School is back in session…You know what that means. Winter break is over. I will pause here to give you a moment to silently excuse yourself to go cry in your favorite corner of the library. In all seriousness, I was very thankful for the pretty lengthy break. During the momentary escape from the Socratic method, I was able to spend some time with family, friends, and my pillow. Honestly, I think that I probably averaged between 8-10 hours of sleep each night and it was glorious.
As a fairly recent LA transplant, I found it pretty relaxing to escape the city for a few days and return to small town life in Alabama. While there, I saw some old friends that I have not seen in years and celebrated the holidays with loved ones. On a more personal note, my brother proposed to his girlfriend. Thankfully, she accepted and I should have a new sister-in-law soon! Although spending a little while in my home town was great, I could not be happier to be back in California where the sun is (usually) shining, the beaches are always beautiful, and there is always something to do.
Here’s to 2017. May this year be full of new friendships, summer externship offers, and better grades for all!
