Well I guess you deserve a break, especially during major holiday like Xmas. Don't feel guilty just because you didn't study at all during holiday. Best advice: enjoy your holiday and you'll feel refreshed afterward. No need to push yoursef studying right now, as you're losing your quality time with your family while at the same time you just can't start studying.

When you're ready to study, maybe choosing a easier subject will make the transition easier.

yes, I think there are lots of us with the same problem... completely screws up the schedule and stresses you out cause ur not studying, so you end up stressing while trying to relax

LOL! Your post made me laugh. I've been thrown off pretty much this whole month also. You're worried about only 3 days? Lucky you.
