I posted a few weeks ago that after some back and forth, I decided to sign up for a few grad school classes, and the application, registration and start of classes was all a whirlwind!
So here we are in week 4 and I have THREE midterms this week. Already! On top of that, I have an insane amount of homework for one of them (stats, ugh)! Needless to say, this is a multi-cup of coffee every day kind of week. If I could get an IV of caffeine going, I’d gladly take it! Sheba has the impression of me spot on. One eye open, one eye closed. Must. Stay. Awake.
That said, a little stress snacking may or may not be happening, since I decided to take a break and bake some sugar cookies in the middle of studying. But don’t worry, Sheba’s in on the treat-break action too. In fact, she’s the one that keeps reminding me, “hey mom, it’s time for a break!”
So while Sheba chows down on these chicken and peanut butter-flavored Dogswell Vitality treats (she’s obsessed!), I sneak a couple cookies and watch a few minutes of TV (the Six Feet Under marathon continues) on my much-needed study breaks! Just a few more days to get through until the midterm craziness is done!
What do you do on your productivity breaks? Are you in midterm-season too?
