To all of my fellow students lucky enough to have a J-Term, I hope you’re enjoying it! To those of you who have no idea what I mean, J-Term, or January Term, is a shortened semester that only lasts the month of January. At Macon, taking a class is included in your tuition. Our professors manage to shove a whole class into four short weeks and teach about topics that students would never take for an entire semester. Some people have internships. Many study abroad. Everyone loves it!
If often gets the nickname “J-Term, Play Term” (read: only one class = lots of free time). Last year, I took a service-learning course that required an internship, in addition to a class, on top of cultural activities. Whew! This year, on the other hand, has been a breath of fresh air. If there is anything you should know about me, it’s that I cannot relax. Every fiber of my being and every hair on my head itches to be productive. After a rough fall semester, however, I finally slowed down and this is what happened.
