A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal. -Oscar Wilde

Apparently it's spring break.

I have never exactly been excited about spring break. I graduated from high school before it was deemed necessary to give students a whole week off. In college, I could never afford to do anything except work more hours. Working in the academe, it was actually a pain because my hours changed dramatically for a single week and I got dropped into the intradepartmental conflicts that I studiously avoided as an off-shift worker-- while some staff also took a break. Now with my master's, I still can't afford to do anything except work. Do we notice a trend here? A trend of doing not a damn thing, while my fellow students went home (home? I am home) to parental fussing or blew enough cash to cover two months' rent on a trip to some exotic locale for the sole purpose of drinking.

The joy of being poor. I'm told it's a real character builder, but I think I have plenty enough character thankyouverymuch.
