(now before you throw up and think I'm a nut job, hear me out!)....see, studying is SO MUCH MORE STRESS-FREE when it's voluntary! In other words, it's your idea, you don't have to, and you can put it down whenever you want.

This is actually the first in between semester break I have taken where I really have not even glimpsed into any nsg books. I got a spa package, and I am going to get 4 hrs of pampering. AHHHH!!!

Just make the most of your free time and even though you may not want to, set aside an hour or two to brush up on things (including math--that's what I always had to do!) cause it helps. Just relax a lot and SLEEP! :zzzzz
