The February Blues
T-9 class days till March Break. An entire month (for us seniors that is) of sleeping, eating, huddling by the fire, visiting colleges, and generally waiting for spring to come (finally!). But separating us and this coming month of bliss are nine whole schools days. For most, that includes at least 5 tests, a couple presentations, a lab report, maybe an essay or two, turning in all overdue work, and not nearly enough, if any, free time. Besides class work, we’ve been pounded with snow up here in the north and the student consensus is that winter needs to over, ASAP. As the anticipation for vacation and the various four points builds, these nine days seem like an eternity. So given these conditions, I asked students and faculty their best way to get over, or manage, the February Blues.
Watching Scandal every Thursday night
Grilled cheeses sandwiches with tomato soup
Mac n cheese
Planning adventures for the spring
Sleeping and eating
Going to the gym
Complaining about anything
A chocolate mocha from DiCocoa’s
Watching youtube videos of cats falling
Taking naps even if it means sacrificing homework to do it
Thinking about summer, dreaming about summer
Eating a lot of m&m’s
Pretending that it’s spring. This works well for a class on the third floor because then you can’t quite see the snow
Going skiing and pretending I’m not cold
Binge watching tv
I don’t have February Blues, I just ski race.
Dress Down Day
NO FORMAL DINNER!
Half off candy at Rite Aid
Till next week,
