How Will You Spend Your Freedom? ;)

Winter break is two weeks away and I can already feel the excitement starting to build up (although we all have to get through finals and even the last round of midterms for some). I think having something fun planned for winter break to look forward to while studying for finals is a great way to get through the end of the semester craziness. Whether you are going on a trip, spending time with friends and family, working for some extra cash, or just taking some time to relax, winter break is something we can all look forward to after such hard work all semester long!

This winter break is my last break as an undergraduate, which means I will actually have to do some work on my Graduate/Dietetic Internship applications. Although, I am happy that I will have plenty of time to work on them without having to worry about school work on top of it all. I will also be back and forth between home (Petaluma, only about an hour from here) and Berkeley, since I work at Children’s Hospital in Oakland.

I have some fun activities planned as well. I am looking forward to spending some time with my new puppy, Charlie. Puppies need so much attention and training and I am glad that I will have winter break to dedicate much more of my time to him. I also plan on spending some time with my family and my friends from back home that I haven’t seen in a while, making a trip up to Tahoe to go snowboarding, and enjoying the holiday festivities (Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year!). However, what I am looking forward to most is my trip to the East Coast with my mom and my aunt. We are going to go to New York and Boston and while we are there we will visit some schools that I am applying to. I can’t wait for this trip because I have never been to the East Coast before and we have lots of exciting activities planned.

I hope that everyone else plans on enjoying their winter break as much as I am! Make sure to find some time for yourself over break to rejuvenate. Good luck with finals and happy holidays!!!
