It was a very restful/productive weekend. The nice thing about a long weekend is that, if you plan it just right, you can be productive, but still do fun things. I did a little bit of homework and to-do-list thingson Saturday and the same with Sunday, but then I was still able to do fun things at night. I also got to watch some Netflix, which is one of my favorite things to do. I caught up with some of my friends after their first week of classes and basically enjoyed not having class today. It has been a little weird though because for 10 minutes yesterday it felt like I was back on break and wow that was a great feeling. I LOVE a good Sunday when you don’t have school/work the next day. I mean it is probably one of the best things about extended weekends. Because all that procrastination that we have on Sundays just moved to Monday and then Sunday, AKA the day of rest, can actually be a day full of rest. So yes, I enjoyed having today off… You could also say I am thankful for it!
Also, how cool is it to have a whole day named after you? To have a whole holiday devoted to you. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) changed the way a lot of people in this world think and act. His impact and legacy has been doing so for a number of years. He deserves this day. For me this day is not about being thankful to have a day of no class… It is about being thankful we have a day to reflect and honor a once great man who changed history. The day of no class is just an added perk. This is not about politics, buttoday is instead about a man who shaped the future for years and years to come in a positive way. NOW, that is why we should be thankful today.
I hope you all enjoyedtoday, but I also hope you took a minute to think about what today is all about. I hope you all took at least one minute to reflect on what our world would be like if today had never existed. Thank you Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for the impact that still lasts. We appreciate it!
