It’s almost over.
The semester, that is. The falling leaves and distant scent of finals reviews can only mean one thing. Thanksgiving Break is right around the corner, and Finals Week is just after that, and then—sweet, sweet semester break.
As we get down to the end of the semester, what are you thankful for?
Maybe it’s family and friends. If so, make sure to let them know how much they mean to you. You’ve been holed up studying for the last fourteen weeks, after all; they might’ve forgotten what you look like. Thanksgiving Break is the perfect time to remind them of your good looks.
Maybe you’re thankful for life in general. That’s great! We all aspire to be as positive and upbeat as you. Maybe you’re working on getting to that point. Don’t forget to make time to treat yo’ self while you’re running around like a maniac during the break! That stuffing recipe or last touch on whatever project you have due after Thanksgiving can wait until after you’ve done something for you (even if it’s something as dull as making up your bed).
Whatever you’re thankful for—be it the people in your life or the light at the end of the semester tunnel—enjoy this chance to rest up before finals.
Because that’s a whole other blog post.
Happy Thanksgiving from Distributed Education!
