Home Stretch to Staycation

The week before Fall Break can be difficult. Push through the hand cramps of the five papers due by midnight, and study hard for those stacked midterms. Pace yourself, taking one day at a time. Before you know it, we will have our staycation at home. Some of you have trips planned, some are working, and some are using this time to do laundry and bake cookies. I say to you “huzzah” in all of your Break endeavors. We are nearly there.
