    I know I should be relaxing but I seriously feel very unproductive... does anyone feel the same?

  3. I just finished my last final today, and I feel the same way.

    I wish I had more finals!

    Very interesting poll. Every year, I have way more vacation accrued than I'm allowed to carry-over, so I always end-up taking the last couple of weeks of the year off. Last year, the April MCAT was less than six months away, so there was plenty to do. This year, though, the Fall Semester's over, my grades are in, I've gotten my acceptance to medical school (hoo-ray!) - so, for the first time in at least two years, I should be able to truly relax. Not that I don't have work to do - I haven't dusted my house since the semester started, and I have family coming for dinner Sunday. But, it just feels like something is missing and I'm spending way too much time on SDN. I think it's from living in crisis mode for way too long - I keep thinking that there must be something - some chapter to read or some lab report to finish - that I should be doing! I feel like I'm "breaking training." :confused:

    I'm addicted to SDN now. There, I said it...
     
  9. I feel "blah". Is that an acceptable response? I had some kickass plans this break. I was planning on a little road trip through California and see some friends, but my plans fell through.

    Seems like I won't be going anywhere. I know it is silly, but does anyone else feel the compulsive need to go somewhere or do something every break too?? :rolleyes:

    As of now the "Great" people and the "Depressed" people are at a tie of 16 each. I wonder what would happen if we were to put these people in a room. :laugh:
