Thanksgiving time around CBU means a break! This break, I feel, was most needed for all of the students. This was the first time off we had received all year and most of us took full advantage of this time. It falls exactly two weeks before finals, allowing us time to relax, sleep in, study leisurely, and overall just enjoy our time away from the classroom. This break was a time of freeing any stress we may have had just before finals hit.
I got to go home the Friday before break began. This first thing I did when I got back in town was go to my step-brother’s house to see his family and spend the day there. That night I finally got to go home. The week of break I spent sleeping in until about 9 almost every morning and it felt great! When at school, I would wake up anywhere from 5-7 every morning, so sleeping in till 9 or 9:30 a.m. was heaven to me.
Now that break had ended, it’s time to get ready for finals. Intense studying has been going on all week long in preparations. During finals week next week, I only have one final since the rest of my finals took place this week. Therefore, it gives me all weekend and a couple days next week to get ready for that intense final that has been haunting my thoughts all week. But I know I’ll do great.
This week will be an intense week for all of CBU. This is the last stretch before winter break, and I am looking forward to having these next four weeks off.
