10 Things To Do At Home Over Spring Break

Make the best of your time off!

I know that not everyone is lucky enough to go on a vacation to a beach over their spring break every year, and that's totally okay! Here are some fun things that you can do if you are at home over the break. I've had more spring breaks that not at home and these things have kept me busy!

1. Binge a Show on Netflix

This is pretty obvious. I think a lot of people do this over breaks from school. Some of my favorite shows on Netflix are: The Office, The Carrie Diaries, Grey's Anatomy, and Friends. There a plenty of options, so find what you like and hunker down with a snack!

2. Have a Photoshoot with Friends

This is one of my favorite things to do when I have free time! I call up one of my friends and tell them to put a cute outfit on to go take some photos in a cool location. I have a DSLR camera, but really you can just use an iPhone if you'd rather. This is a super fun way to spend an afternoon and who knows, you might find your new favorite spot in town.

3. Picnic at the Park

As long as the weather permits, packing a lunch and going to the park with a friend or significant other for a picnic is awesome. It's a great way to enjoy the beautiful spring temperatures and to spend quality time with someone you love.

4. Road Trip Somewhere Close

Why not take a couple of days and road trip somewhere relatively close? You could find a city within a couple of hours and go to visit somewhere new!

5. Read A Book

Since I'm an English Literature major, reading is one of my favorite things to do. Spring break is a perfect time to put up a hammock outside and crack open a new book! This is a super relaxing way to pass the time.

6. Spend Quality Time with Family

If you're going home for spring break, odds are your family might be home some of the time too. Take advantage of the time you have at home and spend time with your family!

Play board games, watch a movie or do whatever your family enjoys doing.

7. Try a New Restaurant

FOOD. There are so many restaurants that I haven't tried that I want to soon. Spring break is a great opportunity to try some new food around town.

8. Pamper Yourself


Spend a day pampering yourself. Go get your nails done, put on a face mask, take a bubble bath, etc. Just have a chill day by yourself or with a friend.

9. Go Hiking

This may not be accessible for absolutely everyone, but I think for the most part you can find some area to hike near anyone's home. You may have to drive a bit to get there but I find hiking to be so worth it!

10. Go to an Amusement Park

I personally hate amusement parks and rollercoasters, but I know tons of people love going to Six Flags or other parks like it. The weather will likely be nice over break so you can have lots of fun riding rollercoasters and running around the park.

Hopefully, I've given you some ideas for what you can do if you're having a staycation over spring break!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
