Taking Time to Relax

gounelleWithout intending to, I went on a blog hiatus, neither writing nor reading, mostly because testing is exhausting and I didn’t want to do anything when I got home from work.

Testing is over now. I’ve upgraded my Planet Fitness membership so I can make use of the hydromassage as I attempt to fix the damage done to my body over the last two weeks. After Thursday’s make up sessions, I was afraid I would throw my back out if I had to be a test administrator anymore.

What’s nice is I’ve had a lovely long weekend. We hung out with friends and played games, went to an Easter egg hunt, and took a trip to White Sands National Monument, which is like going to the beach in the middle of the desert (minus the water).

Spent a lovely afternoon with @blurhima at #WhiteSands National Monument. #NewMexico

I am thankful for the time off. I haven’t finished any books yet, but I don’t feel bad about it. I’ve been catching up on the podcasts I’ve been neglecting for the last two weeks, as well as organizing myself so I can start working on my dissertation again. It’s nice to feel like I’m in a place of productivity.

Here’s wishing all of you a good week. And for your entertainment, here’s a grown man on a backyard-zipline. Happy reading!

Because I had to film @aperezrojas.
