For me, I’ll be driving down to Tennessee to spend the holiday with my small family and girlfriend in a cabin by a lake – enjoying the peace and solitude that mountain air has to offer. Most of our class seems to be headed home for the holiday – but those from other countries are taking the opportunity to see more of America. Students are taking their families to San Francisco, road-tripping New England’s coast, checking out all the museums of Chicago or evening keeping in the career-search mind-set and interviewing with a variety of companies. Without classes, the plate is wide open for how you choose to spend your time.
My goals for the week: complete a puzzle, go to a dentist appointment, cook my first batch of sweet potatoes, sleep for 12 hours. Potentially I’ll read some Economics – but only potentially. Oh, and maybe see Harry Potter 7 – I’ll have to order tickets ahead of time though.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with you and yours and I’ll see you on the other side when classes resume for two weeks and then finals. Enojy!
