It seems that the first week back after reading week is full of students saying, “I should have done way more work than I did,” and “I didn’t open a book the whole week!” With reading week coming up, it is important to plan realistic goals for the week so that you can say, “I accomplished everything I wanted to over the break.” Trying to accomplish too much over the break means you won’t have a break at all, but not touching any school work could make the next 6 weeks more difficult.
