Busy- the new idle

I am back from a successful (in terms of eating much delicious, home made food) and festive Turkey Break and have every minute allotted to something or another from here until next Wednesday.

Don't let anyone ever tell you college is restful. Right now, the hardest part is finding time to sleep! It gets hectic around this time every semester, so one would think I'd be used to it by now. Papers, exams, performances, homework- the various presentations of the culmination of a semester of learning, barreling down the home stretch before winter break. As of right now, there are only 11 days of class, 21 days total, until the residence halls close. The reason why those two numbers are so different is because there's a six day period allotted for finals after classes stop meeting. It's broken up so that classes end, then there's a study day, two exam days, another study day, and a final two exam days. Beloit does an excellent job of spacing out tests to make sure no one feels too overwhelmed, for which I am extremely grateful. If you have an approaching test of your knowledge gathered during this semester, in whatever format it may be, I hope it goes well.
