I recently went to a lovely Christmas lunch with my coworkers from my assistantship. While at lunch, they encouraged me to take the five weeks off school to relax and enjoy myself. I mentioned to them that relaxation was not something I do well. Anyone who knows me knows that this is the case. I promised them I would "work on relaxing" over break, and they marveled at the idea of someone needing to work harder on relaxing. Kind of oxy-moronish. Anywho, that's what I am doing. Yesterday, I finished Christmas cards, wrapped gifts, and did laundry. Today will include more cleaning and reading. My goal is to have everything so together by next week that I have no choice other than to relax. We'll see if that happens.
Any suggestions for good books or ways to lazily occupy time are requested.
Here's to relaxation.
