If Your Break Has Left You Feeling Bummed, Here Are Some Things You Can Do To Spice It Up

So you made it through the what do you do?


You have a month off from school, but binge-watching on Netflix can only do so much. If you're not going away for break, things can get pretty boring after a while (you might even start to miss being on campus). Here is a list of things you can do to salvage your break and enjoy it before you have to go back.

1. Check out Groupon

If you haven't already followed Tiffany Haddish's advice on using Groupon, now you should! It's a great way to get good deals on almost anything. You don't need to break your bank to go out anymore, you can have fun on a budget. There are so many options like an escape room, karaoke, rock climbing, and more for cheap. So take out your laptop, grab your card, round up a group of friends, and get ready to have some fun.

2. Explore

Have you ever felt like you barely know anything about where you live? Well now is the perfect opportunity to go out and explore! Venture to places beyond your town and get to know your local area more. If you can't go on a big trip this break, why not take mini ones?

3. Pick up a hobby

If you don't already have one, it's the perfect time to find one. You have an ample amount of free time, so why not spend it learning something new? You can practice your cooking/baking skills, learn a new language or polish up on an old one, take up knitting, or you can even take random classes at the library for free; the possibilities are endless.

4. Find a job

No one likes being a broke college student, so let's start filling out those applications. Getting some work experience and earning a little cash to spend now and next semester isn't such a bad idea.

5. Visit a pop-up museum

Pop-up museums are the "it" thing right now. They are taking art museums to the next level. Pop-ups provide a fun interactive experience along with cool art. These Instagrammable hotspots will be perfect for your feed, but make sure you go fast because they aren't there for long.

6. Go see a play or musical

I saw my first musical in ninth grade and fell in love. Don't let the thought of high prices discourage you, there are some good Broadway musicals you can see for as low as $49. If you search around you can find good seats and even better prices. Everyone should experience going to a play or musical once in their life.

7. Go to a concert

It doesn't have to be a big one, you can go and support your local artists unless you have someone you want to see and have the money to spend. If concerts aren't your thing, comedy clubs can be a good alternative.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

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.
