Ah, Thanksgiving break. A time to spend with family, friends, enjoying delicous home cooked meals and thinking about all of the things you have to be thankful for. Also technically a time for getting ahead on working/studying but no one ever really does. Normally you have atleast a week or two left in November when you get back and that usually serves as the time to get your shit together before finals. Well, this year Thanksgiving was so late and now all of a sudden finals are in approximatley 2 weeks. You want to enjoy the holiday season but how could you possibly enjoy it when you have dreaded exams looming over you? I have found some ideas that are fun and festive but still leave you with time to study..or atleast pretend to study.
1. Grab a Peppermint Mocha or a Peppermint Hot Cocoa.
You need caffeine before class anyway, might as well make it festive!
2. Christmas Music.
You already have headphones in during your 20 minute walk to class anyway, might as well play some holiday classics!
3. Room Scents
You always want your place to smell nice, why not have it smell like peppermint, or cinnamon!
4. Making Christmas Cookies
You can study while they're baking and have a mid/post study snack when they're done.
5. Decorate Your Place
If you plan on being in your place to study anyway, why not make your place look cute and festive!
6. Sight See
If you live in a place that is warm enough, you may be able to sit and work outside and enjoy the Christmas lights. If it's pretty chilly where you are, you could always bundle up and take a 15-minute study break and walk around and look at the likes
7. Watch A Christmas Movie
If its a weekend or a night you do not have the test the next day, everyone deserves and hour and a half off sometimes.
