EDITORIAL: Enjoy your long break from class

Staff Editorial

The time has finally come. Finals are here, and at the end of this week we will all be home for winter break.

For students, this is the most crucial and stressful week of the semester, as we all are running around like chickens with our heads cut off to study as hard as we can for our final exams.

While we are all doing this, it is important to reflect on our semester here at Eastern.

It is pretty evident this semester flew by. For the freshmen and incoming transfer students, they began big chapters of their lives and met friends who could end up being lifelong friends.

As we all prepare and stress this week, let’s remember to avoid pushing ourselves over the edge.

We at The Daily Eastern News of course agree that finals are extremely important, but we do not want to see any of the students here at Eastern stressing so hard that it becomes too much for them.

We urge students to study and do their best, as that is all you really can do at the end of the day.

Some of us are procrastinators, which is not always bad, but we urge those kinds of students to avoid too much procrastination and at least try to get a little ahead of the game before they run out of time to study.

Other students tend to be perfectionists, the  kind who cannot afford to get anything less than an A on a test.

We urge those students to not pressure themselves too much.

Yes, it would be nice to get straight A’s, and while we know it is possible, it is also possible to make mistakes.

None of us are perfect, and we should remember that as we prepare for finals this week.

This has been a very great semester for our staff here at The Daily Eastern News, with new faces and old faces joining together to provide you all with the latest news.

We hope that you all enjoyed it as much as we have, and we look forward to seeing everyone return in January.

To those who are leaving, happy graduation, and good luck in all your endeavors.

Happy holidays, everyone.
