With Ramadhan so close to the regular between-semester vacation, plus that my college releases its students earlier than any other school in the country, this year’s “summer” vacation is pretty wildly extended for me. Some of my friends stick around school for some organizational works, but I honestly don’t want to have anything to do with college for the time being. I’d rather be at home spending time with my family. Sometimes I feel like I’m just leeching off them, considering that I don’t have a steady job or even any idea for a steady job… But I’m digressing.
