Things To Do Over Spring Break

"Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!'" Robin Williams

Things To Do Over Spring Break

Sure, spring break has a stereotype to be full of partying and bad decisions, but in reality it can be a lot better, and a lot safer, than that. Spring break should be memories we can actually remember instead of memories told from other people. It's a time to be with family and friends from back home, not out partying every night. I'm not saying don't have a good time, I'm saying have a good time without making bad decisions. There are more things to do over spring break that are more fun and more productive.

1. Unwind and Forget About Classes.

This is time without worry of classes.You might have work to do over break, but you have time to do it. If you work on it in increments, the work won't be as stressful. Also this now gives you time to actually relax. That's something most college students don't have time to do at school. So forget about class, forget about school and focus on yourself for once. There are endless possibilities now that you have all this free time on your hands.


No classes also means you can sleep in as long as you want! So you can stay in bed until noon with no consequences. This will give you time to feel well rested and it'll make you feel more energized. Sleep is something all of us need to survive and in college, we don't get enough of it. We try our best to get enough sleep through naps when we can but ultimately, we never catch up on sleep or feel rested. It's just not something we have time for in school. Sleep should be our number 1 priority over break.

3. Enjoy Fresh Air with Friends.

It's starting to get nicer out and we've been coped up inside all winter. Go outside! Get some fresh air, hangout with friends, and just go outside. If it's a nice enough day, get a picnic together and spend this time enjoying your friends who you might not have seen in a while. It's a great way to catch up and make fond memories. Maybe get in touch with your inner child again and run around a park. Just go outside and enjoy the beauty of nature for yourself.

Spring Break may not be as long as Winter Break but Spring Break means that you're that much closer to summer and the end of the semester. Use this time to go out and relax, enjoy yourself. Have fun with old friends, this might be the last time you see each other till summer. Soak up as much of break as you can and make the best memories. You won't regret it. Spring Break is the start to the end and we need this time to prepare for the many nights of studying and stay up late to get work done.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
