I want more summer vacation

I'm so not ready to go back to school. We such a short break from school, just barely three weeks. I know, I know, I've gone on and on about how great year around school is and I am officially recanting that testimony. I was full oh phooey.

My problem is this: I've never really taken the summer off before even when I had it off. I've either taught summer school or waited tables or did some other part time work to make ends meet. I've never really just been off. (Off my rocker, maybe, but never on vacation)

This July, since it was so short of a vacation, I just decided to not do anything except be a bum.

And you know what I learned from this experience? Summer vacations are awesome! Being a bum (with a tiny paycheck) is even awesome-r!

When I grow up and am a real teacher I am not going to work in the summer. I'm going to be a lady of leisure and continue this layabout gig. It's the best one I've ever had.

I second that emotion. Even when you tell yourself "I could use the extra money," the time off to recharge your soul is worth it. I'll be pulling for you while you finish up those courses.

(Psst..... Retirement=mucho layabout)

Bragger- I decided unless it's between me and the poorhouse, I will not work a summer again after i get my teaching license. (Tho, the other exception is "will work for money to spend a month or two in Europe") And I wish I could retire.... now!
