After a well deserved break, school must start again. While in Austin, going home is great, but with long breaks, home gets a bit boring after a while, and you get ready to go back.
Personally, I like to get back to Austin a couple of days before school starts, to get back into that Austin “vibe”, and to buy my books for that semester. After two years in college, everything seems routine, you know where your classes are, which groups you’re involved with, and things like that. It’s never too late to get involved, and the amount of organizations at the university offer a variety of opportunities. Even in my last semester, I would like to check out different groups and events just to see some of the stuff that goes on at the university.
