At 6:00 pm today, I gave up. I was done. No more energy, no more organized thoughts. My brain was a fizzled mess. Though I had a stack of paperwork teetering on the corner of my desk, a million student files to close, and a to do list longer than Santa's naughty list, I called it a day. I packed up my bag, turned out my office lights, and locked my door. I took a big sigh, acknowledged that I was leaving a ton undone, and walked out to my car. And then, just as a got to my car, I thought, I am choosing to be done. Choosing to ignore all the unfinished things, choosing to be okay with a mile long January to do list. Choosing to embrace a break. Because today, at 6:00 pm, my winter break started, and I couldn't be more thrilled. So I'm choosing to ignore things, instead shouting "hell yeah" for two weeks of no work. And that feeling is defiinitely worth ignoring a few things for!
