Heading Home

By: Connor Lenahan

All that separated me from coming home this morning was an essay due at 8 AM and a psych class until noon. The second the latter finished, I made a quick sweep of my room and began home to Waverly, PA. I made the five hour trek and ended up heading directly to the Abington Heights boy’s basketball game. After watching the guys decimate Central Columbia 70-42, I finally ventured back to my house. Now I’m here, sitting with my parents, my brothers, and my dog. Everything is all right with the world right now.

As much as I love Boston, my home, every once in a while I need a bit of a break. A time to check in on the town and the people I grew up with. A time to shut my brain off from the hectic day-to-day that is my life at BU. A time to relax. That’s what it’s time for here. Today is the first day of spring break for BU. It couldn’t have come at a better time. I cannot think of a time where a rest was more needed. I just needed an opportunity to sleep and not have to worry about twelve different things for the first time in weeks. It’s finally here.

So I’m going to enjoy this. I can’t wait to be back with my friends in Boston, but for now, I’m going to have the time of my life with my friends back home. I’ll be back soon enough. This is a much needed vacation.

If you’re back home on break as well, I hope it is a relaxing, wonderful time. Enjoy it while it lasts. Let’s make this spring break a good one.
