It’s the Weekend!

The first round of midterm exams are coming to a close; for me: four out of five complete.  Even still with one left this coming Monday, I couldn’t be happier to see the weekend ahead.  This week has been among the most tiring set of days I’ve had in my college experience.  Here is a description of each day I’ve had this week (or at least what I can recall):

Monday – Dynamics exam first thing in the morning, 2 hours of class, 3 hours of work study, 4 mile run, study for Strength of Materials

Tuesday – Physics II class, Strength of Materials exam, Physics II lab, Physics II homework, 3 mile run, study for Physics II

Wednesday – 4 hours of class, Physics II exam, 4 mile run, typical homework

Thursday – introduced to Strength of Materials project, Environmental Engr. lab, 4 hours of skiing with the Snowboard Club, typical homework

Friday – 4 hours of class, 2 hours of work study, 4 mile run, rest, ice skating

So, as you can see, it is not unusual to find yourself so mentally drained after an exam week such as this one at Lehigh.  Personally, I like to take all my stress out physically through running, skiing, or any other sports.  It’s nice to finish exam and have something to separate it from more studying, which is why I went for a run after each of my exams.  Lehigh gives you a great opportunity to find outlets like this so you’re not always focusing solely on academics.  I notice people are much more productive when they keep themselves busy with several things.  But still, I can say I probably won’t be doing much this weekend.
