Being a student at Full Sail University, particularly one in the midst of final project working 12 hour work days monday-friday, I get to be subject to a complete and total lack of free time. Granted I have friends worse off than I in this department, but thats still subject to change.
That being said, free time is a thing of great value to me as of late. It’s a bit of me time where I usually get to throw my life in whatever direction I choose before being forced to get back to work. So whenever I get the chance, meaning whenever I don’t get home from a 12 hour day with another starting soon, I try to unwind by doing something I want to do. I feel it allows me to unwind a bit and allows me to not go crazy up until this point.
Up until recently the activity of choice was spending time with my girlfriend. Seeing as she’s moved to the west coast (a distance that gets compounded by a 3 hour time difference) thats no longer an option.
As my one week summer break is coming up I’ve been given 3 options:
1st option is I could stay here in FL. It’s a cheap easy way out of picking from the other two but kinda slights all the parties I want to see. The upside is i can goof around and have free time to myself for once.
2nd option is I could travel to the west coast to visit my girlfriend and spend time with her. The downside is that traveling is expensive (I guess thats more of a note than an actually downside) and my true problem with this lies in the fact I would be staying with her family. From my limited interaction with them they’re good people, I’m just not too enthused by the thought of monitoring myself for the sake of making a good impression for people who are letting me stay in their home for the sake of their daughter. I’m not even sure how valid an option is is anyway.
3rd option is travel home for the one week off I get and spend it seeing friends and family. I do miss my old friends, but i do tend to get guilt from my family for my lack of communication. I also feel bad for neglecting my older friends as well. (if anyof of you read this, your not forgotten I’m just busy and anti-social at that….my bad >.<)
I’m not really too sure who to talk to in particular over this seeing as most of the people I would talk to are biased in this scenario……>.<
