Dear Spring Break,
How are you? Where have you been? I have not seen you in a year. I have seen you pop up on my friends' social media pages recently, and it seems like you are having a great time these weeks, traveling the world and meeting new people. I have to admit, I have been getting a little jealous. I know that we will meet again soon, but I am impatient and excited for my time with you.
I have been fine, but it has also been a rough couple of months without you. While you have been frolicking on beaches or working hard on service trips, I have been in the library, writing lab reports and essays, and studying for my midterms. I am ashamed to admit the number of times I have been nerd bell-ed so far this semester. It seems like I have to work hard to earn you and prove that I am worthy of you.
My family misses you too. They keep asking me how many days are left until you come home, until we come home. As much as they like Thanksgiving break, winter break, and Dead Week, none of them can replace you. They have not visited them in a while anyway, and you are the only one they have the pleasure of seeing this semester. You are special.
My friends miss you too. When they become bored while studying in the library or sitting in class, they dream and gossip about you. They have been closely monitoring your social media presence, too. They remember all of the fun times we have shared this time every year for the past few years, and they cannot wait to make new memories. You are the glue that has held all of us together.
I have so much planned for when you finally get here. We will travel quite a bit, and have some vacation time to relax and unwind. We will reunite some old friend groups, and have the opportunity to all catch up on each other's lives. We will get to sleep in and lazy around the house, too. I cannot wait to spend these two weeks with you.
I am counting down the days until I will see you. I hope you have safe travels and a great time until then. I love you, and I will see you soon.
