The spring break finally has begun, and I am here in Niles, Illinois.
I finished my last midterm on Thursday night, and on very early morning of Friday I took a greyhound bus to come down here. I have been feeling not so good, so this time I came to enjoy Korea's hot sauna & spa.
I know everybody has been waiting to have a spring break, and I also know that once your exams are all taken care of you all want to just have fun until the spring break is over.
I, here, too wanted to just enjoy spring break as it comes naturally. Actually this semester has been so stressful, all I wanted during spring break was sleeping and do nothing.
However, soon I realized how spring break is important to students like me.
1. During spring break you can catch up what you've missed during semester.
2. You can still work (International undergraduate students can only work up to 20 hours per week, but during spring break you can work up to 40 hours per week depends on where you work), and save money for future!
3. If you do not have to catch up study (lucky you!), you can start preparing exams. Some of the exams and projects are due right after spring break is over.
4. You can use this valuable time to do some great volunteer!
Other than what I already wrote, I am sure there are millions of things you can do in order to use the time wisely. I am not saying don't take a break during spring break, but find your own balance so after break you won't feel overwhelmed. And break is quite long to just sleep and party. Use your time wisely, then you will appreciate spring break even more.
