Summer vacation? What is that?

Enjoy it while you can

I'll take a day off here and there, not much else. I took two weeks off for moving this spring and I regretted it so much...when I came back at work it was 90-100/h week for a month just to try to catch up and almost everyone complains even if I notified them months in advance.

Ahhh! being a student...even final exams seemed like it was a vacation uhhh... sleep, study a little...stay awake until early morning if you've been late on a paper or haven't been studying as you should have...(or, if getting some sleep at night is not an option, fall asleep at the library between two exams and hope that a classmate will wake you up in time for the next one...did that...went to the next exam with a weird marking on my face from having fall asleep on a book and managed to get the highest mark lol), do the exam, sleep again...repeat 4/5 times max... it was a real joke. Besides, the only responsibility I had was my own person, not others' companies, portfolios, investments, lifes, etc... If I would have ever failed (exams, paying my landlord, etc), I would have had only me to blame as there were not many external factors could come into play nor my own failure would have affected anyone else. Now, if one of my clients fails, I could, in some cases, be responsible or blamed for such failure... and the problems have nothing to do with the black and white stuff you see at school.

I often miss the good old student time...as well as some sleep!

When I hear folks in places like Canada and Norway telling me its -15C during their winter, I get goosebumps just thinking about it

Yes, but it's mostly lager, and as such has no taste other than the vague hint of urine sprinkled amongst the bubbles. English beer is famous for being warm; that's because we like it to taste of something.

And a freezing cold night on these lands. In fact, I think it's around 15C now...

Not surprising at all to see a Brazilian and Australian find 12C cold, but the Englishman think it's pleasant!

Now all 3 of us need to do is walk into a bar and we're 50% of the way to a classic joke from the 1930s
