How To Get Ready For Spring Break In Just Two Weeks

The best part of spring semester is coming up, spring break. The most popular weeks for spring break are coming up in two to three weeks, and my guess is that everyone has been slacking off on getting "spring break ready." It doesn't matter if being ready means having your spring break bod, being caught up with school, having enough money to go, or anything else that could get you ready. Chances are you're not ready yet, so here's how to get there.

You don't want last minute work after spring break

Make sure you take a look at your calendar and look back through your syllabus for each class. (If you still have it that is.) You don't want to come back from spring break to find out that you have a paper, project or test in one of your classes that you didn't even know about. No one wants to do any kind of work before, during, or after their vacation, so plan ahead. Do some work during the two weeks prior to your break so that you have papers, projects, readings, and studying done ahead of time.

You don't want to be broke during spring break

Spring break is expensive. Whether you're going to Panama City Beach, going on a cruise or just making a "staycation" with friends you're bound to be spending your cash. (Unless you got lucky and your parents paid for everything.) Take the time leading up to spring break to eat out less and spend less money on impulse purchases. Look at your budget, and decide how much you can save within the next couple of weeks by cutting back. Put something in savings, and don't touch it until you get to your destination. You might even want to start your spring cleaning and try to sell old clothes, books, trinkets, etc to get some extra spending money.

You also don't want to be broke after spring break

Make sure you set a limit before you go. What is and isn't paid for? What do you plan on doing during your vacation? Set aside a food budget and an alcohol budget. You might think that you can include the two in the same category, but you can't. It's not a good idea to sacrifice a meal so that you can buy a couple more daiquiris or shots for the group. Set a total limit of how much you can spend because you don't want to get back and remember that rent is due only to find out that you have $6 in your account.

You don't quite have your spring break bod

So, you've been slacking off on your work out plan since January, and now you've realized that you only have a couple of week before you leave? Don't worry. The point of spring break is to relax and have fun. Step your game up for the next two weeks. Stick to your work out plan and remember to eat right. Put the Girl Scout cookies and the ice cream down, and work your butt of until you leave. Will you get the same results you would have if you started earlier and kept with it? No, but you will feel like you tried. Just remember that your friends won't care what you look like in a bathing suit as long as you chip in for gas and pay for your part of the trip.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue
