I won’t lie, I was very distracted with my studies during Thanksgiving week. I went back home to spend a few days with my family and helped prepare the Thanksgiving dinner. It was difficult to make time for my studies, but I made sure to work hard before I went home because I had a feeling I knew I was going to be distracted.
The holiday season is always tough for me in regards to studying because this is my favorite time of year and I always get so excited to help cook, decorate the house, and be around my family and friends. It can be very difficult to find a balance between holiday time and study time, but it can be done! Before I left to go back home, I made sure to set deadlines and goals for myself in regards to getting a certain amount of studying done. I also tried to wake up earlier than everyone else during the week and get at least a few hours of videos or reading done. It’s possible to study during the holidays, but don’t burn yourself out doing it. Enjoy some well-deserved time off and be sure to work hard in your spare time, so you can enjoy the holiday season as well!
