Why Staying Home For Spring Break Isn't So Bad

Why Staying Home For Spring Break Isn't So Bad

For the people who won't be beaching any time soon.

Since March is right upon us, I’m sure for many universities, Spring Break is just around the corner. Spring Break is a time where students finally get to take a break from the stressful curriculum and annoying professors. Gone are the meetings that fill your day and the lack of sleep that plagues the semester. The student body is finally free to leave all that nonsense at school and finally have some fun. Often, students take Spring Break as an opportunity to go travel, or have fun at the beach, or maybe even go to the mountains. However, not every student takes that path. Not every student feels the need to get that “spring break bod.” Sometimes, for multiple reasons, a student may decide to spend their break at home. Staying home may seem like a really boring alternative to Spring Break, but maybe, just maybe, it’s possible for students to actually enjoy themselves.

One reason staying home isn't so bad is that you're saving a ton of money. The greatest thing about your home is that you don't have to spend money to stay there. Your parents will buy you food, do your laundry, and all that jazz. I'm not saying they should pay for everything, but it's always good to have them help. When you go somewhere for Spring Break you must think about hotel expenses, gas money, money to go out every night, it just grows and grows. School is expensive enough as it is, much less having to pay for a whole week of travel. Being home you get to avoid all of that.

Another great part of being home is that you can do whatever you want. People that go somewhere for Spring Break often go with a big group. When you travel with other people you must compromise what you want to do to accommodate the entire group. Struggling to compromise can sometimes make for a less-than-fun trip. Being home, doing whatever you want is accepted. In fact, it's probably encouraged. The whole purpose of Spring Break, in my opinion, is to relax and you get to do that at home. Sleep in, watch Netflix, eat too much food, do whatever makes you happy.

Lastly, the best part of staying home is getting to spend time with your family. Whether you live thirty minutes away or across the country, it always seems like there's not enough time actually spent with family. Take this week to catch up with them. Tell them funny stories about your semester, your struggles, and your triumphs. Your family loves you and misses you, so getting to spend an entire week with them is the best present you could give them. So even though you won't be getting a tan on a beach somewhere, there are still great benefits to being home. In the end, you'll probably get to watch more Netflix than the Spring Break travelers, and that's much better than sand anyway.

Time to study or better yet time to procrastinate and watch all the Instagram stories possible until the clock reaches midnight and you realize you have not gotten one thing done. We've all been there tapping through Instagram stories when we have had one of these thoughts that made us question why we continue to watch insta stories.

I can't tap fast enough

Sometimes there are just too many stories and not enough time.

No one cares what overplayed song you're listening to 

Seriously, stop we've all heard the song.

Why is this so long?

Why is your entire day videoed on your story?? Do you ever put your phone down?

What are they wearing??

We've all seen people wearing some questionable outfits on insta stories.

No one wants to ask you questions

Please stop posting your questions, just dm them privately to answer them.

What is the relevance of this caption?

Some captions just aren't meant for some images.

You're rich and popular we get it 

Stop flaunting your money or popularity we get it already.

Aww that's cute

Every dog and baby pic ever.

Stop reminding me of how single I am 

We don't need to be reminded of your engagement or boyfriend every 30 seconds, you love each other we know so stop posting it all the time.

No one cares about some strangers birthday Becky 

Posting a pic or 2 for your friends birthday but 10, come on really Becky?

No one cares about your sponsors 

Seriously stop trying to get us to buy stuff, we're broke.

It's game day, we get it 

We know it is game day, it's kind of a national thing, we don't need constant reminders.

So when will we learn to stop watching stories and put our phones down for some time?
