I've laid my plans for spring break, and so far things are looking good! I am going home to Portland next Friday for about 6 or 7 days to begin with. My friend who has been in the Marines for the better part of the last five years has finally gotten out, so I'm going to be spending some quality time with him around the city taking it easy and catching up.
Following that, my girlfriend and I have made plans to rent a beach house for two nights near Newport. Most likely we'll be getting one with a balcony that overlooks the sea, and is a short drive over to the city proper where we can eat our hearts out. My girlfriend's parents have been nice enough to finance the cabin, and my own our food expenses. It has been an absolutely exhausting and rewarding term- both of us have made leaps in bounds in terms of progress in our careers and school and are looking forward to some time to not think for a few days.
