We just had two free days this week. Last week, I decided that this is the best time to go away from the hustle and bustle of the city and take time to unwind in some nearby province. I deliberately read in advance all law assignments because I didn’t want to bring along my law stuff because after all, it is a vacation. I did not expect the resort to have wifi but I brought my laptop anyway- not to study of course. I also didn’t want to open my facebook account because there might be some changes again in assignments or schedules which mean that I might be required to study whatever it is that might be added.

Anyway, much to my surprise, they do have wifi. Worse, people there who were on a vacation were busy with their laptops/iPads/Smart phones that I suddenly felt that I wasn’t being reasonable to just let time pass me by. I felt guilty because I thought (or believe) that all my classmates were studying and I was the only one who isn’t and the itch of going online was getting stronger by the moment.

Well, anyway, I did not give in to my “cravings” and chose NOT to be online. Anyway, I realized that yesterday might be the only day in which I did not check the internet for assignments/announcements since classes started. I also realized that even law students need time off because of the daily tension we undergo in the College. Law students are not superheroes, we need some time off too.
