Break Away

MSU News - March 11, 2015 - 1:58pm
Finally! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and it's almost 60 degrees warmer than the subzero temperatures from last week. We might have finally kicked old man winter back where he belongs. Which is a good thing since it's officially spring break here on campus. I mean, how can you have spring break if it doesn't feel at least a little like spring? When I was a kid, spring break meant family road trips to Disney World or Washington, D.C. or just hanging out with friends at home. When I was a senior in high school, I, and seven friends, went to Daytona Beach (I'm still not sure why our parents ever consented, but I know my dad reads these so I'll just leave it at that). When I was in college, because I was working full time, spring break mainly just meant a little extra time to finish assignments from school and work. When I became a parent, spring break again meant road trips to Disney World, Washington, D.C., New York and Boston. Now, since I work on campus, spring break means empty sidewalks, shorter lines and the ability to park on the second floor of the parking ramp.
