Family, Fun, and Flaw Questions: How to Best Spend your Christmas Vacation

Congratulations! If you’re reading this, you’re part of the select collection of humans who survived the apocalypse. You must be the best of the best; simply the most resilient and fittest creatures on the planet. It’s time to start repopulating.

Although the dust is beginning to settle, the chaos and torment isn’t over just yet. Unfortunately, another challenging date lies ahead: February 9th. The February LSAT is just about six weeks away, and, like the mighty cockroach, LSAC survived the end of days.

Christmastime provides a great opportunity to really make some headway on your LSAT preparation, especially if you’re a full-time student. Some of you may be so keen to utilize the holiday vacation that you’re even planning to study on Christmas day. If you’re one of those people, then you’re in luck, because we’ve got some tips.

First and foremost, contact your family doctor to seek a referral for a psychiatrist with several years of experience dealing with patients who have obsessive-compulsive tendencies.

After you’ve set up an appointment with your shrink, make sure to open up your Christmas presents as soon as possible. It won’t be easy to read about 16th century art history while you’re daydreaming about the wondrous array of items waiting for you under the tree.

Unfortunately, Christmas illnesses are a common occurrence. The weather’s cold, the nog is flowing, and immune systems don’t work as well as they should. So drink lots of water and take plenty of vitamin C to keep it running strong.

So unwrap those presents and chow down on that traditional holiday meal of orange juice, Airborne packets, and turkey before you start studying so you don’t have any distractions. After all, if you’re a masochist, you might as well be a productive one. And some time away from the LSAT, actually enjoying your life, will do you a world of good.

In the end, it’s important to make the most of the time off from school or work this Christmas break, because as soon as the New Year gets going, February 9th will arrive before you know it. Though burying your head in an LSAT book might not be the most exciting way to spend the holidays, it could at least be a useful excuse to get out of going to that dreaded Christmas party your kooky uncle throws ever year.
