It seems to mean more things than one.
It's a break from the friends who are now scattered all over the country.
It's a break from researching and making sure that you are citing things correctly.
It's a break from shopping for food and worrying about how to get to the store without a car.
It's a break from quiet alone time.
It's a break from bugs, humidity and heat.
It's a break from all of the habits you got into during the school year.
That's why I haven't been writing I suppose. That and I just barely unpacked my laptop and got a new battery for it. Never fear I shall be better now...at least if I have anything of use to report.
