Take a break. Kenyon sometimes is too much, so take a break. Not from the college itself, but from your work, your activities and your responsibilities. Sit and listen to music, go for a run or take a nap, but make sure to unwind. Sometimes I listen to some Norah Jones or talk to my mom.

Coming at you with another video today, this one detailing the recent time I've spent with my family who came over to visit me. It was a lot of fun, and something refreshing amidst this cloud of essays and stress. I start traveling soon, but for now, here's a little something to stave off homesickness for the next few months!
It is of course hard to imagine life without friends. Everyone has them. It could be your dog, you uncle bob, or an old sneaker, but everyone has got a friend. I have found college a key place to have them, maybe the best place. Also, cue youtube video.
My friends and I did a little spring break'in the last two weeks. Here is a recap of how the Kenyon folk organize spring break. I will highlight our trip, other trips I heard about, and other thoughts on a 2 week extravaganza of fun. Trust me, it is as good as it sounds. Here is a video of a guy with a DJI Phantom (mini helicopter with a go-pro), taking shots of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (one of my stops). You don't have to watch the whole thing, I just figured I would continue with my YouTube introductions.
