What To Do On Spring Break When You Have Nothing To Do

Nothing but Netflix right? Wrong.

What To Do On Spring Break When You Have Nothing To Do

Ah, Spring Break, nothing beaches and tanning right? Wrong. Not everyone gets the chance to go on a luxurious beach vacation or fun ski trip. Sometimes you just get stuck at home with not a thing to do, we’ve all been there. So here are a few things to do instead of literally sinking into the couch because you’ve watched 28 straight hours of Netflix.

Go to the dentist.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Why would you volunteer to go get your teeth cleaned when you could be on the beach? Trust me, I wouldn’t either, but if you’re home with nothing to do you might as well be productive. Get all those annoying appointments out of the way. Dentist? Check. Doctor? Check. Optometrist? Check. Chiropractor? Check.

Treat yo' self.

You deserve it! You’ve worked long and hard on midterms and while you might not be able to afford a week long vacation to Mexico, I’m sure you can spend a little cash on yourself at home. Go get a manicure or buy the new shirt you’ve been obsessing over.


Do I need to say much more?

Make a dope playlist.

Or seven of them, hey, you’ve got the time! Why not sit down and find some new tunes to jam to. Maybe even make playlists as gifts for your friends, maybe then you can save the money you would’ve spent on their birthday presents this year, and go to Florida next Spring Break. Just an idea.

Get a job.

I know this sounds lame, and almost impossible because Spring Break is only a week, but hear me out. Try babysitting, maybe you’ll get lucky and your local grade school will have the same Spring Break as you and you can pick up a full-time nanny job for the week. Or pet-sit for people who can afford to go out of town the week. Make money instead of spending it.

Visit friends.

So what you and your bestie’s Spring Breaks didn’t line up? Now you have an excuse to go visit them at their school and see what their new life is like. Also, dorms are free to stay in, so all you need is gas and food money.

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.
