5 Ways To Make The Most Of Your Spring Break At Home

Staying home doesn't have to be boring.

5 Ways To Make The Most Of Your Spring Break At Home
Helena Lopes

Finally! It's Spring Break! Even if it's only for a week or two, school's out and it's time to relax. While I'm sure we'd all love a vacation to some tropical island, your spring break can still be poppin' at home!

Here are 5 activities to do to fill up your time:

1. Sleep in!

Take the first one or two days to sleep in and catch up on that well-deserved rest after slaving away over your studies for the first half of the semester. Your sleep-deprived body and brain will thank you.

2. Do the things you’ve always been too “busy” to do during the semester.

Dig through that list of movies or TV shows you’ve been saving on your queue and finally take some time to watch them. Next on my “To Watch” list are Shameless and The Good Doctor. I’m sure you can binge watch a season or two in a day.

3. Learn something new!

After you’ve gotten your beauty sleep and bummed around for a few days, start being productive! Take some online courses for free on open-course websites like Coursera, learn how to code on Codecademy, or learn some new skills on YouTube or Skillshare.

4. Start studying early.

With all this free time on your hands without classes or exams, maybe it’d be a good idea to get a head start on your homework assignments, upcoming projects, or studying for your next exams. We all know professors are ready to shove us right back into study mode as soon as we get back so save yourself a little stress and hit the books during your free time. I know it’s probably the last thing you want to do during your break but you’ll feel much less overwhelmed when you’re back at school and realize you have an exam the next day.

5. Catch up with friends!

If you’re lucky enough to have a spring break that coincides with your friends’ breaks from other schools, hit them up and catch up on your busy lives! Chances are you probably won’t be able to see them again until the summer. If all of your friends are still in school when you’re off, hit up your campus friends. It’s different being stuck on campus with limited options on things to do and places to eat, but when you’re back at home, the options seem brand new! Eat up before you have to go back to subpar campus food. Take a day trip to the city and pretend you're a tourist, have a picnic, visit the museum; the possibilities are endless.

Whatever you choose to do during your break, soak up all the time you have because it’ll be over before you know it! Make a list of all the things you want to do during this time and be sure to check them all off so you have no regrets when you’re back on campus. Happy Spring!

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
