Spring Break 2011: Three Days and Counting

So… What’s everyone doing for Spring Break?

I know editorials are usually about some lofty or thought-provoking current event. But come on, we all need a break by now. And that’s exactly why we decided to take a break from the heavy, violence-laden national critiques and the sarcastic diatribes against existing institutions.

But, I ask my opening question because, frankly, I haven’t heard of any large-scale Spring Break plans. Either way, though, it’s perfectly fine. As long as you enjoy your time off. After nearly two solid months of school, many of you have been counting down to this next week, including this writer. Now that it’s almost here, make it count. Go read a good book, catch up with old friends, make new friends, sleep for 17 hours straight (although it’s probably terribly unhealthy), party the night away and take several thousand pictures.

For those going to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, try to at least remember part of it. This next piece of advice may ruffle a few feathers; if you don’t agree or think it a very “duh” statement, feel free to ignore it. For the entirety of Spring Break: do not think about Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Oct. 3, 1887 (What).

Of course, those who have assignments or responsibilities class or organization-related, ignore this advice until those obligations have been satisfied. It’s probably going to be difficult for people staying in Tallahassee to ignore FAMU

Whatever you end up doing, make sure you do it to the fullest. Because, while we may love our excellent and caring university, sometimes it’s quite necessary to maintain some semblance of sanity.
