5 Reasons Why You Should Spend Spring Break Alone

Vacation alone is just as fun!

5 Reasons Why You Should Spend Spring Break Alone

Spring break is over, and I am sad. But I am also glad to be back in an environment that I can trust completely which is my school and my dorm room. As you all probably know, I went to the Bahamas on a cruise ship for four days and that was my spring break and I went by myself. I know this is a really unconventional way to vacation, but it does have its charm.

1. Just to hear people say: “OMG, you are so independent!”

I am not kidding you, that is the most I have gotten since I told people I was going along for my spring break trip. The thing people ask about spring break is where are you going and who are you going with. I honestly love the reaction when I told them that I am going alone. It is fun, you should try it sometimes.

2. Just to do whatever I want

Going with a group is nice, because you have many people to depend on, but it comes with the disadvantages too. You always have to accommodate everyone’s wants and needs. Let’s be honest, it is impossible to not sacrifice anything when you are in a group. But when you are alone, you can go anywhere or not go anywhere to your liking, on your own time. There is no compromising.

3. Just to get out of your comfort zone

Going into a different environment alone and going with someone is completely different. If you go with someone, even one, you still have something familiar on your side. And going to a new place along really pushes you to deal with completely strange things and forces you to fend for yourself.

I know it’s hard, but it is necessary because nobody will be there for you forever. Sooner or later you need to learn to be alone even just for a little bit. You need to know how to live without anyone around, to make your own decisions.

4. Just to not share a room

I know most of college students have roommates. As much as I love my roommate, it is great to have my own room and bathroom. I do anything in the room when I am along, I can keep the TV on until 2 a.m. in the morning or go to bed at 9 pm. I can get up to watch sunrise without worrying if I am waking anyone up. You see there is only one way of living when you are along, that is your way.

5. Just to think about you and your life

We always contemplate on life when we are in the bathroom, why? Because we are along. And alone times are the best time to think about things. When you are along and on a cruise, you don’t have many distractions because there are no phone signals or wifi (you do if you wanna pay for it but I’m cheap) and there is now friend. So you have plenty of time to think about things.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
