3 Things To Do Before Jan Term Ends

Here are some things you have to try before spring semester begins.

3 Things To Do Before Jan Term Ends
Sarah Vick

For those of us with a January term, the end is near. Spring semester – and all the responsibilities that follow suit – is looming on the horizon.

In Jan term, students typically have the option to take a departmental or experimental course, study abroad or squeeze in an internship over the span of just one month.

Colleges with January terms typically operate by a 4-1-4 academic calendar; they have a spring and fall semester with four months of classes and one month of a class or internship.

Here are some staple things that you simply must do before Jan term comes to a close!

1. Make new friends.

You have a lot more time to interact with people than you do during the the fall and spring semesters. First-year students are often required to spend their Jan terms on campus, so this is an ideal time to bond with peers from your year.

2. Go somewhere you’ve never gone before.

Whether it’s another country or a state park nearby you’ve never visited, now is the time to explore!

3. Try something new.

January can get pretty dull, so spice it up! Maybe even literally. It could be anything from trying sriracha for the first time to performing karaoke.

Have fun branching out as Jan term blooms into spring!

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
