8 Things To Do During Spring Break
Start writing a post

Ah, Spring. The temperatures are rising, the waters are getting warmer, and the days are getting longer. Spring is such a great time of year and everyone is itching to go out and do something before summer really brings in the heat. Here are some things to do during the famous and glorious week off, known as Spring Break:

Go to the beach.

It wouldn't be Spring Break without a wild beach trip with the crew. Grab your best buddies, rent a house or apartment at the beach, and soak up those sun rays. Just not too much. You don't want to get sunburnt before Summer starts.

Go to the mountains.

Switch it up and go somewhere cold. Find a nice cozy ski resort or borrow a distant relative's cabin for the week and have some snowy adventures.

Spend time with your family.

You may not want to go to the far edges of the Earth for Spring Break. You may just want to stay close to your roots. Whether you're chatting with your parents over dinner or playing board games with your siblings, having family time is always revitalizing.


Nobody seems to like road trips anymore and I don't understand why. Open road, friends, upbeat songs to sing your lungs out too, and the excitement building as you approach your destination. Who could complain about that? Plus, if things do happen to go wrong, it sure makes for a great story.

Visit historical sites.

If parties and trips aren't really your thing, look up some historical sites around your area and delve into the past. You'll learn a thing or two, get a nice walk, and see some beautiful sites. It's a very relaxing alternative.

Catch up with friends.

Visit those friends you haven't seen in ages. Go to a movie or go grab a coffee and talk about all that's happened recently and laugh about things of the past.

Go on a hike.

Week long adventures may not be your thing so get outdoors for a little while and go on a relaxing hike. Nature is good for you.

Just rest.

College is grueling. Catch up on some sleep, eat some good food, and just rest. Don't feel like you're wasting your Spring Break if you just stay at home all week. It's very healing and will leave you feeling revitalized before finals.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
