Stressful Week Ends with Some Fun, well Maybe

by Conner April 2, 2012

This week I learned a lesson: If you have time over Spring Break to work on assignments for college, don’t be lazy and do them! My Spring Break was wonderful. It was nice and relaxing. I did absolutely nothing, but I should have used my week off to get ahead in my school work. That [...]
