On vacations, or the troubling lack thereof.
I admit it, I grumble about school quite a bit more than is absolutely necessary but today it hit me: no more summer, spring, winter vacations. I've been a student or teacher most of my life.. so such holidays are a given to me. Its strange to know I'll soon be entering a world where my summers won't be mine to scrapbook, discover new recipes, dust daily, and read oodles of books to my hearts content. Two weeks vacation?? How do y'all do it!?! For real, how do you do it? I've heard the US is one of the least vacation friendly countries in the Western hemisphere. My English friends say they'd take 4-6 week vacations without anyone batting an eye. Two weeks doesnt seem like nearly enough time. After a lifetime of a healthy vacation schedule I can't help but wonder how I can possibly get used to such a schedule? Is the transition to having only two weeks of vacation hard to get used to? Do you ever get used to it?
