7 Things To Do Over Spring Break When You're On A Budget

7 Things To Do Over Spring Break When You're On A Budget

Just because you're broke, doesn't mean you can't have fun.

Spring break. It's like a haven after a brutal week of midterms. After the acceptance of either aceing all of your exams or horribly failing all of the exams, spring break is the time to give yourself a break physically and mentally. It's time to relax, and here are 7 ways to chill out over spring break if you are not traveling anywhere and just staying at home and trying to save money.

1. Spa day

It's spring break and you're tired. A DIY spa day at home with your friends is a great way to just chill out and have fun.

2. Binge watch Netflix

I mean if you're like me, you're already doing that. But now, you can watch without any stress of studying.

3. Go exploring by a nearby city and have a photo session

I love a good photo session and road trip to nearby city, espeicaally when you're on a budget. Just walking around the city and exploring things is such a good stress reliver and a fun time when you just want to hang with friends who are also on a budget and would love to have a photo session to remember the good times.

4. Honestly, grab a book and read

I love reading and with my busy schedule in college, I would do anything to just read and relax at my local coffee shop with a nice Iced Carmel Macchiato.

5. Visit your friends from different schools

Spring break is a weird time because you are not able to meet up with your high school friends because you all have different spring breaks. Meeting up with your friends at their schools not only means you can have, but you can also save money because if you have good and friends, you probably won't need to.

6. Go visit your high school

I know some of you are thinking, "Are you crazy? I barely left." I agree. I hated high school, but I do miss some of my younger friends and my teachers. Catching up with them would be great. Please, if you have the opportunity, visit your teachers.

7. Sleep

After a long week of stressing and studying for midterms, you need sleep. You deserve it.

8 Ways To Experience Summer Like Instagram Model Jay Alvarrez

Have the summer of your dreams.

Everyone has come across the gorgeous beach boy at least once while on Instagram, and if not, go do yourself a favor and follow him on Instagram: @jayalvarrez. Best known for his adventurous lifestyle and risk-taking behavior— all caught on camera and mostly edited by himself, most of which he claims they represent his dreams. With summer around the corner, I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling adventurous. This is how you can achieve that in the most Jay Alvarrez fashion possible.

1. Get out of your comfort zone!!

Calling all adrenaline junkies! This one is for you. It could be anything from skydiving to cage diving with sharks (I’ve personally done this and it’s a must.) YES, it is terrifying, but it will make your trip that much more memorable!

2. Bring your whole entourage.

Bring the whole gang with you! Nothing better than sharing everlasting memories with friends. “Remember when..." No, Jeffrey, I don’t remember. Jk, not really though.

3. Go somewhere topical!!!

Where the water is as blue as the sky on a cloudless day and you can catch a golden brown tan. Who needs clothes when you can just permanently live in your swimsuit? I don't know about you but sounds like heaven to me.

4. Eat like an island prince/princess...

Mmm, doesn’t that look delicious! I’m not just talking about the food.

5. Ohana means family.

There is no better way to get a sense of another one's culture than by becoming friends with others from another culture! Mix in with the locals and always support local businesses no matter where you are in the world. Take it from the man himself—his contractor from Hawaii now lives with him. You can follow him at @charleythecontractor on Instagram.

6. Attend a festival.

Festival season is upon us and an absolute must to attend! Dust off your flower crowns and get your glittery ass to a festival.

7. Have no regrets, whatsoever.

Something spontaneous you really want to do? Do it! You want no regrets thinking back on your summer vacay.

8. Take photos and videos!

We were blessed with technology, now is the time to use it. Jay Alvarrez makes thousands of dollars from doing exactly this! His job is a constant holiday! Go check out his new video on YouTube about how he got to be where he is today. Damn, and here I am worrying about my midterms.
