May 1st weekend... Labor Day

All throughout Europe, May 1st is a national holiday... Labor Day, to be specific.  Virtually all businesses close to give the day off to their employees on the closest Monday, which means we get a three-day weekend.

In 2009, I went to Istanbul.  In 2010, I hiked the Buda hills and had a picnic.  In 2011, I am staying home and (at least in theory, agh) writing papers.  My thesis is due in 32 days, and between now and then I also have to write a 15-page 1-and-a-half-spaced paper for my history class and a 3-page single-spaced paper for my issues in modern education class.  Add that to the forty-odd pages I still need to write of thesis, and you can tell that I am going to be SUPER busy and antisocial in the lovely month of May.

But then, on June 1st, when my thesis is turned in and I start working only half-days at work?  I'm going to be the happiest girl in the world!
