Q: How do you keep your sanity and your energy to push through to the end of an otherwise brutal and dismal semester? Thanksgiving ruined me. I sat in a stupor for 4 days, half forgetting the semester still had its last kick. I feel hopeless and spent. What tricks can I use to make these last days actually worthwhile. I don't want to just gasp to the finish line, I want to use the time left to add some value to my classes.
