Productive Thanksgiving Break Timewasters

Thanksgiving break is a good time to catch up on all those things you meant to do over the course of the semester. Here’s are a few things to keep you busy after stuffing your face with turkey (or tofurkey.)

– Improve your grammar. Here are some good resources from the American Copy Editors Society.  If you’re feeling really bold, try out some of their grammar quizzes.

– Are you stuck trying to hammer out those final papers and projects? Check out Elizabeth Gilbert’s talk “Your elusive creative genius.”

– Check out Lifehacker U if you can’t stand being away from the classroom. They provide links for a number of free online courses in areas like science, finance, math and numerous other areas.

– Catch up on some podcasts. Business Insider has a list of some informative and interesting ones.

– I love exploring the NPR Music site. They have great concerts, interviews, and interesting articles about a wide variety of music genres.


Happy Thanksgiving. Go enjoy some mashed potatoes.
