After an insanely mild December, a crazy cold winter storm, and the groundhog declaring it isn’t winter anymore, many college students are longing for spring break; the prospect a whole week off from classes, spent at the beach, not worrying about tests or papers, and enjoying the much needed sun is currently taunting most students. As the cold weather seems to drag on and the papers keep coming, here are 11 signs that you are in desperate need of spring break:
1. You’ve already missed several classes and this semester only started a month ago
There have been several days already where you just couldn’t deal with another boring lecture, so you opted for a long nap filled with dreams of the beach.
2. You spend all your free time day dreaming about the beach
Forget studying for that major art history test! All of your free time has been spent planning out spring break outfits and trying to get a tan before the beach trip.
3. You’ve started online bathing suit shopping
You’ve already started looking at that super cute Triangl bikini, and even though it still might be freezing at a beach trip in March, you’ve decided to order three.
4. You just can’t handle the dining hall anymore
A whole week away from the disgusting food of the dining hall? Yes please! You’ve spent way too many nights eating just cereal and a sandwich that you’re practically begging for spring break to arrive faster.
5. You started planning your break before the semester even started
Even your subconscious knew you wouldn’t be prepared to handle the spring semester, so you started your spring break plans at the beginning of the winter holidays and have been counting down ever since!
6. Every assignment makes you want the beach
You’ve started fantasizing about the beach while simultaneously drowning in papers and pop quizzes. Who could possibly be focusing on modern western civilization when spring break is just around the corner? Definitely not you.
7. The cold just needs to go somewhere
And those random days of 70 degree weather aren’t helping your spring fever; they’re just making you long for a week at the beach even more.
8. You wear shorts on the days it’s supposed to be 50 degrees just to feel like spring
Who cares if your legs are frozen by the time you walk across campus? 50 degrees is basically a sign that warmer weather is on its way.
9. You’ve already worn your Jacks or Birks at least once this semester
Your life motto is currently: If you dress like it is spring, it will be spring soon.
10. You’ve already started a spring break playlist
A playlist filled with sunshiny, bubblegum pop and chill indie tunes is a must-have when it comes to a beach trip over spring break, and you haven’t wasted one second in coming up with the perfect mix!
11.You have a spring break countdown in your planner
It’s totally normal to have a running tally of how many days left until the glorious break in classes, and the constant reminder is motivation to stay on track with your work!
