It doesn't feel like a semester break when I have another two (more like four, if you count in the History presentations on Scientific Revolution and French Revolution) heavy assignments to complete by the week's end. No, I went straight to business after the last day of class; we started our break with at around six separate assignments.
Yes, you heard that right. My classmate's absolutely correct when he said that those two subjects would involve a gargantuan amount of assignments being thrown at us.
There was such a plan to spend the break at Taipei but it won't be a relaxing vacation with the assignments, right? Trust me; even as I'm drafting this post, half of my mind is concentrating on the remaining assignments. My idea of a holiday would be the temporary freedom from the worldly worries and suffused my soul with the fresh, welcoming air of Taichung.
Still, in the wake of the workload, I ensured that I had cocooned myself at home between the four walls and the idiot box.
I lolled in my favorite haunt.
I had my locks trimmed shorter.
I slept until ten in the morning.
I caught up on past episodes of NCIS.
I yelled my heart to this song until my vocal cords cracked.
I gobbled my way around the kitchen.
Nothing could beat that, not by a million miles. Okay, I admit, the last one is definitely an exaggeration. I'm no longer ransacking the fridge for food every couple of hours.
And lastly, I dreamed of That Latte Plate some weeks ago.
I'll survive unscathed, and until my next post, I'm off to sink my face into the tub of green tea ice-cream while the assignments are being done at my own pace.
