Whelp, fall break is over and the mood around campus right now is a little bit depressing. Everywhere you turn there is a student crying out to the sky, “NO, WHY, it just flew by so fast!, I need one more day of rest” but its time to set our clocks back to reality. Eventhough we basically had one day of break including the weekend, that one day was very much needed—-with the chaotic schedules, exams, quizes, papers, and presentations, I would say one day of doing nothing is a gift sent from above. My own fall break was nothing short of reading and studying in preparation for the next chapters we will be discussing and testing for in my science classes, however I was not alone. Many Neumann students were also relaxing and opening up their textbooks to review for classes after midterm grades were posted up. Yes, midterms—the highlight of every college students’ life; of course most students will rebuttle this. But midterms are eye openers for all college students—-it is a way to advise yourself and start getting your priorities straight based on your performance in classes so far in the semester, and also congratulate yourself for being such a great student and getting good grades in all your courses, but of course you have to maintain those grades or work harder to bring them up more. If asked, I would say my fall break was ok or maybe even relaxing, but that would be a lie. Truth is, I was excercising my brain cells, reading, writing papers, and going over notes because, well, I have to in order to stay on top of everything school related. Some might say I have no life, and I will not even bother to argue because I don’t, just focusing on school, that’s my life. I wish I could just pass out alseep for more than 10 hours right now, but then I will miss a class. Its bittersweet to say that fall break is over, but the 3 days of no class was beautiful. For now, everything is back to business and classes resume tomorrow—HOORAY!! I think.
Goodluck to everyone with classes tomorrow, especially students with 8ams…set your alarms to 7am because that 5 minute more of sleep might just turn into an hour! Yes, you know what I am talking about, we have all done it.
Oh, do not attempt the above solution for stress reduction…Cheers!
