I can’t wait for Christmas break to come for one reason, and that reason is to sit around and do absolutely nothing.
When it comes down to it, I probably won’t even shower most days. I’ll get dressed in my pajamas, sit on the couch with some chicken casserole in the crock pot and watch Star Wars.
Speaking of Star Wars, going to see “Rogue One” might be one of the few times I’ll attempt to do to be a functioning human. I’ll shave, shower, spritz some cologne on and get dressed to go outside. I’ll drive to Grand Rapids because that will be the best place to see the show.
My attitude of wanting to hibernate comes from not having a break since spring break. I did enjoy myself on spring break in Morocco this last time, and I may be considering going somewhere again. But this is all beside the point.
The point is I’m burned out.
When summer rolled around, I took two summer classes and worked two internships simultaneously. This equated to me writing and hustling during those months more than I ever have in my adult life. And it started May 9, and extended until Aug. 19.
Enough complaining about it, though. You aren’t reading a confession to hear me bitch about how much I work. You want to see how much of a disgusting human I can be.
Well, I have my PS4 with several games including “Battlefield 1,” “Fallout 4” and “Dark Souls 3,” along with Netflix and PlayStation Vue—the television service.
Not only is Star Wars on the docket when the movies are finally added to Netflix after Disney and the streaming service get their contract ironed out, but I’ll also be taking in large amounts of daytime television. All while eating copious amounts of ice cream.
There’s also a new series which started a few weeks ago on HBO called “Westworld.” It’s based on the 1973 film of the same name directed by Stanley Kubrick.
I might go see my family on Christmas and I might go see a few of my friends as well.
Who knows? I might even gain back a couple pounds I lost while taking 17 credits, all in the classroom, during this fall semester.
Make no mistake though, I’ll be trying as hard as I can to be as lazy as possible this holiday season.
I simply can’t wait to be a sloth on the couch.
