Spring Break In College: Here's To Studying Instead Of Sleeping

So, last week was Spring Break.

I was so excited for Spring Break. A week to sleep in, go to bed whenever, and do whatever for an entire week. Now I am not your average college student. I was not planning to take a trip to a beach somewhere and get plastered. That is the farthest thing from what I wanted to do because it dumbfounds me on why a person would want to get so drunk and party every day that they hardly have time to rest. I work so hard in school that I need time to rest and rejuvenate.

I wanted to sleep in until to whatever time I felt like. I wanted to catch up on the television shows that I have not had a chance to watch in a few months. I wanted to not think about classes, projects, or presentations for the entire week. I wanted to spend my days the way I wanted to and have a restful fun week.

Apparently, that is not how Spring Break will be for me anymore. I spent each day of the week catching up on work. I spent days studying for upcoming tests and working on projects and presentations. I think the latest I slept all week was 9 a.m. which is only about an hour or two extra than what I would normally sleep to. I stressed about homework and classwork for the next week.

The only thing that was different about this week than other weeks was that I did not have classes. That was the only difference. This week was not the restful fun week I was so desperately hoping for. I still do not feel completely rested to start classes back on Monday. I actually dreaded the weekend for the first time in my life. I kept hoping and praying that my week would drag by, but instead if flew by faster than I could have imagined.

So, I am extremely ready for Summer, to say the least.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country.

Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall.
