I Don’t Need A Fancy Vacation To Have A Good Spring Break

I Don’t Need A Fancy Vacation To Have A Good Spring Break

Catch me at home, chilling and sleeping.

It’s spring break season, honestly, it’s the entire month of March. I love spring break! It’s perfect for forgetting about the struggles of school and class work, which seems to be continuously piling up.

The one thing that I do notice every year, however, is that it seems more like a competition to prove who is having a more extravagant vacation than everyone else.

I love that so many people have really great plans for the week. Most head to various beaches while some go international and some head to colder climates.

That’s great.

But since when has it becomes such a big thing to prove you had the best vacation? My social media throughout the spring break season overflows with sunny pictures and perfectly posed portraits all with almost too similar captions.

It’s kind of overwhelming to someone who isn’t going on an expensive vacation. I’m more than happy to go home, see my family and the friends I haven’t seen in a while and just take the week to actually relax.

I didn’t feel like I needed to prove I was on spring break by going on a crazy adventure.

Everyone deserves to have the spring break they want to have. It’s a well-earned vacation for hard-working students who just need a break.

Any place spring breakers go is a vacation for them. People just have different ideas for what they want their spring break to be. I’m not having any less of a spring break just because I want to go home rather than to the beach.

Some people were surprised when I told them my plans. Why is it surprising that I’m going home?

To me, spring break isn’t just about crazy, wild spring break trips. Honestly, I sleep most of my spring break trip.

I see my friends and catch up with family and people back home. No big plans other than small day trips. But to me, it’s all I want to do.

Just because I’m not spending loads of money on a beach house with other people doesn’t mean I’m having any less of a spring break than anyone else.

I couldn’t be more excited about my vacation, just like everyone should be for theirs as well, no matter what the plans are. Sring break is, after all, just an escape from torturous schoolwork and grades. So enjoy your break (safely) and rest up before going back to school!

8 Ways To Experience Summer Like Instagram Model Jay Alvarrez

Have the summer of your dreams.

Everyone has come across the gorgeous beach boy at least once while on Instagram, and if not, go do yourself a favor and follow him on Instagram: @jayalvarrez. Best known for his adventurous lifestyle and risk-taking behavior— all caught on camera and mostly edited by himself, most of which he claims they represent his dreams. With summer around the corner, I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling adventurous. This is how you can achieve that in the most Jay Alvarrez fashion possible.

1. Get out of your comfort zone!!

Calling all adrenaline junkies! This one is for you. It could be anything from skydiving to cage diving with sharks (I’ve personally done this and it’s a must.) YES, it is terrifying, but it will make your trip that much more memorable!

2. Bring your whole entourage.

Bring the whole gang with you! Nothing better than sharing everlasting memories with friends. “Remember when..." No, Jeffrey, I don’t remember. Jk, not really though.

3. Go somewhere topical!!!

Where the water is as blue as the sky on a cloudless day and you can catch a golden brown tan. Who needs clothes when you can just permanently live in your swimsuit? I don't know about you but sounds like heaven to me.

4. Eat like an island prince/princess...

Mmm, doesn’t that look delicious! I’m not just talking about the food.

5. Ohana means family.

There is no better way to get a sense of another one's culture than by becoming friends with others from another culture! Mix in with the locals and always support local businesses no matter where you are in the world. Take it from the man himself—his contractor from Hawaii now lives with him. You can follow him at @charleythecontractor on Instagram.

6. Attend a festival.

Festival season is upon us and an absolute must to attend! Dust off your flower crowns and get your glittery ass to a festival.

7. Have no regrets, whatsoever.

Something spontaneous you really want to do? Do it! You want no regrets thinking back on your summer vacay.

8. Take photos and videos!

We were blessed with technology, now is the time to use it. Jay Alvarrez makes thousands of dollars from doing exactly this! His job is a constant holiday! Go check out his new video on YouTube about how he got to be where he is today. Damn, and here I am worrying about my midterms.
