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

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!

Doing Nothing All Summer Is Okay Too

It's okay to have no plans this summer.

Summer seems to roll around faster and faster every year and the question that's always asked is"what are you doing this summer?" Some people love to answer this question, maybe they have a trip planned to backpack across Europe or have a 2-week vacation in the Bahamas. My point is, everyone seems to have these big summer plans. Some people spend the whole summer traveling and are never even home, but there are always gonna be some people who, like me, have absolutely no plans this summer.

Do I wish I was traveling across Europe or spending a few weeks in the Bahamas? Sure. But in reality, my summer plans include working 5 or 6 days a week. I'm not ashamed of this and I wouldn't say I'm jealous of those traveling because I'm still determined to make the best of my summer.

There is so much pressure everywhere on Instagram and Snapchat to post all the fun things you're doing and to capture the moment. This creates the pressure that you always have to be doing something fun or spontaneous.

Summer should be whatever you want it to be. If you want to spend every day at the beach, do it. If you want to spend every day in bed or at home, that's good too. We all have different definitions of fun.

Summer has just started and everyone should make the most of their summer in their own way. My friends and I always make a bucket list of all the things we want to do by the end of the summer. None of it involves traveling or much planning, it's just little things we can do when we get bored.

Don't feel jealous when you see other people traveling this summer. Make your own fun plans, make a bucket list, and make the most of every day this summer.
