Spring Break!

Not going to lie, all that has been on my mind is spring break.  College students across the country have marked the date down on their calendars for this wonderful week of time off in the middle of a grueling semester.  It is a time to avoid the tests, midterms and hell for a week to gather oneself and return rested and ready to finish the semester.  Many often call college students lazy or party animals for taking a week off but they do not realize the struggles that college students must endure.  Gone are the days of working through college and graduating in four years.  Now students must take out expensive loans, often must take a fifth year do to cuts in classes and must work much harder than ever before due to the few amount of jobs available.  Breaks are healthy and necessary regardless of profession so to all my fellow college students out there enjoy this break, visit family and have FUN!! Because once you come back its business as usual.

Hitting the Spring wall

People tend to do better in college in the Fall semester than in the Spring and if you can't see the reason then look outside your window.  The weather is beautiful, the trees are covered in flowers and it is hard to think of a reason as to why someone would be so cruel and have school when days are so beautiful.  This is when time management comes in.  One must stay focused on the tasks at hand and finish them quickly and diligently in order to enjoy the beautiful days.  I will not lie, it has been hard to focus on tests when I just want to relax on a tropical beach with a pina colada.  This is when the greats separate themselves from the rest.  The work put in during this time makes all the difference, so manage your time wisely in order to enjoy the beautiful weather!
