Enjoying Vacation


Nothing like a little time away from school to kick back and relax. I have been very busy doing everything that needs to be done so I can sit back and relax for the end of vacation. I corrected papers from school, made up my smartboards for the next two weeks, did housework and went to dentist appointments. Now time to have some fun. I have been watching some very exciting playoff games (Bruins and Celtics) and tonight I am going to (hopefully) an exciting Red Sox game. That is if it doesn't get rained out. The only thing I haven't done this vacation is read. Well, there is always tomorrow. I hope everyone else on vacation is finding time to have fun.

Vacation has been great! Today's Friday, and I have yet to read an entire book, write a paper, study for a test, write a dialogue...the list goes on! Oh well!

Mrs. Taylor said...

I'm so excited. Its Sunday night so that means back to school tomorrow.Yippee! I might be a little tired because I have to stay up and watch the RedSox sweep the Yankees.

BMCK said...

I know Mrs. Taylor this is exciting! Last Game!!!

Chad said...

Kevin's right. I saved all my work until the end of the vacation week, and now i'm swamped... Vacation flies by!

Elise STafford said...

I read the Great Gatsby.. I didn't enjoy myself all that much but I can't really complain. Other than that, I also watched Bruins and Celtics pretty much every night. It was fantastic! And Kevin, I'm sorry for your life.

kerrin said...

Like Kevin and Chad, I saved most of my work for the last days of vacation. It wasnt as bad as I thought though. Hopefully there isn't much work to come!

Sam Phillips said...

Vacation went by pretty quick. I was kept busy with work, a research paper, The Color Purple, and some other homework. Fortunately I had some time to relax with my friends as well.

ya i agree with elise, kevin lives a tough one

Eric Ippoliti said...

Wow Chad, you're better than that. I decided to be a dork and get my work done early.

kerrin said...

I'm glad I didn't have a research paper over vacation!

katebaird said...

Like Kerrin, Kevin, and Chad I procrastinated until sunday so I really felt like I had a vacation until then. Lol. Also like Mrs. Taylor said watching the Red Sox sweep the Yankees was amazing! I am tired of losing sleep over all these Celtics overtime games too, but I still love watching them. GO BOSTON!

Elise Stafford said...

Haha! Thanks for agreeing Andrew Ethier, poor Kevin... ;)

Caroline A said...

I agree with the others who said they left all their homework until the end of vacation. I enjoyed watching the Bruins, Celtics, and Red Sox games too. It's a great time to be a Boston sports fan! :)

I was sooooo busy over vacation. I was either working, babysitting, working on my film project with my group, doing massive cleaning or going to a babyshower. I had no time. I was out of my house from 7am to about 7 pm everyday....sometime even later. Sunday finally came around and i hadnt done any of my homework...that was a fun time, haha. Then, we had school on Monday. Thank goodness i got a coffee first thing that morning or else i would have been sleeping in the back of a few classrooms.

pri! said...

I totally agree with Caroline! It is so great to be a Boston sports fan! The sports are always fun to watch!



Lucky Kate! Having having fun in the sun on her trip! :D (up til Sunday ..lol)

Aaron said...

Now that this vacaton is over I cannot wait untilsummer. Like just about everyoine else I saved all my work for the last day or two. Not fun. But, its over everything is in and now we get to go to six flags! I can't believe its already here.

pete danko said...

The one thing I miss about vacation is definitely the sleep. Having to wake up at 6 A.M. every single morning makes me feel like a zombie after sleeping until 9 or 10 all vacation.

pete danko said...

Oh, and about homework... I saved all my homework until the typical sunday night..bad idea

Joe C said...

i also agree with Kevin. i planned to get all my work done early but that never really happened. it ended up staying up all night on sun doing all of it. but thats wat i get for procrastinating

Dean Kennedy said...

i dont remember when i saved my homework to. i think it was sunday morning

Patrick said...

I spent just about my whole vacation in Florida but i did get my homework done on the ride home so i didnt have to do it the one day i had at home.

liz f. said...

i totally agree. i always plan on getting my homework done early but that never happens

Erica Pundt said...

The best part about vacation for me was catching up with some friends that I haven't gotten to hang out with because of my busy schedule. I think everyone gets cursed with a little procrastination over any vacation. So i have to agree with Pete, most of my homework was saved for Sunday.

marier said...

I wish I had a relaxing vacation like you Mrs. Taylor :( I was in Georgia all week which would have been fun if it wasn't rainy the whole time I was there. I went to a lot of places with my family but I got a little homesick. Haha I agree with Liz that I plan to do my homework the first weekend of vacation but I never follow through because I don't feel like it. It's supposed to be vacation after all! No school work haha

Nicolettes said...

vacation was awesomeeee! i went to North carolina and Florida to look at colleges! And I got to spend two days at Daytona Beach! :D only 28 school days untill Summer!!

Nicolettes said...

and kevin, i also saved my work till sunday night, and i had 5 days of makeup work which was great!

Anonymous said...

Like Chad, I saved all my work for the last day of vacation, but atleast I got to relax all week. You'd think I'd have learned my lesson about procrastination by now, but I haven't!! Sometimes you just need a break from it all.

Over vacation i did not have too much homework but i had alot of work i was going to miss once i went to California. Also i had to work alot, but luckly i had some time to hang out with friends.

JessQuintanilha said...

My vacation was great! I prepared to go to California and then left not soon after. It was a great experience and I'm so glad I went and had vacation to get ready for it. I had a lot to do over vacation so I didn't rest much but I had a chance to catch up on a lot of things I needed to do. I hope everyone else had a great vacation too! (:

Joe Petrelli said...

What even happened? I don't remember that vacation! oof...

colleenoneil said...

April Vacation was so stressful and filled with work im so happy to get through these last few days of finals and finally have summer vacation to finally relax! :D

Julia Ariola said...

Vacations are so nice! but I've noticed this year that I have so much homework and projects to do. And I agree with Kevin that it always ends up being Friday too fast and I never have any of the work done.

Olivia said...

I love playoff season. It's so much fun.

Connor said...

I love school vacations. They are perfect for relaxing!

Olivia said...
