Days used for healing dreams and dancing, the holiday ended so soon. Everyone has turned their attention back to the long list of projects to complete before break. I have accrued a list of magic realism novels to read from a friend, and I am eager to finish schoolwork so I can be free to wander.

Awake and not oppressed for the first time all semester, I have slowly risen and begun sprinting again. Two more weeks of labor and busy work, and then I will start long hours on my application.
