It's been a long year, and I am very ready for a break. No alarm clock (except Bird), I can stay in my jammies till noon if I want to, time to catch up on the huge stack of books to read.... fantastic!!
This won't exactly be a peaceful summer (is any summer peaceful once you have kids?) as I have new textbooks & new classes to teach next year. So I will be spending some 'quality' time with my school stuff, but it's so much easier to do my job when there aren't any students around! Besides, chemistry by the pool is far more fun than chemistry at my desk!
