(February 15, Monday)
As most should know, it was Presidents Day today. This means that some, including me, had the day off. I find it rather odd that it is called Presidents Day when in reality it originated from George Washington’s birthday in recognition of him. Why then do a majority of us receive the day off because of one person’s birthday? Don’t get me wrong, I won’t complain since it is an older federal holiday, but who actually celebrates? Sometimes it seems like the holidays with more days off receive more meaning and significance. On the other hand, these one day holidays tend to fly by with little attention.
I celebrated the fact that I had the day off and that my roommate was arriving at around 8:30pm.
