The second week of my break was even more relaxing than the first. While I was off campus for the first week I had some assignments to wrap up, but the second week was all mine!
I spent it catching up on the “Avenger” movies (“Captain America” and “Thor”), cooking up a storm and traveling to Chicago. I also spent it doing one of my favorite things, reading for fun. I devoured several books in just a few days and now can’t wait until the summer break when I will be able to read even more.
Some of my less formal reading including reading about a month’s worth of two or three magazines. Some of these I managed to read on a train ride from Effingham, Ill. to Chicago. This train ride is about three-and-a-half hours long and was a great experience. One of my roommates, who’s also from my hometown, and I rode the train to the Windy City to meet our other roommate who lives in the Chicago area. This was a great opportunity to some of the sights that students who take advantage of the Chicago Center experience.
