You hear it all the time from your teachers, “Take this time to rest up and prepare for the finals.” I have taken this suggestion quite literally this break and I suggest that other students do as well. It is important for people to have time to rest up from all the hard work we deal with in school and work. Thanksgiving is a great time to do just take a break because we don't have to attend school. GIving us a little more time on our plate.
During this break I have done a lot of reflecting and have been thankful for my friends and family that help with my busy work and school schedule. If it wasn’t for them I think I would seriously be bothered by all the work I have to constantly work on. It is a good way to relieve stress.
During this break I have also taken the time to rest and study for future tests. Once I head back to school, I will have very little time to prepare for the finals of this semester. That is why Thanksgiving break is a great way to start preparing.
Most important of all though, has to be that I have taken the time to see and hang out with friends and family. I seriously missed them a lot when I am away for school so coming home on breaks is always great because I get to see them.
Don't take your breaks lightly, they are precious free time that you can't afford to lose.
