Not that I mean to be nosy...ok, maybe I do mean to be nosy, but what is going on with you that you are able to be spending so much time on this forum lately?
I'm nervous that the rest of your life/responsibilities are going to suffer for it and you will have to "disappear" again for months while you straighten things out.
Tell me if it's none of my business, but it just seems like you are spending an inordinate amount of time here,
and I'm a little worried about you.
It is very simple - currently I am enjoying winter holidays and trying to make up for the times of my absence. We are staying at home as usual, we never go away in winter.
Don`t worry about my life responsibilities, e.g., time spent with the family, I am able to attend the forum and run an English lesson with a kid at the same time.
An average school year in Poland:
-it always starts on 1st September.
-it usually ends on 20 something of June.
-it is always divided into two terms - September-January/ January-June
-together it makes 10 months of school
-luckily, there are a few "bank holidays" for students like:
1 November - All Saints` Day - one day
11 November - Independence Day - one day
24 December - 2 January - Christmas
Moveable winter holidays - from late January to mid February - always 2 weeks.
Moveable Easter - from March to April - always 1 week
1, 2, 3 May - Labour Day, Constitution Day - always 3 days.
Moveable holiday of Corpus Christi - from April to June - always one day.
After doing the sums, it makes 8 months of hard school work.
PS. Schools also break up for freshmen students on days of final exams. In case of high schools, it is 3 days in May. Junior high schools - 3 days in April.
