I have been on a break since Monday (haha private school pedagogues!!) and it has been very nice. Although I started the break (and Valentine's Day) sick, I have since gotten better and have been able to sleep late (except today when I had to move my car due to street cleaning rules and, apparently, you get towed if you don't move it, see Tuesday), catch up a little in GTAIV, do some grading, and catch up on TV.
Breaks are great, if utilized properly. You hate to get into that bored groove where you cannot get anything productive done and you feel like a complete waste. Thankfully, I have been able to avoid that this break. We'll see how the rest of it goes.
