I woke up today and realized today is my first day of adulthood.
But John, you’ve been out of college and in the real world for almost 3 years now.
That is true imaginary blog voice. But today is different.
Because it’s Holy Thursday!
True…but that’s not it.
Would you please stop interrupting so I can finish?
But then this blog post would be depressing. I’m here to cheer things up!
Hey look over there! What’s that?
RED BALL! WHEE!!!!
And people say ADD was a bad thing.
Today is the first time since kindergarten that I do not have a spring break. After 19 consecutive years of having spring break, I am no longer a carefree student child. I am now an adult.
17 years of schooling and 2 years of teaching later, I never realized how special those school breaks were until today. For the past 3 years, I traveled during spring break (Paris, Madison, St. Louis, Dallas, Boston and Washington D.C.). This year, I will not be spending that time away, but instead I’ll be in a cubicle. Welcome to the first day of the rest of my life.
However, I cannot help but wonder, where I would be right now if I still had spring break. Where would you go?
