Homesick, but have to stay on campus for a few days after fall finals? Make the best out of it by enjoying the perks of an empty campus!
1. No parties to keep you up at 1am
If you go to a "party school" like me, loud parties on the block are a possibility on any day of the week. Take this time to enjoy your unbothered Zzz's!
2. An empty gym
Not having to wait for any machines is total bliss. And not having to worry about people seeing you fall off the treadmill! Is that second one just me?...
3. A smaller chance of seeing that person you hooked up with last month, or an annoying classmate.
It does suck being away from your friends...but nice being away from people you DON'T want to see.
4. More time to wrap your gifts in peace
If you go home for a gift-giving holiday, spending a few extra days on campus gives you time to listen to your favorite holiday music and wrap gifts without your family walking in and spoiling the surprise!
5. Lots of hours to make $$
Even if staying at school to work wasn't your choice, make the most of it by working for your biggest paycheck of the semester. Think of it as a gift to yourself!
6. Much needed quality time with yourself.
It's normal to want to hop on the next train to see your family immediately after finishing your last final, but if you can't at least try to enjoy your time alone. You worked hard for months and deserve some relaxation! If you live with roommates, finally having some true alone time may be beneficial.
7. Time to do the fun, winter-y things you missed out on during the semester
Too busy studying to go ice skating, buy some hot chocolate, or explore your local Christmas Village this year? Do it now while you still can! The holidays will be over before you know it.
