6 Ways to Get Ready for Finals Over Thanksgiving Break

If you’re a college student, I’m guessing the title of this blog doesn’t sound so appealing.  I can hear you protesting, “But it’s Thanksgiving break!  What part of break do you not understand?”.

Well, yes, of course you should enjoy your break, spend time with family and friends, and concern yourself with things other than school.  But here’s an unfortunate reality check:  final exams are coming up very soon.  If you devote just a little time over Thanksgiving to do some preparations for finals, your life maybe quite a bit easier when those exams roll around.  And hey, if you’re bummed out about studying over Thanksgiving break, keep in mind that winter break is right around the corner — and you won’t have to do any studying at all then!

Here are some tasks you can accomplish over Thanksgiving break.

  1. Make a schedule for the next few weeks. This may be the most helpful thing you can do for yourself. Before things get really hectic, do some serious time management.  Make a list of everything you have to do before the end of the semester, and map out when you’re going to do it all.  Trust me, if you do this well, it will make a difference in your performance and sanity during finals!
  2. Catch up on the reading. Now, if you’re thousands of pages behind, this might be a lost cause.  But if you’re behind just a little bit here and there, do the reading now.  You might want to catch up selectively and read the things that you think are most important.

7 Nice Things to Do for Your Parents this Thanksgiving Break

Going home for Thanksgiving?  Whether you miss your parents and can’t wait to get home, or you’re dreading this visit, try to see your time home from your parents’ perspective.  They may be eager to see the child they badly miss, or they may be concerned about tensions that may result in a child coming home from college who is used to unlimited freedoms — or both.

At any rate, here are seven nice things you can do for your parents when you come home for Thanksgiving.

  1. Thank your parents. It’s Thanksgiving, after all, so let your parents know how grateful you are to have them in your life.  Tell them how grateful you are to have a home to return to for the holidays.  If they are helping you pay for your college education, by all means, thank them repeatedly for this wonderful gift that many parents cannot provide.
  2. Spend time with your parents. Are you going to sleep until noon and then head out the door immediately to hang out with your high school friends — and only visit with your parents during the mandated turkey time?  Guess what?  Your parents miss you, and hope that you see their home as more than just a hotel.  Schedule some actual activities with the folks — and yes, you should take the initiative to ask.
