The benefit to teaching in a quarter system is that I have a break that spans the month of December. During this time, I leave the frozen tundra a.k.a the Midwest and fly (technically drive) south to FL.
I vowed that over the break I was going to stay close to home and spend as much time with family/friends as possible. With the exception of not visiting some key people, I made the most of my trip and found myself extremely relaxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
Highlights of the Winter Break adventure included a trip to South Florida (with an amazing drive on A1A north)
Fun with my bro at Universal Studios – a perfect day with minimal lines and great weather (Thanks Mari!)
An creative evening with friends
An overall relaxing time at home with the Rubes
