Thinking about taking a vacation was all the vacation I needed. I am no longer fried. I have a suspicion that if I took a semester off, two months into it I would regret the decision. Go with your gut.
I'll still be in Greenville over Xmas. Back to San Diego In January. Internship starts. Less bullshit (hopefully). I'm dialing back my responsibilities to the entity that is student council. Still on track to finish by December 08, and then the real excitment (scary part) begins.
I'm also involved with an interesting girl, making these days a lot more enjoyable.
