Productive Spring Break
Spring break is finally here! For some people that means trips, parties, and [insert something fun here]. However, if you are like me and have nothing special planned because you need to play catch up on school work in addition to relaxing then I have some ideas for you!
PLAN - Yes I know that no one wants to plan or think about work but you can efficiently partition your time for studying and relaxing to maximize both. Some people like to spread out their studying time, while others like to get it all done before they relax or leave the last few days of break for work. Either way, it is good to plan it out so you know when you need to study and when you can call up all your buddies to hang out. The last thing you want to do is push all the work until the end but ended up with nothing done because you wanted to hang out with your old high school friends one last time before they leave for school again (it happens..personal experience).
VOLUNTEER - If you find that you finished your work early but still don't have anything to do -- make that time useful! You will find that engaging in meaningful activity is a great way to relax and feel good about yourself!
GET AHEAD ON SCHOOL WORK - Psh, yeah right... But I'm serious! If you can get yourself to do it, you should! This especially applies to humanities courses where you know your readings ahead of time. Think about it: If you read those required readings ahead of time, that's less things to do later.
FIND TIME FOR FUN - So what if you didn't plan your trip to Miami or Las Vegas? You can still have fun! Plan some time to catch up with old buddies from high school if you're back home. Spend time with family or play with your pets. It is Spring Break after-all.
