Summer After Spring 2008 Semester
It has been exactly 10 days since my last final, and the start of my summer. Honestly, it feels like its been a few months since my last final. It feels like this because I've been working a lot already... and being lazy at home. I've made a few plans for the summer already, which includes finding a new job - most particularly a physical therapy aide job or anything along the lines, coaching my baseball team to the playoffs (we're in 3rd place), continuing my UML blog, study for my certification for the strength and conditioning specialist, and taking a trip somewhere. While it seems like I'm going to be very busy, my definite goal is to relax, take it easy, and spend some time with my family and friends. I'm going to spend some time playing my guitar, record some music, try to start an art piece, spend some time at the beach, and just enjoy nature with hiking or mountain biking.
Remember, the summer time doesn't mean your learning ends for 3 months. If you are "behind" with classes (like a lack of General Education credits) or you want lessen the load of your semester, you can take one or two summer classes. Last summer, I took Human Biochemistry for the whole month of June, so I can lessen my load for the fall. Sure, the issue of commuting to campus, such as high gas prices, or the urge to just sit in the beach may be an obstacle, but I think that its worthwhile. Maybe its just me, but summer classes are more laidback and less stresful. I think this is so, because I didn't have to take my normal class-load (5 classes), and I had more time to study.
High schoolers, please don't look at summer classes as "summer school." It's not a punishment! It is a great way to stay on track for graduation, or even get a head start!
Well, the Celtics Game 6 game is distracting me right now - the current score is 74 - 74 in the 4th quarter with 5:25 to go. Pierce just got fouled with a 2 pointer. He has a chance to give the Celts a one point lead... okay I better stop now before I end up writing a whole blog about the game!!
Have a good day!
