9 Things To Do During Your Interim Free Time At Wofford

Interim at Wofford is great for so many reasons. The free time we get, however, can be a blessing or a curse.

9 Things To Do During Your Interim Free Time At Wofford
Everett Leigh

The most wonderful time of the year is now over, or is it? We're back from break, and we've officially started Interim at Wofford. This year is my first Interim, and I already can see why so many people are attracted to Wofford because of it. We all go to a class for three hours a day, and then we're done. Whether it is the Vegan Yogi or the Knitting class, they all give us a new hobby for the month of January.

However, one thing I've noticed is that we all have so much free time. Those words didn't even go together last semester! I have been online shopping, napping, and going out just to fill my time. But if I did this all month, I'd get soo bored. So, I've made a list of thing to do or places to go during Interim so that maybe I won't go to Krispy Kreme twice in one day—yikes.

1. Tour around Spartanburg

During our busier semesters, we don't really get to leave Wofford that much. But Glendale Shoals is about 10 minutes away, and it is absolutely beautiful. There's also really nice murals all around town, we just have to find them. You may even find a secret study spot for next semester! #perks

2. Go to Pretty Place

Pretty Place is such a gorgeous chapel overlooking the mountains in Cleveland, SC, an hour and thirty minutes from Wofford. Go here after your class gets out or even on the weekend, either way, Pretty Place is a beautiful place to go to get some fresh air and relax.

3. Movie Night with your friends

If you aren't feeling a night out—face it, we all need a break sometimes— consider a night in with some of your friends. Order pizza, do face masks and have a Netflix movie marathon. Believe me when I say that nothing is better to pass the time than that.

4. Take a day trip to a city close by

Seriously, we have a whole month of free time, we may as well take advantage of that and take other day trips. Greenville, Charlotte, and Asheville are all within two hours of Wofford. That opens up so many doors and memory-making adventures.

5. Enjoy the downtime

Maybe with all the hustle and bustle you might wanna take a break from it all. Take a break for yourself. Lay in bed, read a book, or go grab yourself a hot now donut from Krispy Kreme—you won't regret it.

6. Have a game night with your friends

Do I even need to elaborate when I say Cards Against Humanity? It's a great game night, and you'll get to know your friends on the deepest level.

7. Take a nap

You know what? Napping is king at college, even now when we have nothing to do. Take that nap, you deserve it.

8. Go to Hatcher Garden in Spartanburg

Little did I know, Spartanburg has a Woodland Preserve in town, only 2 miles from Wofford. If you're in the mood to go see some natural beauty, outside of Wofford, then take a mini trip here.

9. Find a new Netflix series

You know what, we have all the time in the world during Interim, why not use it for something we all enjoy? Binge-watch all the shows you want and feel completely guilt-free, knowing you don't have any work to worry about.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.
