"In view of my previous weariness of office, and vague thoughts of resignation, my fortune somewhat resembled that of a person who should entertain an idea of committing suicide, and, altogether beyond his hopes, meet with the good hap to be murdered." - The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne.
That was very kind of you! I too would have done something like that if I had enough cash. But unfortunately, the economy of a student such as myself is quite limited, thus I couldn't do much this Christmas, much to my own shame... and I have yet three assignments to finish for the University, meaning that this holiday will be more of a burden than vacation. Sigh.
