Oh Winter Break! One of the greatest breaks of the entire school year. Its full of holidays, good food, and relaxation. We all love going home and getting away from school if only for a few weeks. One of the down sides is that winter breaks is so long that eventually you need a break from the break. If you are feeling some kind of way about your vacation, here is the break down of the stages of winter break.
Finals are over! You have nothing else to do until next term. That means you can let loose. You finally get to go home, reconnect with old friends, eat endless home-cooked meals, and let go. This break is going to be amazing. You can finally try to get your life together before the next term starts.
Once you can finally let go you start to realized how much sleep you’ve actually missed while being away at school. No one will realize if you just slip away for a short 72 hour nap right? You can follow that by binge watching Gilmore Girls. You need to let your mind unwind and let go of everything before you try to be an actual human being again.
You start trying to call up your hometown friends and begin realizing why you went away to college in the first place. There is really nothing to do and everyone else is busy with work or isn’t even in town. You end up chilling with your younger sibling watching Christmas movies because you have nothing better to do.
You have been cooped up at home for about 2 weeks now. You have completely exhausted all the ways you had to preoccupy your time. You’re tired of Netflix, no more books to read, Facebook and Pinterest are dead, and so are you. After spending so much time around your family you feel like you need to run away. When do you get to go back to school again?
It’s Christmas!!! You get to feel your days with shopping for presents, decorating the house, looking at lights, and any other joyful holiday traditions you have. You’re surrounded by family, laughter, happiness, and good food. What more could you want?
6. Boredom: Phase 2
With the joy and excitement of Christmas over, it’s back to having nothing to do. Only a few more weeks until school starts so maybe you can start planning your new year’s resolutions or how to ace your next term of classes. Whatever you choose to do though, remember you only have a couple of weeks until Spring Term starts.
It’s finally here! Spring Term! You never thought you would be so excited to get back to the horror that is college. You will finally get to catch up with your college friends and figure out what you’re doing with the rest of the year. It will always be hard for your parents to let you leave but no need to worry. You’ll be home soon enough.
