I have never had a proper spring break. In high school my school had this weird long weekend spring break, and we never actually got a week off. In college, spring break fell during track season and I always had a track meet over spring break. I used to love watching MTV spring break when I was in sixth grade, and my own spring break experiences have been subsequently disappointing to say the least. However, that all changed this year. Not only did I do spring break, I did spring break grad student style. How does one spring break like a graduate student? Watch and learn.
