Currently I am on winter break! While I have a hard time just relaxing and taking it easy, I have been doing my best to spend as much time with family as possible. As I am a senior, this will likely be my last long chunk of time off, and I am trying to enjoy it while I have it!
Last summer I was talking to someone who had graduated a few years prior, and she emphasized how she missed winter break the most. Since pretty much everything winds down around the holidays, it’s a great time to hang out with family and get some rest. Thinking about what she has said has made me appreciate this time a lot more. My birthday is also around the holidays, so overall it has always been a time of rest and celebration. I’m going to do my best even when I do start working to set aside time off to make my own mini “winter break”.
As I get ready to start my last semester at FIT, I’m reminded how great my time has been. As excited as I am to be done, I will definitely miss the little perks of being a student. Seeing my friends in class every week, having access to the sewing labs and other resources, the student discounts, the knowledgable professors, the interesting coursework. It has been a great three and a half years, and hopefully this last half is just a cherry on top.
What’s your favorite time of year?
