now. It feels as though a lot longer has passed since I was forced into my Chemistry class, so much has happened, and I feel as if I've grown up a little bit since then.If you've read my other blog, you'll know about the deaths that occurred in my community. Since then it's been extremely heavy around my friends, as we all knew one of those that died and we're good friends with his cousins. Thankfully, though, that weight is slowly lifting away, and soon we'll be able to move on with our lives and smile happily again.
But that's besides the point of this post. The point of this post is why this past week was a much needed break from the drudgery of high school. I'm happy to say that besides work and swimming I did absolutely nothing. I don't even think I had three meals a day, more like a smattering of small meals that may or may not have been healthy. I had to time to hang out with friends, forget about classes and the people that irritate me. I sort of had this going on:I read some manga (ohhh yes, I read that cartoon stuff, and it never fails to crack me up and make me smile), some books, watched some movies, and basically truly smiled and truly laughed more than I have since school began. (And this is including a funeral, yeah it's been that rare) I saw my friends and my family multiple times through out and slept whenever I wanted to. Basically, I was living in utter bliss of relaxation and happiness.
Of course, I know I have to go back to school tomorrow. And life must go on, because even living on a cloud of school breaks will get old if I choose to continue on it. But remember taking a nice, long, well deserved break will do more for the body and soul than taking none at all. So, for all you who have been slaving away all year, take a break! Go to a spa, take a soothing bath, and take the time to do something that's truly enjoyable, whether it's beneficial or not.
