Wake Tech is having fall break—yesterday was the last day of classes until next Wednesday. As our Business Finance instructor reminded us yesterday.

“Woo hoo!” I exclaimed.

“I’ll try not to take that woo hoo personally,” she added, handing us our tests.

She gave us take-home tests to be done over the holiday. As with the extra credit, the take-home is an attempt to help the students who didn’t do well on the first two tests. We’re not allowed to help each other, but we can use our books and our notes, and we’ve got six days to do it. I can’t imagine any excuse to do poorly on this test.

I’ve discovered something in recent years, though. I don’t really like vacations. I don’t know what to do with all that free time—other than all the stupid chores that have piled up, which I don’t really want to do.

The Alpha Geek is rambling around at loose ends today as well. He took the week off so he could make a final push to get his pilot’s license, and has been flying every day in preparation for his check ride. But today the weather isn’t cooperating, so he doesn’t know what to do with himself, either.

I’m about to go upstairs and do my take-home test. That should fill up an hour.
