December Stress

When students think about the most stressful time of the school year, most of them would probably consider it to be during March exams; however, I would disagree. To me, the most stressful part of the school year would be the weeks between Thanksgiving break and winter break. This is a very hectic time as teachers are all frantically trying to force major assignments while students are counting down the days until they can be away from school for two blissful weeks.

The first couple of weeks back from winter break tend to be rather unproductive because no one wants to be in school or do any work. Instead, after Thanksgiving, everyone is still trying to get back into the swing of things after a long week off while counting down the days until winter break comes along.

However, then the final week before winter break comes and teachers realize that they need some grades for the second marking period. All of a sudden, students’ assignment pages are full of tests, papers, and presentations in all of their classes. Rather than being able to enjoy the holiday spirits that are being spread, students have to crack down on all their work they’ve been given. Of course, many of us have trouble working when winter break is just around the corner. Instead, we stumble throughout the week and into winter break.

Many of us barely make it through this workload just before winter break, and the problem is that it makes up a lot of our second quarter grades, and subsequently affects our first semester grades. Then, of course the question stands: how can this be avoided?

First of all, as we have just come back from Thanksgiving break, most of us are not happy to be back in school.  We have ignore that fact, however, and actually get back into the swing of things and actually start concentrating on work. We also can’t just blow off the last week of school. While it’s hard to sit still and focus in class while imagining what you could be doing instead once winter break comes, it’s necessary for us to do so. I’m sure all of us will be able to manage the fifteen days of school we have this December and finish with flying colors.  Also, we must remember that there’s always the chance of a few snow days to lessen the burden of classes in December.
