    in a while/make it count

    "This is the first long weekend I have had in a while so I wanna make it count" -> American Reunion movie

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8yMYtJRK1c 16 min. 06 sec.

    What does "in a while" and "make it count" mean in the sentence above. I'm asking because Polish translation in my opinion is not very good.

    Re: in a while/make it count

    I already know what "make it count" means but I still don't understand the part with "in a while" - "...I have had in a while".

    "In a while" means "in a long time".

    I have had in a while. <- Is it Present Perfect?
