Winter Break Can Get Boring, But It's The Chance To Rejuvenate Before Reality Strikes Again

Here is the thing about winter break.

Winter Break Can Get Boring, But It's The Chance To Rejuvenate Before Reality Strikes Again

It can't be just me. I know there is someone out there who feels the same. You're finally on break and even though break was nice, you're bored.

I've done my traveling, I've done the gift giving and the gift wrapping and now I'm over it. I'm sitting on the couch wondering which Netflix season I'm going to start next.

But then again, the break is about to be over as well.

Who wants to go back on campus, anticipating homework every night and waking up at 8:30 in the morning? Not I.

Here's the dilemma, I want break to be over because I have absolutely nothing to do, but I don't want classes to be back. Although, when we did have class, I always had something to do. Wow, do I sound like a loser or what?

That's the thing about winter break. It's too cold outside to go to the beach, but it's not cold enough to go outside making snow angels.

It's the absolute worst. I've watched all the Halloween movies more than twice and I've already watched the Christmas specials. So, what exactly do I do while I watch my cats have the time of their lives on their expensive cat tree house that I bought them? How selfish of them to not keep me company.

The thing about winter break is that as a college student, I don't have the money to just fly to Rome on the holiday and spend the break with a man I met and soon to be husband. No, no, that only happens in movies. But I would still love to travel.

If only college paid me $15 an hour, that'd be nice, wouldn't it?

The thing about winter break is that everyone is out of town with family, so it makes it so much harder to find someone to go have fun and possibly date. All your friends are gone so you have to wait about three more weeks for everyone to come back, and then everyone is talking about their amazing break when in all honesty you're probably going to lie about some things you didn't do. Cause who wants to sound like a loser?

You slept in most days? Well, why not say you went to the beach and just relaxed alone to yourself with a glass of wine.

You made Ramen every night? Well, say you cooked yourself extravagant meals every day and you've started this new diet.

Actually, don't be a liar. No one likes a liar.

But winter break is fun and it's a time to create memories of yourself and with other people. It's a time to snuggle up and watch movies. It's the perfect time to really relax before school comes again.

In all honesty, winter break is a time to figure out whatever you need to figure out before you go back.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
