Finals are exhausting…and seem endless. With one more week to work through, spring break is the light at the end of the tunnel and a much needed break from the pile of books sitting on my desk. I’m heading to Portland to catch some fresh air and an ocean view. My biggest suggestion: drop the books and go on an adventure (catching up on those ZZZs is a great idea too!). Denver and the Rocky Mountains offer plenty of options to play, enjoy the sun, and refresh the mind and body. Whether you like skiing or climbing, good coffee shops or walking paths, take some time to regain your energy and come back prepared for the Spring academic quarter.
