Spring Break Comes At The Best Time Of The Year Possible

Spring Break Comes At The Best Time Of The Year Possible


Halle Blum

Spring break comes at the perfect time in the school calendar. Right after first semester ends, we celebrate and go on winter break. This is often a time of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. We prepare for second semester, which will be inevitably harder, longer, and if you go to school in Michigan, colder.

Upon return, syllabus week makes you believe that this semester might not be awful. But, as you get into the middle of the semester, it happens.

All of a sudden, you're swamped with essays, cramming for midterms, and praying that your 9 AM gets canceled just to ensure you can get more than 5 hours of sleep.

We’ve all been there, struggling to keep your eyes open during lecture, or even going to sleep early on a Friday night instead of going out.

Spring break comes at our breaking point. By this, I don’t mean a point where we get off from school and take a break, I mean our literal breaking point. The last moments before we physically and mentally cannot go on with the semester.

For a college kid, there are a few options for how to spend this time off. You can either go to a tropical place, probably with the rest of Greek life, and party for 7 days straight. Although this option won’t provide you with the hours of sleep you’ve been deprived of, or the moments of quiet and relaxation, it will provide you with incredibly fun times with your best friends.

If you are like me, you’ll be spending this time off with friends, while also relaxing. If you don’t plan on partying and binge drinking, consider doing something you wouldn’t have the time to do while in school.

For me, it will be reading a book that has been sitting on my shelf since September and binge-watching Netflix. Whatever you end up doing over your break, make sure you take time to do whatever makes you happy, you deserve it!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
