Well, you’ve done it. You’ve finished the semester! Can I just say that you deserve some time away from campus? We’ll miss you, of course, but at least you get to relax and spend time however you want.
TV commercials and songs on the radio keep telling me that it’s the most wonderful time of the year. There are tragedies happening throughout the world (is it just me, or does it seem like crime is up a lot this year?), which makes it hard to believe, but that only emphasizes how important it is to be with those we love. The holiday season — even as materialistic as it can be at times — has a way of reminding us of what’s really important. Family. Friends. Hope. Happiness. Simple everyday blessings like good food and a warm place to sleep.
Please have a wonderful and safe break, and know that we look forward to seeing you (well-rested and happy) in the new year!
