Quiz: Are you actually in school or still on winter vacation?

Erica Lee/File

We’ve officially completed our first week of instruction for second semester — arguably the hardest four days of the last month. While many of us, perhaps for the first time in the last five weeks, had to pick up a pencil, read a textbook and think about where to eat lunch, the rest of us were waiting for this week as soon as last semester’s finals were over. Take the Clog’s quiz to find out whether or not you’re still on vacation, sleeping on the beach with palm trees swaying in the distance.

  1. Which song has been stuck in your head this week?
    1. Camila Cabello’s “Havana”
    2. Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do”
    3. Post Malone’s “rockstar”
    4. Johann Strauss II’s “An der schönen blauen Donau, Op.314”
  2. If you weren’t in class this week, where would you rather be?
    1. Moffitt Library, duh.
    2. Obviously the Galápagos islands. I can’t believe this is even a question.
    3. Brewed Awakening — I could use some java right about now.
    4. At home and in my bed, sleeping without five alarms.
  3. What has been your go-to snack the last couple of days?
    1. An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
    2. Carrots and hummus — I’m trying to stick to my new and improved healthy diet.
    3. Fritos — I always have a bag in my backpack.
    4. A cold-pressed juice — I saved all of my money for three bottles a week.
  4. Which outfit was your favorite this week?
    1. My PJ’s; I would’ve preferred to stay in them.
    2. The one I wore on the first day of school, right off the runway.
    3. My sweats and a hoodie.
    4. The one that was all black, like my soul.
  5. What would you say your spirit animal for the past week has been?
    1. A panda; I just want to sleep. Please.
    2. Lion, all day every day.
    3. Some type of bird.
    4. I can’t choose one — I was all over the place this week.
  6. When do you wish the next break would come?
    1. Oh my goodness, right now.
    2. Maybe in two weeks?
    3. Whenever we get that one week off. In March, I think?
    4. Never. I love school and don’t want a break.
    1. You’re definitely still on vacation. You couldn’t focus in class because you were too busy dreaming about the Whistler slopes. The next day you couldn’t focus because you were scuba diving off the Amalfi Coast. We’re not sure you’re going to leave vacation mode anytime soon, but to be honest, we totally understand. Vacation. Is. Life.
    2. You never really were on vacation, even during the last month. You’ve been doing practice sets all break and this week was what you’ve been waiting for. You couldn’t wait to get your syllabi and read them late into the night, in true Bear fashion. The grind really never stops.
    3. You’re in the middle. This week was a little rough because you’d understandably rather be on break, but you should be back on track by next week. It takes you time to transition from break to school, but you’re kind of glad to be back in Berkeley now.
    4. We’re not really sure where you are. In one class, you’re fully engaged while in the other, your mind keeps wandering and thinking about stars in our galaxy. You were caught sleeping at a frat party, so it’s not entirely clear what you’re up to and if you’ll get out of this weird phase before the semester’s over.
