12 Things To Do Over Spring Break This Year

You know, when you aren’t working or doing the homework teachers so cruelly assign.

12 Things To Do Over Spring Break This Year

Spring Break will be here in a matter of days, and we are all ready to collapse onto our pillow-laden beds and wake up three days later. However, what are you going to do with those leftover days before break ends? Here are a few ideas to keep your break full of excitement:

1. Bake something new.

Try making donuts at home, or maybe this Maple Belgian Waffle Cake. OMG.

2. Watch all the Tina Fey and/or Amy Poehler movies.

Or just watch Parks and Rec and 30 Rock. Or both.

3. Try to DIY something you’ve pinned on Pinterest.

Emphasis on something, not things. If you think you’re going to complete every project you’ve liked, I guarantee that you will look at your 500+ pin board, stare at it for two minutes, and close your laptop and take a nap instead. START SMALL.

4. Buy something from ban.do.

They’re my favorite brand, so just do it.

5. Go on a road trip.

Drive to the biggest city near you, or if you’re already cosmopolitan, step outside! Take advantage of the coolest places near you before the time comes to move out of your parent’s house.

6. Challenge yourself to eat nothing but clean foods for the whole break.

Just kidding. Go eat a cookie.

7. Go to the library.

Read those books that have been piling up during the semester.

8.Help somebody else.

You don’t have to formally volunteer if that’s not your thing, but check to see if those neighbors need help moving in, or if there’s anything your grandparents need done around the house.

9. Choreograph a dance.

You might be laughing, but I guarantee you aren’t having as much fun as I am.

10. Clean your room and clear out your closet.

It. Feels. So. GOOD.

11. Try a new workout routine.

Try Zumba or Hot Yoga. Heck, pull out your old Wii and unlock a new dance routine on Just Dance.

12. Update your resume and get those internships.

Once you’ve cleaned up your resume and written a cover letter, apply, apply, apply. Even if you don’t think you’re gonna get it, it can’t hurt to get your name out there.

Buck up, kiddos! Just a little bit longer (cue the Jonas Brothers) when you get back to campus.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
