You know what I love?

I LOVE that ice storm we recently had.

I also LOVE that snow storm that's still passing through. Why?

I don't have school.

UNTIL THE FIFTH! Woo! That means I'm having a winter vacation that's 25 days long. 25 days, people!

Careful, man.  I still remembering being in fifth or sixth grade in VA during the Blizzard of '96, and we missed so much time we started having to stay LONGER some days and were starting to get assigned homework while we were at home!  We even added a few days to the end of the school year!  'Twas lame.

Well, that's Virginia. Massachusetts is used to this sort of thing. We work five days into the year already and whatever else we miss we make up at the end of the year. A bunch of those days are weekend days, too, so it's not that much.

This previous and last Summer I have had little to know Vacation.  That's what I get for slacking off during the year.

One of my favorite parts of college is that winter break runs from Dec 12th to Jan 20th. The way it should be.

I remember when I still lived in Massachusetts, one year (1996) we missed a ton of school (not all of it was because of snow-storms either. The stars must have aligned to royally screw me over) and it all had to be made up in June. We didn't get out until July 2nd. Well, that was year that I moved down here to Tex-sucks. Thing about Texas is, school starts in August (early August too) compared to the September up there.

Net result: I got one goddamn month of Summer vacation.

Glad you approve, Shadow. For what I spent on it, it should impress.

The hell? You psychic? I don't think I recall expressing my approval yet, seeing as I was a bit caught up with whether or not that was you in RL holding the flash gun. Regardless, yes, I do approve.

The office closing early on Friday due to the weather!

Finals and midterms being done (last week).

The schools I went to while growing up started with the first or beginning of the second week of September and ended mid June.

The Uni that I go to now goes from beginning of second week of September to Dec 17th (including finals weeks) and beginning of second week of January to April 30th ...with about 2/3s of April for exams...overall not too bad since May thru August is time off...(from school anyway)

Heh, I got out of school last Friday (the 19th). The only problem is that the mayhem followed me home.

Ahh. The huge bold "OH SHIT" threw me off.  :lol:
