Question of the Week: August 30th, 2016.

How are you winding down the summer?ย 

I am in that phase where the new university semester will start soon, but I don’t want to check the calendar and figure out exactly when the first day of classes is. I still have time! I keep telling myself. I just got off of an eight day vacation and easing back into work is a process. Already I have forgotten where all my notes are stored on my computer and why, no matter the length of a paper, an outline is still important. Maybe I’ll take my new relaxed work ethic into the next year. Even if I’m not as diligent, there’s something kind of liberating about finally slowing down to enjoy the work and not getting worked up over deadlines.

Are you still on summer mode like me or are you already anticipating the shorter days and colder nights?

  1. I’m currently taking a little vacation to visit family, since my summer job is over and I don’t start TA training until mid-September. Trying not to think too much about all the work I’ll be going back to! This is the first real vacation I’ve had in a while.

    I am winding down the summer by feeling like an old geezer as I watch my non-graduated friends head back to class ๐Ÿ˜›

    I wish I were on holidays. =_=
    I’m nearly 3/4 of the way through the Uni year and desperately in need of a break. Looking forward to a month or so of nice weather before we complete the transition from cold to unbearably hot. ^_^””
