With the stress of classes, finding the time to take a step away from it all is ineffable. Senior year, according to the status quo, is supposed to be the year of relaxation; however, for me it’s sometimes the opposite. I knew it was anything but relaxing when I was given a quiz that took three hours to complete. When given the opportunity to take a “breather,” I took it without hesitation. And nothing puts the mind at ease quite like music. I’m sure senior year will be rewarding, but sometimes the time spent away from it all is just as rewarding. But as Colin Powell once said: “A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” So on that note I’d better head back to class.
