We can do it

spring break is over

Spring break is over. It always goes by way too quickly. Although it seemed more like winter break than spring break since it snowed. I still can’t believe that we get snow during spring nreak. One of the joys or woes of living in Chicago!

After a week off from school, it can be hard to get back into the daily grind of homework, studying, and essays. So, here are some tips to help!

  • Make a schedule. Whether you use a planner or just your notebook, write everything down. Write down your assignments and their due dates and any appointments that you have.
  • Go to sleep at a decent time. No, 3 a.m. is not a decent time.  It will help your body adjust back to a regular schedule.
  • Check in with your professors or TAs. Be sure to utilize their office hours if you have any questions about assignments or the upcoming finals.
  • Schedule in some me time.  The first week back can be a little bit hectic because that is usually when most assignment s are due. So, make sure you take a little break for yourself and relax a little bit.

The first week back will be over with before you know it and another weekend will arrive. The semester is almost over. We can make it!
