I'm currently in nursing school
and have a lot coming up with the end of semester exams and finals, as I'm sure you do, too.
I've been on Thanksgiving break that started this past Wednesday, and I will tell you, I have been taking complete advantage of it. I haven't done a single thing for nursing school this week. Tonight I'm going to finish up any homework for Monday so that I don't have to stress about it Sunday night, but other than that, I've taken a break from school.
I may not be getting a 4.0 anymore because I'm not devoting every waking moment to school, but I'm at least keeping myself somewhat sane, too.
I'm also going to be taking at least an afternoon to go gift shopping with my husband.
So I say... celebrate!! It will renew and energize you! As long as you don't make your holiday too complicated or stressful. This year, my husband and I are scaling Christmas waaaay back, financially and time-wise because I'm in school.
School is still the priority. But, we all need to take mini-breaks and have a little family time, too.
