15 Things To Do On Spring Break Besides Getting "Turnt"

Time to catch up on the little things we forget about.


There's a stereotype when it comes to college kids and the week of Spring Break. But I am not a typical college student, and I am not getting "turnt" or wasted during Spring Break. So here are a few things that I hope will influence your vacations.

1. Go to the botanical gardens

Grab a Polaroid and you're in the making for a great scrapbook

2. Read a new book, or two

I don't know about you, but college takes up pretty much all my time. I remember when I used to love reading a book and finishing it in one day.

3. Volunteer in your community

During school we think about what we have to do all the time. But maybe during Spring Break you can take some time to think about others.

4. Sleep

This is my #1. Staying up until 3:00 am is not in the picture for me. If we do this when class is in session, why waste your sleep time when you have an entire week to catch up?

5. Catch up on your favorite shows

Lay in bed and binge watch.

6. Have a pamper day

Your skin and body will thank you for this. We neglect ourselves while we're stressing over grades.

7. Learn how to cook family recipes

Being in a kitchen with generations of family is so nostalgic and something you'll never forget.

8. Go to the movies

Treat yourself to a new movie! And yes, get popcorn!

9. Spend quality time with your siblings

You know you really miss them!

10. Work out

I don't know about you, but walking to class everyday, and upstairs, is my idea of my workout... So maybe over the break you can try some new moves, like yoga or kick boxing!

11. Have a game night

Grab your family or your closest friends and enjoy some Trivial Pursuit or Cards Against Humanity.

12. Go hiking

Enjoy the view and the warm breeze of Spring!

13. Catch up on car maintenance

Get your oil changed and wash and vacuum your car out. I run out of time when classes are in to do anything for my car.

14. Clean

I always need to clean out my closet, but clean away your dust and cluttered room!

15. Garden

Waking up early when the mornings are warm but have a cool breeze is the most amazing feeling. Enjoy gardening and you'll have a beautiful flower bed to see every morning!

The typical Spring Break is overrated in my book. It should be the time we take for ourselves, to really check in with ourselves and get ready for that next half of the semester. Rethink your break this year and break the status quo!

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
