Tonight is my last night at home, and as usual leaving is a bittersweet experience. I have found supreme enjoyment in sleeping a little later and avoiding stress for the last few weeks. I've also had some of my best friends within easy reach and quick access to family time. Of course, I've really missed some people from Belmont and the spontaneity that comes with living in the same building as or within a few minutes of many of my friends. I'm not begging for the homework or the 20 or so novels I'll be reading this semester, but being back in Nashville will have its perks.
The break has been good, and I feel refreshed. I won't go as far as saying I'm ready for the semester ahead, but I'm more open to it than I was a month ago.
