Las Vacaciones de un Profesor, Pt. I

Cualquiera pensaría que mis vacaciones acabaron de empezar. La verdad es que llevo un mes en vacaciones casi. En una cosa u otra he estado ocupado. Pensé en esta idea porque ayer una madre me dijo que los profesores siempre se desaparecen huyendo en verano y en invierno. Y pensé, "Yo siempre decía lo mismo!" So ... let me solve the mystery.

What do teachers do in summer?

That first week of vacations I wake up at 6:45am. "I have to be there by 7:30am." I set the clock for 6:50am. "5... more... minutes..." At some point my dad walks in and says "Vas a llegar tarde!" I get up and zombie my way to the bathroom. I'm so tired. I take off my pijamas, turn on the shower ... WAIT A MINUTE! ... SUMMER VACATION! ... I put it all back on, turn off the shower ... walk out "Yo estoy en vacaciones!" My dad's face turns into "ohhh yeah" and "i hate you now." I find a sudden burst of life and waltz on over to my room, I cartwheel, do two backflips, dance the electrobuggy, maybe even the worm on the floor right before I swan dive onto my bed. I snuggle, I twist and turn, I love my bed. I'm dead asleep before you know it.

Next thing you know it's about 10 or 11am. I finally wake up. I'm loving this. I turn the PC on. I read the news. I read the blogs I haven't read in months. I read the comics. I write e-mails. I automatically set up the torrent to download all the movies I've not been able to keep with. I check my little personal library and take out the books I want to read this summer - 6 this summer.

I don't need breakfast yet. Should I have breakfast? I might as well wait for lunch, right? Hmmm my dad won't be here for about 2 more hours. What am I going to do? ... ... ... ... ... SLEEP!

I can definitely relate to this post. For me, the clock does not exist in the summer, and that is just great. I have so much time... I have already read three books. I love the summer.

Keep enjoying your summer, it goes by really quickly.

I would have so love to see that one day.
