My past semester was filled with great classes and professors, several new friends, and adventures around the less-explored parts of the city. But looking back, now that everything has come to an end, I can’t help but realize how busy I was!
Winter Break couldn’t have come at a better time. From the stress of finals to the exhaustion that comes with just being a student, it’s important to grant yourself some much-deserved relaxation time. For me that meant booking a flight home to Georgia to spend the holidays with my family. So far, I have taken advantage of sleeping in a queen-sized bed, eating home-cooked meals, and spending my days without once thinking of an assignment I need to complete.
However, going home isn’t the only way to remove yourself from school. Maybe you’ll want a “staycation,” where you stay in your residence hall and use the break to soak up the decorations around New York City. Maybe you’ll decide to just stay cozied up in your room, watching movies until your TV becomes too hot to touch.
Whatever it is, make sure to take some time to rejuvenate yourself before the next round of classes. Both your body and mind will thank you when February brings on those late night study sessions.
