20 Fun Activities To Relax With Over Spring Break!

As a fellow college student, I completely understand the stress of midterms, exams, and last-minute assignments. We count down to break as if were receiving a winning lottery ticket. Although the excitement for break typically gets ruined by online quizzes, "over break" assignments, and group projects, you should still find time to enjoy the spring fun. Relaxing mentally is just as important as studying hard throughout the first half of the semester. According to the ADAA, 80 percent of people say that they frequently or sometimes experience daily stress. At the University of Virginia's College at Wise, stress is one of the top reasons for counseling services.

Here are a few ideas to actually "take a break" from the stress and time commitment to college.

1. Kayaking

My favorite places in Virginia are Fountain Head and Black Water River.

2. Hiking

My favorite places in Virginia are HumpBack Mountain and Appalachian National Scenic Trail.

3. Picnic and Study

4. Rope Climbing

My favorite places in Virginia are Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium and Bear Mountain Zip Lines.

5. Fishing

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.

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.
