January means a new year. And new goals.
However, it also means waiting out the dreaded winter season in favor of beach days and road trips. Can't have a little fun without a little misery first, right?
1. It's cold.
Who wants to do anything when it's cold? Ski? That costs money (most) college student don't have. I'll take Netflix and a heated blanket anyday over freezing a limb off.
2. There's no holidays.
Well except Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I mean I guess you could bake a cake in honor of him if you wanted to. He did help shape our nation's history. But the next holiday that involves free food is most likely in April. Easter where are you?
It's pretty and fun to make snow angels in, but eventually just gets boring and ruins plans. We pray for May this time of year.
4. The holidays are over.
The Christmas lights are gone off houses, and Christmas music is a thing of the past. Not to mention discounted chocolate is hard to find. Bah humbug.
5. Christmas Break is over.
That means back to the daily grind. Papers, exams to study for, and dorm food. Hello spring semester.
