Spring Break With The Smiths!

It's been a rough week. It's been a rough month. It's been a rough semester. It's been a rough year. Six months down and three more to go. While finals are starting to seem closer than ever, there is one thing that we can all look forward to before we think about all of the sadness that is final exams. Spring break is here, and in good timing because we all know that it is much needed! Midterms have passed (and hopefully so have you!), and we couldn't be happier. Now, it is time for us to head home, let loose, and enjoy the nights that we won't remember with the friends that we won't forget! And who better to help you channel your inner spring-breaker? None other than the Smith family!


Spring break is the time to make plans. Are you going away? Taking a big trip? There are so many options... Miami? Europe? A cruise? Either way, take the time to make plans, because this week should be all about relaxation and enjoyment.


If only for this week, you've got to be true to yourself. Do exactly what you want to do! But don't be disappointed when you take a look at your life and realize what you're hoping spring break will consist of!


And if by the start of spring break week you're still stressed out, just take it day by day...


Remember not to make commitments. This is your week to take a break from school. You get to relax: sleep in, go to bed early, and not wear pants. Don't make plans, and more importantly, don't make plans, instantly regret them, and then break them.


Have no regrets. This week is about Y-O-U, so do what you want to do while you have the time to do it. Whether it be partying, sleeping, or exploring- get it done, and be happy about your choices.


Don't be ashamed to do nothing. Okay, so maybe you'd prefer to be on vacation on a tropical island, but you can have just as much fun as all your friends, even if they're going to Jamaica and you're going to... bed.


Have fun. Be silly. Be a kid again. Or just be you. You can go to Disneyland, or you can go to a museum. Find some friends, make a plan, and have fun doing it!


But if you can get through spring break without looking like this...

Then just maybe it's time for you to treat yourself.


So whether you're planning a week that you won't remember...


...Or a week you won't forget...


...Remember to make the best out of the time you have. Enjoy having no homework, partying like it's 1912, sleeping in late, and going to bed early. Take advantage of the time while you still have it, and I'll see you back on campus in a week ;-)

"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

A Thank you To all The Things That Didn't Work Out

Everything really does happen for a reason.

When something does not work out as planned, our immediate thoughts are overwhelming. I have sat up many nights, staring at the ceiling, wondering why things did not work out as planned. I know sometimes you feel as if the whole world is coming down on you. I know you are frustrated at the mystery of events that could take place.

Trust me, it will get better and work out in a way you never would've imagined.

When you wallow in self-pity after things not working out, you are only hindering your success. You know when everything will get better? It will get better when you start believing in yourself. It will get better when you start to love yourself for who you are and push yourself to your fullest potential.

Life has many different paths and obstacles that we, as human beings, are faced with every day.

When we do not have a choice on the outcome of particular situations, it is hard to see the positive side.

Take a minute to close your eyes and think about the last time something did not work out as planned. Were you optimistic and positive? If not, take this advice from me.

To my 6th grade relationship where I acted out the "Romeo and Juliet" scene for my first kiss, thank you. To the immature middle-school drama, thank you. To dance auditions, thank you. To falling in love with one specific college, thank you. To having a crazy freshman year experience, thank you.

Now, these are just a handful of events that did not go as planned for me personally. I can truthfully say, with all of these "losses," I gained so much more. Sometimes we do not even realize that the plans we are making for our lives may not be the best. The plans that are meant to work out always do.

So, to the girl that is crying for not making the cheer team, say thank you.

To the guy that is frustrated about his career path, say thank you.

To the child that is left out in a friend group, say thank you.

You will one day see the path that IS meant to work out after that one "planned" path did not. It is so important to understand that you are not alone. Every single human being on this earth has once thought of a plan, only to have it destructed by a new one. Without control, without a say, our life plan can change in a blink.

So, to all the things that did not work out, thank you.
