What Are Your Plans For Spring Break?

Make your spring break memorable!

What Are Your Plans For Spring Break?
Greater Albany Public Schools

Hello everyone! Spring Break season is here! Chances are if you're in college right now, your spring break is either this week or next week. It's crazy to think about how fast time goes by. It feels like the spring semester just started not too long ago yet here we are. I hope everyone has a nice, fun, and safe spring break!

With that said, what do you have planned for spring break? Every year I realize more and more that it's important to plan out your spring break. If you don't, then you'll probably end up with an extreme case of FOMO (fear of missing out)! You could plan a trip with friends or family, visit a friends or family, look into an alternative spring break program, and more. It might be too late to plan these things now for this spring break but think about it some time before your next spring break.

Of course you can always opt to just go home and relax or picking up some extra shifts at your job if a vacation isn't in the cards for you this spring break. That's perfectly fine! I don't know about you but I have social media and seeing people getting ready for their trips makes me so jealous! I mean I'm typing this as there's some crazy nor'easter going on outside. A getaway from here would be nice.

Although I'm not going anywhere for spring break, I sort of have ideas for what I'm going to be doing which I completely recommend! Plan out your spring break even if you're not going on a trip. Maybe because I'm a planner and I always like to have some type of plan, it just feels better planning out all of free time I'm going to have for this whole week. I don't want to end up being too bored during my break and wish I planned to go somewhere so it's better that I do productive things and catch up with my friends that I haven't really been able to see during the semester. Don't get me wrong though, I love sleeping in and binge watching shows even though these are not the most productive things to do. I think it's good to have a balance though. After all, you are on a break! Make sure you do something you usually don't get to do during a busy week in the semester. Go watch that movie everyone is talking about, go to that restaurant you've always wanted to try. Most importantly, take some time for yourself. Self-care is essential and we don't always have the time to do it during the semester even though we should always make time for it. I have some friends traveling during spring break and I'm excited to hear all about trips. Hopefully that will be me next spring break. I'm clearly trying to speak it into existence haha.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
