So, instead I will take a break from my best habits that have anything to do with work. Breaks, by definition, should be different from work, so I will attempt to structure this one as little as possible, rather than make it into a game of tick-that-line-on-the-list. I will read books at random from the collection I've amassed throughout the term in hopes of just such an opportunity (I might not even add them to the running list of books I've read this year). I will pick up my knitting, but set no goals as to finishing any projects. I will peruse recipes at random, and cook whatever I feel like. I will get together with friends, and go to wherever my fancy strikes at that moment. Hell, I might even turn on the TV during the day.
Just like that: no pressure! When's the last time you allowed yourself to sloth? Think you'll join me in spirit? What are some things that you've always promised yourself you'd do during a break--do share! And then go and ENJOY THE BREAK!
*Why, yes, I did just use sloth as a verb. I am claiming neologizing as a PhD superpower!
