Its the 24th of May and we likes to get away.
I am homesick this weekend.
Homesick for my med school friends. Homesick for the place where my school was. Where the May long weekend, or May 2-4 as it is fondly known, was celebrated with roadside camping and epic barbecue parties. Our class always went out of town to have a big celebration en mass. It was one of the few parties and things we all went to (even the quiet ones like me).
We might have studied hard, but we partied hard too. And this was probably one of the biggest submersion in local culture things for me and many others.
This long weekend, I have physics to study, hockey to watch and a still sore toe. We can’t have a huge adventure. Despite that, it is a good day for an outside BBQ and relaxing on the deck. Tomorrow, I am insisting we go on a road trip. Because it is May 2-4 and that is what should be done (although I am very okay with not camping in a gravel pit… Plus, that is totally not socially acceptable where we live now).
