Reading Week

There is a certain bliss that comes along with reading week, especially for those of us with very few finals (or for those of us who don't know how to study at any time other than the night before). A whole seven days with absolutely nothing to do except ignore your schoolwork and have fun. Heavenly!

Some of my favorite school days have been passed during reading week - going to the park, playing games, idling around eating ice cream and savoring our freedom down to the very last second. Reading week is probably the best invention there is. Every adventure is saved for reading week. Serene moments with friends are strongest during reading week. Reading week exudes nothing but fun, pleasure, and peace.

But now, reading week is nearly over. Now is crunch time, when we must finally write our papers and study for our exams. The fun is finished.

Or is it?

I wish everyone good luck on their finals (and papers) and, more importantly, I hope we all find the time to squeeze in some more blissful moments of fun.

We only had reading two-days, so serenity wasn't part of it at all. But now, post finals... this is bliss.

The thing I love most about spring semester reading week is studying in Bryant Park. I don't do it as often as I would like, but there's just something so relaxing about sitting outside in the beautiful weather, and it makes studying a little more bearable.

The ONE advantage of going to YU/Stern is reading week. The week that allows your to slack off most of the semester and then catch up!
