7 fun ideas for spring break

I don't know about you but I am looking forward to being done with the inconsistent weather- cold then warm then cold again hopefully by spring break it will be a little warmer. Not only am I over the weather but I am in need of a break. Spring break can't come soon enough. I am excited to just to relax and enjoy some family and friend time. Over spring break I plan to be outside reading a book or maybe even just the slightest bit of sunshine. I am also hoping to see a movie or go on a fun adventure. What are your plans over spring break? Here are 10 inexpensive ideas to enjoy this break.

Go outside

Take advantage if it is nice out to get some sunshine, it feels like we haven't seen the sun in five months. But sit and enjoy a book or take a walk. Go play baseball or soccer with friends. Just be outside (If it's not snowing out. Let's hope that won't be the case.

Treat your self and go get your nails done

It is always feels good to go get something done, whether that be nails or hair done.

Go see a movie

There are tons of good movies coming out around March/April. If it is a rainy day this is the perfect thing to do!

Take a road trip with friends

I have always wanted to do this. It's a way of not only having fun with your friends but getting together and making memories that will last a life time.

Spend time with family

Make sure at least some of your spring break is spent with your family, as spending time with your friends are important so is family. I want to go see a movie with them or just hang out and play board games all day.

Go shopping

This is my favorite thing to do during spring break because one all the winter stuff will be on sale and two the spring stuff will be out. It's very exciting.

Take an unexpected adventure

Rather that be take trip to the city or try a new food place. DO IT. I think it will be so worth it. Try something you haven't done before. Think outside the box this spring break.

Spend the day In the city

See what's in town, maybe there is monuments in your city or fun things to do. I live near St.Louis and there are tons of places here that I love to visit such as the Arch, the St.Louis Zoo and the famous Fitiz's!

Go out with friends

It's always good to enjoy some time with friends over break rather that go be see a movie, go out to dinner or something that you and your friends enjoy doing together!

 Relax!

It's a week-long break, you don't have to do anything but sleep and watch movies. That's perfectly acceptable! I like to sometimes chill after a long couple of months at school. A break is sometimes much needed.

These are just some ideas that you can do that are simple and cheaper than going to the beach or a large vacation. Being on break doesn't always have to be about going somewhere it's about how you spend the time you have and who you spend it with! Make it count.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday.
