Our View: Getting over spring break

DKS Editors

It’s been a full week of hanging out, traveling and sleeping. Now we all have to return to the grind. After a string of partying until the early morning hours and waking up in the middle of the day, getting back on track can be just a little complicated.

Here are a few ways to get back on your game and successfully complete the last five weeks of the semester.

Don’t skip Monday’s classes. You haven’t been in a classroom for at least seven days. Use the first few days of this week to really gauge what the last few weeks of school will be like. Reintroduce yourself to your syllabi and your normal routine. The last thing you want to do is fall behind in the home stretch.

Attempt to stabilize your sleeping schedule. You’ve probably been staying up until 2 a.m. or later. This does not work with a job and class schedules that don’t end. Slowly get your mind, body and soul back into shape by changing your sleeping habits again. Going to bed at 10 p.m. is not that bad.

Get started on those final projects. Five weeks will go by just as quickly as the first ten, and if you procrastinate, you will surely be screwed.

See “The Hunger Games” if you haven’t already. That is all.

Start making plans for summer. It’s coming up pretty quickly, so figure out how you’re going to spend the next two or three months before starting the cycle of school all over again in the fall. Whether you’re going to party, work, go to school or intern, you should make a plan soon. Don’t wait until the last minute.

These are just a few tips in how to get over your spring break hangover. Good luck with your final weeks, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
