Unfortunately, since it’s the week before finals here at OU, relaxing isn’t on our agenda quite yet. Although, we do get to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving feast at home, we still have finals in the back of our minds, which means we can’t officially relax until winter break hits.

Clean your room. Even better, help your parents around the house or decorate a bit for the holidays!
