The festive season makes me sad all over

Is this time of year absolutely ridiculous for anyone else? I only went to one out of three practices this week, because I have all these GD assignments to get turned in before Thanksgiving break. And for the last month, I've been going to two practices a week, but I just do NOT have time to do any other exercise because of school. It's really starting to bum me out.
Next week is actually Thanksgiving break, when I will be out of town (I need to be as physically far away from my school as I can for a week) so no practices for me then. Then there are about three weeks left of the semester after break, during which I doubt I will have time to even eat or sleep, let alone go to practice or workout. Then it's Christmas and there is no practice for two weeks, and THEN my dad (whom I haven't seen since I moved to the US - by that time it will have been about 14 months!!) is going to be in San Francisco, so I'm going to go hang out there with him before getting back to start school on the 10th of January. I don't even want to think about how I'm going to feel, starting to exercise again after what will essentially by about two months of inactivity.
On a positive note, my eating is going really well. I went through this period of a couple of months of not eating any vegetables at all - I couldn't figure out how to cook for one person without ending up wasting a ton of food, and I still can't figure out how to take healthy food to school for lunch. There's no fridge to put stuff in, like when I worked in an office, and I'm an hour from home, so I have to take something that can be carried around in my school bag all day. Help?!
I've started eating veggies and rice for dinner every night, but if you've got some recipe ideas I'd love to hear them. Thus far all I've done is fried up a ton of veggies with coconut milk and curry powder. And, while that's totally delicious, I just ate it for five nights straight. I don't think I can do another five.
