How is it already March? Yes, January took forever, but it seems like February flew by! March is a crazy month for college students. We have all the excitement of things like spring break and spring fling, but then there is the other side... midterms and the realization that your semester is halfway over. If these thought get you both excited and anxious don't worry- you are not alone! Follow this list of ten things you should do this month to help March be your best month of 2018 yet!
1. Relax, relax, oh and... relax!
Spring Break is this month! We are all excited to finally have some time off of school. Whether you are going home or to the beach enjoy your time off and relax. This is the last break before finals and while there are a million things to think about between this point and the end of the year, take this break as an opportunity to let go of all the things that stress you out.
2. Unplug for a day.
Get outside and explore. Forget about social media for one day. Make some memories that only the people with you know about. Have a relaxing day that doesn't revolve around getting the perfect Instagram-worthy picture.
3. Spring cleaning.
It's that time of year again... When March arrives, it also means it is time for spring cleaning. Take the time to dust, vacuum, and polish everything in your home/apartment/dorm. However, it goes beyond just the dusting. Go through and get throw away or donate items you don't need. It will make moving out at the end of the year easier and your living space will be decluttered.
4. Paint your nails.
Try a new, fun color for spring break. A mani/pedi, whether done in a salon or in the comfort of your own home, is a great way to relax and hang out with your friends. Life is better when you have your nails painted!
5. Read a book.
Do you have a book that you keep telling yourself you are going to read... and then never do. Make sure to take it with you when you travel for spring break. A book is the perfect escape from the craziness of the week!
6. Go to office hours.
The semester is halfway over, and it would be good to check in and see how you are doing grade-wise. There are not many opportunities to improve your grade in class left, so it is important to stay on top of things. Go to office hours, see what you grade is, and if you are unhappy with it, now is the time to change.
7. Host a Spring Spa Night
Get some of your friends together and celebrate finishing your midterms that resulted in (hopefully) great grades! Do facials, give each other a mani/pedi, watch a chick flick, and eat way too much pizza and ice cream!
