The first several days of my last spring break as a MAcc student were spent in Mesa, Arizona, with my dad. (One of the benefits of being in Columbus is you're always one change of planes from any decently sized city in the U.S.) We flew out Friday evening and spent Saturday and Sunday afternoons at Hohokam Park, home of the Chicago Cubs spring training!
Wow! What great weather we are having for Spring Break. As a Working Professional, "Spring Break" for most is a week when you just go to work and then come back home and not head to campus for four hours. But, I hope you are all taking advantage of this wonderful weather after hours.
Ever notice yourself having a train of thought due to a recurring theme manifesting itself in your life events? No? Well then maybe you should pay closer attention. Last we spoke, I just arrived in Peru and promised to provide you an update with pictures. I'm not one to disappoint . . . I just didn't realize there would be such an enormous lapse between posts. Well, as they say: "Time flies when you're having fun." Personally, I prefer: "Life happens when you're making other plans."
Ah, spring quarter. How quickly you have arrived. When you are smiling and nodding through orientation, spring quarter could be 10 years away. You're sure it will be forever before you finish two quarters and make it to the last lap of the year. And yet, here we are.
You'll forgive me if I'm a bit short with this entry. You see, I'm on vacation and I intend it to be "leisure time away from work devoted to rest or pleasure" (thank you wordnetweb). To be honest, this has been a rather heterodox spring break for me. I've always been one to work hard and play hard, but there is probably something to say about simply giving yourself time to relax. Over the past several years, I've transitioned into an adult life--arguable I know--that has taught me the virtues of having a good work ethic.
