All work and no play? No way.

With only a few weeks left until the end of this semester, we are all left wondering: Where did all the time go?! It’s so easy to lose track of time when you’re here, to be caught up in assignments and projects and meetings and… a whole lot of fun thrown into the mix. Before coming to Harvard Graduate School of Education, I was warned about how intense and how much work there was going to be, for most of us would only be here for less than a year. But I wasn’t warned about how much play there would be. Play in all forms one could possibly imagine: road trips, museum visits, in-class tic-tac-toe and video games, water color chemistry experiments… and the list just keeps getting longer. Don’t say nobody warned you!
