A Damned Holiday

Leave a comment

Generally speaking, people are fond of holiday. While on vacation, they could enjoy themselves beyond busy work. May 1st is Labor Day. Chinese have a three days’ holiday according to law. In order to make the worker enjoy happier days and advance the economic growth, the government made a policy that people would enjoy seven days at the beginning of May. Then we call these days “Golden Week”. It sounds very nice, doesn’t it?

Now to my mind, this week is not “golden” but damned. It’s not my holiday.

Actually, there are nine days for me to have a rest. Because I didn’t need to have classes since last Saturday. I liked to be on holiday in former days for the busy classes. But this time I don’t feel any happiness.

Some say that in college every day is vacation time, provided that you run away from the class. Maybe this saying is right. This week is an official vacation because of no worrying about the class roll call. You have enough time to do whatever you want in this long vacation. However, I have little passion when the holiday comes. I’m confused.

In schooldays, I need to have a meal, go to class, take exercise and so on. Now I have nothing to do but sleep on bed. Even the canteen has been where I am not willing to go. It’s too boring.

As a matter of fact, I had some plans for this holiday. Such as going home, having a trip with someone or visiting high school classmates in Beijing. Even if having a nice day with someone in campus seemed perfect to me. Finally these all came to naught due to various reasons. The only thing that I can do is to stay at the dormitory. What a bad plan!

Considering some examinations this term, I’d better to review books at school. Espeically the midterm exam of Econometrics. It’s an ugly course where Maths, Statistics and English are mixed here. It’s so difficult that we don’t know what the teacher talking about constantly. Thus I must prepare for it well as soon as possible.

For some unknown reasons, last month my Internet traffic was beyond the limit of 10G a month. So my account was locked by ISP of our university. And nobody of ISP keeps watch on this vacation. Fortunately, I got an extra prepaid card from one of my friends. Now I could surf on the Intenet again.

Well, nothing to worry about, nothing to think of, just calm down to prepare myself for the coming exams. I don’t wanna fail.

Every day is a nice day. However, sometimes naive.

These words always vibrate in my mind.
