Thanksgiving break is what we live for; we are off from school and we eat like emperors. This time is valuable and should be spent taking a break from studying and relaxing. However, there is a fine line with taking a break, and just being lazy all break. One of the biggest challenges for students is procrastination, and this break caters to that very well. You will almost always find yourself putting things off until last minute during break, but here is why you should reconsider.
First, break is a great time to get ahead of things since you aren’t in class. A lot of times students feel like they are off the hook from everything. Then, they get back to class and realize they fell behind. Do not let this be you. You should try to review your materials a little bit each day, or at least plan your next tests out, and then you will see when everything is due so you can be comfortable. Next, break will give you a lot of time to focus on the separate things you couldn’t do because you were in school. By this, I am talking about your separate to-do items, that aren’t as important as school, so you couldn’t do them. For example: I have to study for my exam instead of looking for job shadowing, since I can do that at anytime. This is the time to catch up on all of those little things.
This break I will focus on learning how to meal prep and take care of my separate to-do lists. How will you spend your Thanksgiving break?
