November can’t be upon us already can it? School just stared like last week didn’t it? The semester is already more than half way over and midterms are fiercely charging toward us. In the face of this, getting a break and relaxing can in every way be more beneficial than studying at times. So take a break from all that hard work and watch a movie, eat some food, all the things here on the calendar this week.
