8 Things To Do Over Winter Break

For those of us who want to do something besides sleep.

8 Things To Do Over Winter Break

By now we are all on our winter breaks. Hurray! We did it! And for some of us, the break is almost a week long. I know for a fact that after the first couple days, usually after the 28th, I get bored because I have nothing to do. This year, I am determined to use my time wisely so I'm not just sitting at home the whole time. As such, I decided to make a list of some entertaining things to do.

1. Sleep in

Does this really need to be explained? Our sleep-deprived selves really just need to embrace the rest we can get now that finals are over.

2. Spend a day with Friends

Whether it is a small get together or just hanging with a friend, you definitely want to see your friends before you go back to school.

3. Go on a road trip

It could be a day trip, week trip, or even just driving around for an hour with the people you care about. This is something that can really keep you occupied and entertained for a while simply because of all the planning that goes into it.

4. See a movie

While we were all preoccupied with school, a lot of great movies came out. Go out with your friends or family and see that movie you have been waiting to see when you had time.

5. Read a book

Although you just finished reading textbooks, there are so many different genres and types of books to read. I know I have been buying more books than I can read and am going to spend the break trying to get through them all.

6. Do some crafts

There are so many different crafts that can really be useful to you in the future. Some options include painting something to hang in your room or dorm next semester or knitting a scarf for the upcoming cold weather.

7. Clean your room

Although this does not seem like the most fun activity, it certainly does help. As a commuter, I would leave stuff all over my room all last semester and not have time to clean up after myself. But now I do have time and I have started to clean my room. Having a clean room means that you now have more space and also can see your floor. For me, I just feel better with my room clean and feel comfortable bringing friends over. While it is not the best activity, it is certainly rewarding.

There are many other activities that you can do during the break but these are just the most important ones that I thought of.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
