5 Reasons Why Winter Break Is The Best For College Kids
St. Lawrence Elementray

Most of the time, break is one of those days you can find time for yourself or even to hang out with others. In my case, I've had plenty of time to hang out with old friends and even newer ones. I get to see how many people are growing as I'm off and away from my old everyday life. But there are some things that I love about break and here are just a few things:

1. Sleeping In

If you're in college dorms like myself, you may not get that great of sleep because of the endless noises happening around. So as soon as a college kid like myself gets to go home, you get your own bed and sleep soundly or even stay up late and not regret it the next day. Sleeping in is the best, I could marry my bed at home.

2. Binge Watching Shows

I love catching up on shows that I started over Thanksgiving break but also Winter break is wonderful. Staying up late munching on some random food while binge watching Breaking Bad or Fuller House keeps me fulfilled while I'm at college and don't have time because of homework. Netflix is my drug, hey, at least it's better than some other hardcore drug?


When I have came home over break, all I can think about is how I don't have to eat the same old campus food over and over again. I can finally eat a home cooked meal and enjoy it. I don't even have to buy my own food, I get to enjoy Christmas cookies and get fat off of them. For any college student as we come back from our schools, we get to eat all the free food forever.

4. Seeing Friends & Family

While college kids like myself, love the new friends and college friends we've made we enjoy time with the family we don't see all that often that anymore. Hanging out with them, catching up, and just talking about everything we have going on in our lives. Family time is also the best about break because you get to see the people that love you unconditionally and tell them how school is going but more importantly being able to see them

5. Fewer Responsibilities

While I still have to worry about the text books I need to order or even other adult like things, I don't have to worry about homework which makes it nicer and easier before the next semester to start. Relaxing is something that could be very important to stressed out college student to not even worry about other things and take things little by little.

Those are five reasons why I love break, because it is the best break that any college kid can have and not worry about things and just enjoy it while we can until our last semester comes to close for us.

Enjoy the break, ya college kiddos!

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.
