Today is the first official day of my last spring break ever. And I’m wishing for an ocean miracle.
I realized this morning, the thing I never did that I always wanted to do: a real spring break. I’ve went on trips over break, but never to some awesome beach vacation where I could sip a margarita and lay in the sun all day. That sounds just about perfect right now.
The truth is, I now have to fit a trip to Washington DC into my already packed last 76 days of law school, and there’s just no time for any real spring break. I will spend this break finishing my bar application, researching how to improve the tax policy surrounding childcare in this country, and learning all about the statutes that govern Corporations. If that sounds like a completely disheartening waste of a break to you too, then we’re on the same page.
Especially because I’m longing for an ocean. And sunlight. And warmth. The only nature I’ve seen in the past few months is gray, and slushy. And I think my soul could benefit from some ocean waves crashing on my toes.
I’m going to have to settle for daydreams and changing my desktop to pictures of places where I breathed in salty sea air and smiled in the sunlight. Like Taormina, Sicily.
But the one bright side of this break, finally a little time to carve out for some long lost friends. I’m off to brunch with someone who always brings a little sunlight into my life. :) And I stopped at the bookstore yesterday and got a new fabulous read that I’m halfway through.
It’s all about the little things this break.
