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.

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

To Read Or Not To Read

That is the question.

Much like most of our generation, I think I stopped reading for fun around 2012 and hadn't picked up a book that was not assigned for school for the last 6 years but this summer I tried to make the effort to stay off of Netflix or any other streaming service and not catch up on any new or old shows and finish some books.

Here are my top 5 of the books that I enjoyed this summer…

1. A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo ( John Oliver - Last Week Tonight) 

I started with this classic by John Oliver from Last Week Tonight, that I bought for shits and giggles because he was selling it just to spite Vice President Mike Pence. But in reality, it is a really cute book that's about a gay rabbit that is trying to get with the love of his life. Plus it has some insanely cute art and was a quick 30-minute read.

2. It (Stephen King) 

Let's dive straight into a horror masterpiece from a wholesome picture book. Full disclosure, I started reading this book last summer and it's almost a 1000 pages and I couldn't finish this book before last school year started, but this year I just grit my teeth and tried to finish it. Not that finishing it was hard, this book is as amazing as it is creepy!!

3. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (J.K. Rowling) 

This is one of my favorite books of all time and my favorite book by far in the harry potter series. It is a great mixture of intrigue and humor. The more I read it the sadder I feel because the movie didn't live up to the expectations that the book had set up for me.

4. Crazy Rich Asians (Kevin Kwan) 

I was really excited to read this book because I was really excited to watch the movie. It had been a really long time since I had read a book before the movie was coming out. So a few weeks before the movie came out, I bought the book and had a great time with it. I really loved both the movie and the book and what makes me even giddier is that this book has sequels and, personally, I can't wait to get my hands on them as well.

5. Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte) 

You know that copy of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse that you bought in 5th grade and still have, no? Just me? Anyway, through it away because Wuthering Heights is what it's all about. I recently found out that Eclipse was based on Wuthering Heights and I attempted to read it. Now Wuthering Heights is one of those books that classify under the "classics" section and I have always hated those because I thought they were boring. But Wuthering Heights is absolutely amazing and just hits you with so many emotions it's unbelievable.

I really had a great time just logging off this summer and getting in touch with the literary geek within me. Maybe take some time and prepare your own reading list for Winter Vacation.
