Break is over and I am back in school! I can’t say that I really need to get back into the school mode because I have been studying during my six week break. I have been trying to prepare for my rigorous courses by doing practice exams, reviewing the textbook, and getting mentally prepared. The first day of school is tomorrow and I am ready. Break was spent well with my family. I watched tons of movies, ate home-cooked food, and just took a breather from the high stakes environment that comes with academia. Overall though, being home was great. I did not get to see my friends much as the Dartmouth trimester allows me to be on break when my friends are away and vice versa. It was not hard leaving home this time because I know that I am going back to school to work hard and set things up academically. Let’s do this!
