50 Things to Do When You're Bored and Completely Alone
Josh

For people like me, spring break is a time where you come home and have absolutely nothing to do. Your parents work all day and you're either sibling-less or your siblings have already moved out. Most of your friends are on the semester system, so your breaks don't line up. You're bored and completely alone.

Although while being alone sounds boring, sometimes it's nice to just hang out with yourself. There's a plethora of unique and creative things you can do. Netflix marathon? That's overdone. Doing something productive or worthwhile? You do enough of that in school anyway. Whatever the reason is for you being alone, I have assembled a list of unique things to do to cure your boredom.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.
