I'm not even leaving the city. Last year i went to see raps game during spring break though.
I mean we got off on the 9th (Friday) then first day of class was 19th (Monday). 9 days off, same as yours.
As for my second vacation, I'm just not going to class. I only took 3 classes this semester. 1 of them tests straight from the text book and reserved readings, 1 is straight off of online notes and 1 is off of in class notes which my buddy is taking for me.
I have 3 tests and an paper due right before I leave, and 1 paper due 4 days into my vacation, so all I have to do is hand that last paper in before I leave.
