Fall is one of my favorite times of the year at Cornell. A special highlight of Fall for Cornell students is always the timely Fall Break. It is a great chance to put prelims, problem sets, and essays on hold, and either spend some quality time back home with family and friends or take some time to soak in the breath-taking scenery of Ithaca in the Fall.
For Canadian students like me, it is especially nice that our Thanksgiving happens to be over Fall Break. My relaxation and rest were complemented well with healthy (or maybe not so healthy) doses of stuffing, mashed potatoes, apple pie, pumpkin cheesecake, and of course – turkey.
The only problem for me was mustering up enough motivation to get back into “work-mode” after such an awesome break.
Happy belated Thanksgiving to all you Canucks!
