Ready for Winter Break!?

Winter break is the best time to recharge myself for another adventurous semester. It’s time to leave school for awhile and go home to enjoy some family time~! During breaks, my family and I usually travel, either to other countries or within the states. This break is no exception. We will be cruising around in our car in California and Las Vegas!

Besides traveling, I like to spend some of my break reading novels and watching movies. Since I rarely have time for my wanna-read-novels throughout my busy semester, sitting down and submerging into my favorite books or movies is indeed pleasurable!

Being a junior premed student, medical school applications are not far away. So, this winter break, I plan to start studying for the MCAT and change my studying gear to a higher nerdified level. Usually before the start of a new semester, I would buy some of the books for my future classes and start reading a couple of chapters on my own. Just to be ready and to get a feel of what the class is about. By previewing ahead, I find myself more involved in class discussions even in the beginning of semester and have an easier time absorbing the material in class.

Winter break is a good time to volunteer, work, look for an internship, join the gym, learn a new recipe, try new things, and have fun! Most importantly, be safe and happy with whatever you do! Have a nice break everyone! Good luck and do well on finals!

Here are some career center suggestions
See y’all after break!
