5 Stages of Spring Break as Told By the Minions

5 Stages Of Spring Break According To The Minions

Sometimes, those weird little yellow people are more relatable than actual humans


For many colleges, this time of year brings with it Spring Break. Whether students spend it at home, visiting friends, or in some warm destination, it is a well-deserved break from the jam-packed, fast-paced Spring Semester. In most schedules, this mid-semester break is the only day off in the entire semester. In comparison to Fall with its many breaks (Labor Day, sometimes Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break quickly followed by Christmas), the Spring can both fly by and suck the life out of even the most diligent students. By the time March rolls around, college students daydream (and real dream) about time away from campus - and any time of sleep and relaxation will do.

And while there may be a variety of ways to pass this wonderful week, there are certain emotions that are universal of the Spring Break experience. No one captures these emotions better (or cuter) than the Minions. While their voices and garbled speech may being incredibly annoying to watch in the movies, their genuine emotions and expressive (giant) faces capturing the universal Spring Break experience.

1. The "Oh my God" I finally get to LEAVE moment.


Wave goodbye to friends, give a goodbye to your favorite professor. And quickly and quietly back out of the room before anyone can stall your escape to freedom and relaxation.

2. The "I haven't see any form of entertainment other than assigned documentaries and Internet videos in two months" moment.


Whether going to a concert, going to a movie theater, or laying in bed with a Netflix binge - everyone takes some time to watch some non-academic entertainment during Spring Break. It is the universal way to relax, and the minions are all of us when our favorite celebrity comes on screen or stage.

3. The "I deserve a bath" and/or the "I'm going swimming like now" moment.

While slightly diverse depending on locale, the general sentiment is the same. Whether going sunbathing or just taking a good 'ole relaxing bath in the tub, this minion has relaxation down to an art form.

4. The "SHOPPING" moment. Enough said.

Whether going shopping for souvenirs on a vacation or dragging a parent to the mall to buy summer clothes (with the "I didn't get to go on vacation" excuse) almost everyone takes advantage of the sudden appearance of clothes and sporting gear that reminds us that this cold weather has to break eventually.

5. The "I'm finally in a bed bigger than a Twin XL" moment.


The most common complaint I hear from my friends about their college dorms or apartments (especially if they can't furnish it themselves) is that the beds suck. Too hard. Too soft. And always too small. The best part of coming home is that it's my bed. There's nothing better. (Except maybe being on vacation in an oversized hotel bed you don't have to make yourself.) But either way, a bed to spread out in is the biggest necessity of a relaxing spring break.

Whatever your plans are, I hope that you enjoy your spring break!

Your 2019 Spring Break Packing List

It is coming up so you better get packing!


Are you ready for the sun and the sand? I am! However, I constantly procrastinate packing. It seems to be a lot of work and without a list, it feels impossible. So, I have put off my procrastination and made a pretty detailed 2019 spring break packing list!

1. Bathing suits

You know you need them! I suggest going and finding the perfect fit for you. Swimsuits can be tricky. However, everybody is a bathing suit body! So, go get a suit so you can go get a tan!

2. Sun screen!

You need it, so get it! Trust me, you do not want to get burnt. It could ruin your entire spring break. So lather that sunscreen on and hit the beach!

3. Shorts

You can dress them down or dress them up! Plus, you won't be hot. Long pants at the beach? Nope!

4. Sun glasses

Keep those eyes protected! The sun can damage your vision, so do not risk it. Also, with the right sunglasses, you can make quite the fashion statement.

5. Sweatshirt

The beach can get a bit chilly at night or if you aren't going far south. So, you might want to be prepared. Also, you don't wanna be cold all day after being in the water!

6. Pants

Like the sweatshirt sometimes you just want to be warm. I would suggest a loose beach look instead of jeans, but you can make jeans beachy too! just be prepared in case you have a chilly day,

7. Pajamas

You have to sleep, or at least try too. Also, you might want a lazy day! don't forget to pack something to sleep or chill in.

8. Beach towel

You need something to dry off with! Also if you want a good tan a beach towel is perfect to lay on when on the beach. you need it, and they can be pretty cheap.

9. Something to hold water

Like a water bottle or Yeti cup. Hydration is important when it is hot outside. You can easily get dehydrated on the beach so make sure you have something that allows you to have cold water constantly

10.  Hat

The sun is not great for your skin. So, having a hat is pretty important. Keep your skin healthy by keeping in the shade!

Spring break is a great time where you get to relax and not worry about school. If you pack right then you can avoid unnecessary stress. Have fun and be safe. Try to actually relax and take a week to treat your self!
