Holidays

We are trying to plan a trip out to Santa Cruz Island.

We are trying to plan a trip out to Santa Cruz Island.

In grade school and even up to my Junior year of University I relished every weekend that had a missing Monday attached to it. Now that the first three day weekend of the quarter is upon me I do not look at it with joy but rather inconvenience.

I have lab class four days a week, on Monday I have my Senior Lab. By missing a Monday I do not get out of the work in any way, nor do I have individual access to the labs. As such my lab partner and I have to reschedule Monday’s lab session to another time or simply lose a day of lab initially dedicated to writing up our lab reports.

What makes it worse that in a month there is another Monday off. Why can’t the holiday land on a Tuesday or a Thursday where I have actual classes that can be cancelled? 

Maybe next (and last) quarter I should schedule my classes with holidays in mind.
