Spring Break 2014 has just come and passed. While this is a time for most undergrads to get away from campus, it’s a time for grad students like me to stick around and get work done. This is what it looks like.

    i was about to get super mad when I saw the picture that others schools actually give spring break for their grad students lol. The worst part is people asking me “what are you going to do for spring break?” my response usually is “what is spring break?” I sound so bitter lol
