The Stresses of Break

When you just want to be able to rest but can't

We have all gone away and now returned back to school. I feel that, in a sense, many things haven't changed, but that's not really the case. Truth be told, things have changed in crazy and dramatic ways. When I got back to college I faced a familiar problem. I would ask people how break was and the answer would come, "It was good," and that is where everything ends. Then they ask me how my break went and I can't help but feel my heart drop. I want to say, "Oh yeah, it was all nice and dandy." But honestly, my break was horrible. I had to do things over my break that stretched me to new limits; I cried, I got angry and snapped and said some things that I shouldn't have. These are things that, if they ever happen to me, happen on such a rare occasion, and some of the things are completely new. I went to a bunch of places: Charleston in South Carolina, then Atlanta, then Brevard in North Carolina, then I came home and finally I went to Buffalo for the end of my break. By the time I went to Buffalo, things had just gotten out of hand and I needed to get away from home to truly be able to rest.

First, we went to see my aunt, as a whole family. After a six-hour drive to Charleston, West Virginia, we reached my aunt's house. It was a fairly uneventful night. The next day my uncle took us on a tour of the city, showing us the old houses and old city buildings. Later that day, my family went to a fort which had helped to mount an attack on Fort Sumner. The fort was really interesting and we saw a dolphin swimming in the waves of the bay. That night, we had a small fire with my aunt and uncle, and things unraveled. First I had to stop someone from running away, then there was a trip to the ER, and finally, someone was put in long-term care at the hospital. From all this, I had to go eventually go see my counselor at college. I wasn't in a good spot until then.

Next, we drove five hours to my other aunt's house who lived in Atlanta. When we arrived, we had dinner and tried to relax. The next day my brother went for a run and tried to burn some steam off. That night we had a family gift exchange, and it was awesome.

The following morning we packed up again and proceeded to go to Brevard where my Grandma lives. The morning after getting there I was able to go for a nice long walk and try to clear my mind. That same day my mom, sister, grandma, and I went to see some really cool gingerbread houses, and my mom and I were able to go and see some awesome waterfalls. It was a nice time to just be able to relax and get some time with my mom to talk about all the things that were bothering me and that I had been wanting to discuss all of break.

After getting home, I decided to go to Buffalo and spend time with my sister. To be perfectly honest, it was the only time that I was able to really rest and relax. The two days I spent in Buffalo were the best and most enjoyable part of my break. I was just able to spend time in the Word, time praying, and also time having fellowship with some really awesome people.

That was my break; I told some people that, but not all of them. I really want to talk to more people and tell them what really happened over my break, but not just that. I also want people to tell me about their breaks and how they went. I know I am not tight-knit with everyone, but it would be nice to know a little more about what others did and what happened to them.

When you see your friends, either after a break or weekend try to dive deep and see how their breaks went. If something is bothering them, be willing to listen and let them open up.

Treat Everyday like a Holiday

Do you like holidays? Well you can celebrate everyday!

People look forward to holidays and enjoy them when they arrive. On holidays, everyone is a little nicer to one another. On holidays, we are more grateful, spend more time with our friends and loved ones. Holidays are rare and are meant to be special but what if every day was a holiday? Would this make everyone happier more often because people would actually think that this day is special or would it make holidays a moot point? Most people would say the latter. And to an extent I agree however in era where positive thinking is harped on, treating every day like a holiday may not be such a bad thing.

Some people may tell you to "Live every day like it is a fun one that you have been looking forward to for weeks. Treat every day like it is special because it is special." All true but that is much easier said than done. So my suggestion is to pick a few extra holidays and sprinkle them around the times where there are no major ones just so you can get that feeling of excitement and happiness that you do on Christmas.

Get excited to see your friends just like you may be looking forward to Halloween.

Some of my personal favorite random holidays include (but are not limited to):

Compliment Day - January 24:

This holiday started in 1998 and seems like a good day to

International Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day - First Saturday of February:

Did not know this was a thing until I started researching for this article but you better be sure that I will be celebrating this next year.

National Pizza Day - February 9th:

Not only do I love pizza but this happens to fall on my birthday! So I had to include it.

Waffle Day - March 25th:

Clearly, I am liking all the food holidays!

National Joke Day - July 1st:

April fool's day isn't enough, you get another chance to joke around with people. The day after is "I forgot day"; I think that this is probably because you will forget most of the jokes you hear.

August is a very friendly month:

Every week in August has a wonderful theme:

  • Week 1 National Simplify your Life Week
  • Week 2 National Smile Week
  • Week 3 Friendship Week
  • Week 4 Be Kind to Humankind Week

These holidays are just wonderful ways to remind people to practice these positive actions.

National Ice Cream Day - December 13th:

I would not personally expect that National Ice Cream Day would be in the winter but turns out that is in the middle of the cold that we celebrate our favorite cold treat!

Some of the randomest holidays I found included National Nothing Day, National Male Watchers Day (which sounds a little creepy to be honest),

If you are look for a fun way to celebrate the day here is a website that will allow you to pick any day of the year and see which holidays fall on it?


Browse and celebrate at your leisure. Also check out some apps that have daily holidays on those too!
