This last week has been CRAAAZY! 7 finals in school, studying hardcore every night, trying to keep track of my diet and exercise at the same time... at one point I was up on the treadmill, walking for 20 minutes, with my ginormous English book propped up on the fan, reading over Puritan Era literature. Whew!

But finals are done, school is finally out, and now it's time for Christmas! BRING IT ON!!!

Are the rest of you out of school yet? Done with finals? Ready to parteh? :D

Congratulations!!! Have a wonderful Christmas break and de-stress as much as you can! No finals for me-that was many, many years ago, but I remember it oh too well......

I am ready to relax, so far none of that yet...still waiting for the big BREAK.

Congratulations! I'm surprised you are still up lol. Usually after my last final I'd be passed out in bed the rest of the day!

Biochem grad student here... I only had one final, since I was only taking one class that lasted the full semester. I did have some other paperwork to do before the end of the semester (like getting my committee finalized) and that's all done now, too. Yay!

I'm not really taking much of a break, I'll be in the lab pretty much every day other than Christmas day and New Year's day... but it's nice to have a few weeks off from the classes, journal clubs, lab meetings, seminars, etc.

I'm already dreading next semester, though... I'm TAing a lab course, plus taking a 3- or 4-credit class and two 1-credit classes. In April I've got my yearly student seminar and a journal club to present in the same week. And all of this while starting to write my proposal and prepare for my qualifying exam, which is this summer. Eww.

ohh I don't have finals this semester just final projects (graphic design major). I feel bad for the people that have hard core finals. I'd say good luck and I hope you guys pass the class with an A+++.
Enjoy your winter break while you can because you know what's going to happen next semester, I'm not even going to say it......
