It has been too long!
First, let’s talk winter break. I went home to OklaHOMEa (like my play on words?) for all of winter break. It was relaxing. I slept, worked at my old job that I had during high school, and visited as many friends as possible.
Unfortunately, I thought a month at home was way too long. I felt like I was doing sooo little. Truthfully, I wasn’t doing very little. I was working 30 hours a week, went to doctors (wisdom teeth surgery, checked for skin cancer), ate TONS of frozen yogurt, had coffee with teachers from high school, watched a total of 11 movies, read 3 books, and bought new clothes!
This leads to my theory (not really my theory per se, probably some CC students feel the same) of time on the block plan. Winter break roughly translates into one block at CC. Right? In regards to the block, it’s fast-paced, I can barely catch my breath, I read more than 5 books for class, and I write more than 4,000 words. That’s only in 3.5 weeks. Time flashes before my eyes, and before I know it—I’ve already moved on to my next class. Thus, I hypothesize that CC exists on an alternate universe in which individuals can freely move to and from CC reality to the reality that most of the world experiences.
