Maybe you’ve noticed it, too. Your sleep schedule is destroyed. The bags under your eyes have become permanent.
Every yawn and body ache is just a reminder of how badly you want to go back to bed.
Every time you finish an assignment three more pop up — like you’re fighting a hydra just to get your work done.
We at The Gannon Knight feel your pain. Not all of us are journalism majors.
Kyle, our Features editor, studies mechanical engineering.
Olivia, the Arts and Leisure editor, is a pre-optometry student and takes nine credits of science.
Lydia, our copy editor, is taking gross anatomy this semester in the physician assistant program, which is a feat all its own.
And the rest of our staff knows the meaning of stress too well, with demands to produce original content from all of our professors and adhere to different styles for each project.
Stress doesn’t do anyone a favor, especially your immune system.
We know what it’s like to pull all-nighters — we do it every Tuesday night. It’s important to take care of yourself so you don’t burn out before spring break.
Seriously. Take a 20-minute break as you’re cranking out your lab reports to talk to your roommates or grab a coffee, and maybe follow that espresso with some water so you don’t get dehydrated.
Break is almost here, and before you know it, you can board your flight to Cancun — or Mom and Dad’s Hotel and Lodging — to relax for a few days.
It will be worth it, even if it doesn’t seem that way now, with less than two weeks between you and freedom.
