I had last week off from school to celebrate Thanksgiving and returned home to spend time with my family, eat delicious food and do some shopping. Prior to Turkey Day, I was reluctant to break up the relaxation period with schoolwork, so I didn’t hit the books much, studying just a little every other day. I got around to studying more diligently after Thursday. Although since we’ve only had a week of classes this quarter thus far, the coursework hadn’t piled up yet and by Monday morning, I was back on top of my game.
During break, some of my closest friends from grade school and I celebrated marriage and love at the wedding of one our friends. When Sunday came around, I returned to campus, tackled some more studies and spent a few necessary hours catching up with my roommates and friends.
With the holidays around the corner, the Residential Complex hosted a holiday decorating party with cookies and eggnog on Monday night. The RC is also having a door decorating contest and my roommates and I have started decorating our door. But while there are many outlets for fun inside and outside of the RC, there is always a reason to be studious. Our exams begin next week along with the unrelenting regular assessments. Good luck to us all!
